Singapore - The inaugural 2x4 Fiesta@Carros that was hosted by Automoment took place on the 30 September 2018 at Carros Centre's roof top from 3pm to 8pm.

Being themed as an activity focused event for petrolheads, the 2x4 Fiesta managed to pull various communities together to deliver a fun-filled Sunday afternoon for everyone.

As the name suggests, the 2x4 Fiesta was targeted at both motorbike and car owners - something that is rarely considered and planned for. With the generous sponsorship of Carros Centre serving as the venue for the event, 2x4 Fiesta was a go!

Apart from the sumptuous food sold by El Cubanos and Hatter Street Crawford, visitors to the event were treated to experiences, sights and sounds of an assortment of activities with emcees Twins Gone Wrong providing vocal - and at times visual - entertainment throughout the five hours.

We caught up with Royston Chong of Automoment for his thoughts of the event and this was what he had to say, "The 2x4 Fiesta was conceptualised as an activity oriented event, bringing different communities together to share their activities and programmes. It was meant to be something different from the usual meets. We (Automoment) have been the event partner for Carros Centre since the beginning and since then, there have been both two and four wheelers meets and gatherings held at Carros Centre. In Singapore, we currently do not have such a community event where we can have both communities coming together. Hence, as we have the great support of such a conducive venue as well as contacts to both communities, we could create an event of such nature."

When asked if there will be another 2x4 Fiesta to follow after the success of 2018's, Royston added, "Yes, there should be another 2x4 Fiesta and hopefully it will become an annual event. We (Automoment) hope that we can get a greater participation from the two wheelers, and of course more funding from potential sponsors. The next 2x4 Fiesta should see more activities, and more presence from the 2 wheelers community."

Talented hobbyists from Drift Society with their radio controlled drift cars. Tandem drifting may look simple, but it takes the RC Drifters to be in perfect synchronisation in terms of speed and angle of their cars to negotiate hairpins or wide sweepers through the track.

Asia Driver Search and SimFai Solutions organised a driving simulation competition for all visitors to the event. Held in the comfort of an air conditioned room, a never ending queue formed for some time over the two rigs that were set up.
