Ulu Choh MX (UCMX) Round 1/Grand Slam 2: 27th-28th April
Happening over 2 days this coming weekend, the combined event of UCMX Round 1 and Grand Slam II will be chock full from kick off with Kids Moto first thing in the morning.

Grand Slam II starts after that with test rides available for BMWS’s all new R1250GS featuring shift cam technology and R1200GS – a good way to compare the technology and ride. Other models will include the F850GS launched this year and G310GS as well. ATV rides will be available for children as well in between races. Events will round off on Saturday with an evening dusk trail. If you were one of the Singaporeans riding dual sports back in the 90s to 00s, you would remember dusk and night trails were almost a weekly thing back then.

UCMX Round 1 will start on Sunday morning while Grand Slam II will continue after that. The event is expected to end around 2.30pm on Sunday.

Bikers Night @ Handlebar: 27th April
Owner/Proprietor Jan Pek says this is her way of giving support back to the biker crowd – one that was supportive of her business from her start. Her restaurant serves as a local gathering spot for motorcyclists of all walks of life, offering deals on food, drinks and screening biker/rebel themed movies, the joint becomes electric as bikers and their families descend upon the joint to rub shoulders with each other. The monthly event is complemented by a mid-month Greasy Retro Party, meant to tailor to the 80s to early 90s loving crowd but still create a space for the motorcycling community. BIKER LOVE all the way!

Well Worth the Petrol Head’s journey to Kuala Lumpur (Source: Art of Speed Facebook)

8th Annual Art of Speed 2019: 27th-28th July
The Premium Malaysian Custom Event at Serdang Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, features both cars and motorcycles. A place where Malaysian petrol heads gather to put their works on display, market their brands and sell their wares. With less restriction on aftermarket modifications and availability for old cars, motorcycles and parts are much easier and less costly, the vehicles on display push their boundaries and make the event especially attractive for Singaporeans as we get to see our neighbours exercise their creative juices.

It would be good to note, local workshop D Street Customs made an entry last year with a project titled El Jefe. How’s that for Singaporean talent development?

A section of the beach will also be dedicated for the organizers of Art of Speed and Wicked Wallop to run their own lifestyle area. If you have been to any of their events, you know it can only be a roaring good time.

Word is, there will be special arrangement for Singaporeans who wish to attend. From what I’ve been told, it will be planned in a similar fashion to the mass ride for the media briefing with DYAM Tunku Ismail Idris. Til we get closer to the event, that’s all I’m going to say, so BE PREPARED.
