last year's concert
This year is my 12th year attending the Super GT in Malaysia. Previously it was purely fun from a motorsports side of things. But last year under the banner of JPM Motorsports, it was fun for the whole family, old and young. I remember the concert, Velocita party, exotic and classic car display, shopping and lots of food.

This year, Super GT Round 3 promises even more great stuff. Motorsports enthusiast can feast their eyes on the GT300 and GT500 cars at their finest accompanied by the gorgeous race queens.
There will be also be an exhibition of rides including Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche, Alfa Romeo, BMW, Ford and even Land Rover to provide alternatives for 4x4 lovers. Not only that, private owners will be bringing some of the rarest cars as well including the Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4, Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, Morgan Aero Super Sport, Ford GT40 replica and many more. To top it off, Ducati and Harley Davidson will be bringing their best motorbikes to the show.

This year the organisers of Super GTare attempting the Malaysia Book of Records 2nd Edition of the Biggest Super and Performance Car Gathering. You will see the makes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Aston Martin, and other road-going variants of SUPER GT Racing Machines such as the Lexus SC430, Honda NSX, Nissan GTR and Mazda RX7.
