Welcome Jazeman Jaafar!

VWClubMalaysia is beyond ecstatic to announce that Malaysia’s very own Le Mans driver Jazeman Jaafar will be a featured guest during our upcoming ‘Bring on The Night’ track day which will be our very first night event at Sepang International Circuit (SIC) on the 3rd of August 2018.

Definitely no stranger to the scene, Jazeman is coming fresh from an outstanding maiden performance at the WEC LeMans 24 Hour Race where his team Jackie Chan DC Racing (LMP2) finished 10th overall in a field of 60 cars during what is regarded as one of the most prestigious events on the annual four-wheel motorsports calendar.

That amongst a whole array of notable achievements, the young gentleman has qualified for his F1 Super License, won the Formula BMW championship, Won the Monaco & Pau GP at the British F3 where he went to take the vice-champion spot for the series, and more recently was vice-champion at the Blancpain GT series whereby he raced for Mercedes-AMG factory team HTP Motorsports. With just a glimpse at some of these milestones, it is no mystery why Jazeman is fast becoming a household name in Malaysian motorsports.

VWClubMalaysia has been keen supporters to the Jazeman journey since the Sepang Asian Le Mans debut at the start of the year where we were graciously invited as a club to come out at support our local hero. Now in less than a months’ time, Jazeman will be featuring at our very own humble track day. Do expect an action filled evening with the racer doing test-runs in some of VWCM’s fast golfs, while offering some pro-tips to participants on how to tackle SIC, and more!

Sunsetting forum vwclubmalaysia.net

VWCM

This coming 02 June 2016 will be the 5th year that it has served the Volkswagen community in Malaysia but it is time to sun-set the forum. While we have plenty of archived information inside the forum, getting everyone to move from using Facebook to the forum, is like pushing boulders up the hill.

Traffic to the forum has dropped significantly in the recent months and attracted many spam bots, making maintenance somewhat time consuming. More importantly, Social Media today provides a much easier access, more reach and media friendly.

No doubt, information cannot be archived on such platform but no one seems to know how to use the “search” button in forum and as traffic drops, the forum has turned into a white elephant.

Facebook Group is much less maintenance, server is online all the time and you don’t have to worry about spam bots either. It is not easy for me to put to sleep something that I have conceptualized, build and maintained since day 1, not to mention many sleepless nights when the server goes offline and two major heart attacks when we lost the entire forum databases, twice!

With heavy heart, I guess we will have to bid goodbye to the forum on 02 June 2016 – still some time to go actually. All activities and information sharing will still continue at our Facebook group, please click here to go to the group and this URL (volkswagenmalaysia.club) will be for primary announcement / events.

Thank you everyone for the awesome 5 years.

Regards.
