Driving around the Sepang circuit in full course is always what i dream to do and this time i only managed to just sit in this gorgeous Renault Megane 250 sport car as a passenger ( Taxi Ride ).
Before we managed to head to the open track , there was a long queue at the pit lane about 20 minutes and we ( myself and the instructor ) have a chat about cars , how do i get here ? do i own any sport car now ? when i'm going to get one ? & on....on...It always a interesting topic related to automobiles especially with a professional.
Yup... .. finally we hit the track and he is driving flat out and i was holding firmly with one hand on the top hand holder and another hand on the right hand side on the hip support of the bucket seat.
The driver is pushing this car to the limit without any doubt or what would happen curve head even with the traction button "OFF".
The main reason to turn it off is to avoid under steer , so the car can turn into corners more easily and effectively and is true.
This car is well equipped with stability control where the car central of gravity is low to keep the car attached to the ground even with high speed cornering or sharp turning.The worse thing what would happen is the car will just drift or go side way but it wouldn't roll over unless for any particular reason .( this is only referring on the track )
We have about 3 laps and it was worth it and you definitely going to miss it and wish to come back again with others performance car.
Maybe a Porsche 911 turbo , any BMW M series & ... .. .
