Johnnie Walker Black Circuit Lounge Is Coming To KL

The luxurious Johnnie Walker Black Circuit Lounge is hitting Kuala Lumpur on 9th of April 2011 at an undisclosed venue because it’s so exclusive that I’m not told about the venue yet, maybe until the passes are given to me, that is..

I was pretty upset because I’ve missed out the highly anticipated one in Singapore as Johnnie Walker is one of my favourite brands and for it to be involved with Formula One, a stylish a sophisticated sport, it’s definitely one of the many reasons that my friends would say, “Wish you were here”..

I wish to be there at the Black Circuit Lounge party because Johnnie Walker, the world’s leading Scotch whisky has partnered with Vodafone McLaren Mercedes because they both shared the same values of innovation, winning, and leadership..

I need the vibe as much as I could because I’m on the verge to create something exciting and interesting with my bunch of partners to revolunitize the social world..

Last but not least, Johnnie Walker has a cool and inspirational campaign with the Black Circuit Lounge that allows me to experience the lifestyle of Formula One..

Like I said, I’ve missed out on the highly anticipated one in Singapore, I definitely want to go for the Kuala Lumpur installment of Black Circuit Lounge party!

Who knows I might be able to meet Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton at the party..

Johnnie Walker Black Circuit Lounge 2011

Formula One come and go like a gust of wind, heavy news headlines of strong contenders every new season and winners are no longer the usual suspects of the red colour, if you get what I mean ;)

Formula One (F1) was almost as boring as attending a History class when Mika Hakkinen retired from F1, until 2009 F1 champion Jenson Button joined McLaren Mercedes in 2010 and teamed up with the youngest world champion so far, Lewis Hamilton..

Johnnie Walker, the World’s number one Scotch whisky, which is one of my favourites, and global partner for Formula One team McLaren Mercedes, once again will be bringing Malaysians the ultimate VVIP after-race party experience to Kuala Lumpur, the Black Circuit Lounge..


*Step Inside The – Black Circuit Lounge*

This highly anticipated event is an inside-look at the glamorous lifestyle of global racing that Johnnie Walker has privileged access to and of course to bring that experience to normal citizens like me :D

On Saturday April 9th 2011, Johnnie Walker will once again organizing the Black Circuit Lounge, an official race party of the Malaysian Grand Prix and host the crème de la crème of Malaysian society where party-goers will be treated to V-VIP privileges and a high-flying lifestyle by the likes of McLaren Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button and of course other drivers..

I’ve been to a few small-scale Black Circuit events few years back but I bet those are definitely not anything like this Black Circuit Lounge which I think any party-goer would die for it, just saying..

ESPN Star’s The Greatest – F1 Driver

Well, I might not be the biggest Formula One (F1) fan around, at least, I’m aware that the race is just around the corner..

If not mistaken the Malaysian F1 Grand Prix is on 5th of April 2009, Sunday, at Sepang International Circuit (SIC)..

Like I said, I might not be the biggest F1 fan ever, but I’ve went to Sepang to watch the F1 live 3 times~!


*I still keep my tickets*

Okay I know it’s the cheapest ticket, RM100 on Hill Stand, at least I went..I was at Sepang in 2001, 2002, and 2005..

The 2001, I went there by KTM with my cousin brother..2002, with my father..2005, by KTM with my friends..


*Well kept*

It’s definitely very very different from what you’ve been watching on television..

Now history aside, did you know that ESPN Star is having a game on in conjunction with the F1 fever?

If I’m not mistaken, they have conducted a Poll-like kinda games, called The Greatest Athelete or something, where our homegrown Nicol David fared very well..

Now, they’ve conducted another game called The Greatest F1 Driver~!!

To show your support, please proceed to ESPN Star : The Greatest F1 Driver for the game..Where you will see the page of The Greatest game..


*Front page of The Greatest F1 Driver Poll*

16 iconic drivers have been shortlisted, who were pre-determined by fans across the region through forum discussions..

The list comprises of drivers from the past til present, namely Jackie Stewart, Ayrton Senna, Juan Manuel Fangio, Alain Prost, Niki Lauda, Emerson Fittipaldi, Jack Brabham, Mario Andretti, Michael Schumacher, Mika Hakkinen, Stirling Moss, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, South-East Asia’s first F1 driver, Malaysian Alex Yoong, and the first Indian to participate in F1 Championship, Narain Karthikeyan..

As you can see, you can actually click on the drivers’ thumbnail for more details of the drivers..

From there you might want to choose the greatest driver ever, based on facts and history instead of blindly voting for your favourite drivers..

On the top right, click on “Click Here To Play” to proceed with the voting game..


*The Knock-Out Voting Competition*

As you can see from the latest result, it’s already in the Quarter-Finals..

I can actually predict Michael Schumacher meeting Raikkonen in the Semi-Final and another Semi is happening soon..

You can only click on the battles where the date is in RED color, where the voting can only be done on particular days and all..

The Quarter-Finals will be running from 16th-30th March, Semi-Finals from 30th March – 2nd April, and Finals from 2nd April – 4th April..

The result will be announced on 5th April during the chequered flag a.k.a after the race is finished..


*The page where you get to vote for your favourite drivers*

Well, I’ve already knew that Michael Schumacher would go far in this competition..It’s not surprising at all..

BUT, what if you put Michael Schumacher in other cars that didn’t fare as well, such as Minardi, or some manufacturers..

Of course in turn, you put the drivers on Minardi or other manufacturers in Ferrari or McLaren..I bet it will be a fair competition..

Yes I know driving skills are very important but at the same time, the engine plays a major role in car racing..

I reckon that the Final showdown will be between Michael Schumacher versus Fernando Alonso..

I actually quite like Fernando Alonso as he went against all odds in his mid-range Renault and toppled the big players like Ferrari, McLaren, and Williams..

So, who’s your favourite driver? Be there and vote for it~!
