Anyway, a couple of months back, I joined the F3000 Powerboat Race in Putrajaya and even though I only had a few practice sessions, say about 3 times max, dude, I still managed to get sixth place. Yes, I'm awesome like that. And man, I enjoyed every single moment of it. It's such an amazing feeling when my powerboat reached its maximum speed cause it feels like I'm flying macha!
If you weren't there on that day, no scared. Here are a few pictures from the practice sessions for you. Enjoy.

|Here I am in my safety suit. Yes, it involves me wearing a diaper like outfit|
|And here's the organizer of the race, Robert Fernandez, briefing me for the last time before the race starts.|
|Yes, I'm driving the boat on the right. And yes, I managed to overtake the other boat.|
Here's the video of the race.
As you know, I came in sixth and macha, I must say it is actually quite an amazing thing. I'm not trying to praise myself or anything but I think I might have the natural talent for this. Here's the guy who won the race.
