Honda’s Tiago Monteiro believes the Citroen cars will remain the benchmark in the 2017 WTCC season despite the manufacturer pulling its works team from the championship.
Kuala Lumpur is Malaysia's capital packed with historic monuments, skyscrapers, parks, mega-sized shopping malls, street markets and nightspots. Also an essential part of the vibrant mix are colourfully adorned mosques, churches and temples of the city's Malay, Chinese and Indian communities.
It won't take you long to realise, despite the heat, this is a city best explored on foot. Walk and you can catch all the action and save yourself the frustration of becoming entangled in one of KL's all-too-frequent traffic jams. To tackle this problem, a new mass rapid transit (MRT) system is under construction. Some parts of KL though, retain the laid-back ambience and jungle lushness of the kampung (village) it once was.
Malaysian consumer culture achieves its zenith in KL, where you could spend all day browsing glitzy air-conditioned malls such as Pavilion KL and Mid Valley Megamall in search of bargains. Alternatively, explore Central Market for locally made souvenirs, then dive into the culinary melting pots of nearby Chinatown or Masjid India.
Some other places to visit include Stadium Merdeka and the Petronas Twin Towers. Stadium Merdeka was where, in 1957, the country's first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman punched his fist seven times in the air and declared independence. And the iconic Petronas Towers were officially the tallest buildings in the world when they opened in 1998.
So, what are you waiting for? Come to KL, get inspired.
