In King of Clubs 2014, we all know who was crowned the King and which club had won the individual challenges, but what happened underneath all that hard work? You are probably left wondering how did Lotus Official’s Club Malaysia took home that coveted “Trofeo”, or maybe how did Volvo’s Enthusiast Club Malaysia made to second in the standings (shocker, but yay for the VECM!), or why there were only nine clubs and not ten despite the odds.
 
Here are the five fun facts about how we came to that end results in King of Clubs 2014.
 
Did you know?
 
No.1 

Despite being the first ever King of Clubs in Malaysia, Lotus Official Club Malaysia only won one out of the five challenges in 2014. The club was consistent throughout the competition recording three second place points in Go-Kart, Simulator, Trivia and Autocross and one fourth place points in RC. Consistency is key in this competition!

No.2

Volvo Enthusiasts Club Malaysia didn’t come out on top of the challenge chart for any of the challenges with only a second place in the Trivia challenge, but yet the team had accumulated enough points to plonk them firmly in second place! Awesome stuff Volvos!

No.3

VERV Club, or otherwise known as the classic Minis’ club to us, battled their way to two full pointers in Go-Kart and Simulator challenges. But unfortunately, they only managed to tie themselves in with Club Audi Malaysia in third. This just goes to show that winning challenges doesn’t necessarily bring you that crown!

No.4

Philip Ng from the Lotus club might have taken top honours in the Gymkhana challenge, the club was not the team that won the challenge, Club Audi Malaysia (CAM) had clocked in a time that is three seconds faster than the Lotuses.

No.5

While the Top Ten list of the Gymkhana Challenge had been made up of flying Audis, snippy Lotuses and zipping Minis, a Volvo S60 and Peugeot 408 Turbo had snuck in and beat out most of them! Guess a Volvo can outrun a Mini and a Peugeot can out manoeuvre a Beemer!

King of Clubs 2015 will be happening from 3rd to 4th October 2015 at Pullman Putrajaya Lakeview hotel. Mark your dates and head down there as the action takes place!
