Rimba Raid @ Janda Baik 2018 a Rousing Success

Rimba Raid could probably regard Mat Daling as their spiritual home as it was here that the series began, hence would be incomplete without a return to the heart of Taman Negara (National Forest). The event takes place from 6th to 8th July 2018.

As Rimba Raid’s popularity grows over the years, this edition at Mat Daling will be the most ambitious yet, consisting of a 125-km rally spanning 3 days through some of the most beautiful environment Malaysia has to offer. There are currently 200 registered participants from 13 countries.

As such, the organizers provided the opportunity to competitors to collect their rally kit in advance prior to 6th July.

The event was held at Ducati Malaysia’s compound in Naza Auto Mall together with GIVI Asia as both Ducati is one of the sponsors and GIVI Asia is the main sponsor.

Each rally kit included a personalized rally jersey, official event shirt, numbered stickers for the participant’s motorcycle and extras provided by GIVI Asia.

These participants were also able to view and buy some of GIVI’s latest products (at special promotions) such as aluminium cases, waterproof luggage and helmets.

Some 130 participants showed up to collect their kits by the end of the day, allowing for a smoother registration process during the rally weekend.

The event will begin from Xscape Resort Taman Negara on 6th July 2018.
