Leslie Chang of Big Time and his motor sports associates represented Singapore in the ASEAN-India Car Rally (AICR) that took place between 25 Nov to 21 Dec 2012. The objective of the AICR is to demonstrate India’s proximity to ASEAN, enhance public awareness of the ASEAN-India partnership and further strengthen trade, investment, tourism and people-to-people linkages.
Each member of the Singapore team was given an Orient Mako for the event. Here are some photos of the Mako in action as the team drove from Singapore to various ASEAN countries before reaching their destination, India.
