The Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) and Interexpo, organiser and show manager respectively, have firmed up showcases and activities for Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2013 (KLIMS13). Our home motor show will be held from November 15-24 at the Putra World Trade Centre.

Confirmed show attractions include the Malaysia International Auto Salon, The Tamiya Remote Control (RC) Car Race, the American Classic Cars Showcase and F1 simulators.

The Tamiya RC race will take up the entire deck at the mezzanine floor of Hall 1. There will be four categories – RC Race, Drift Race, RC Mini Z Race and the Mini 4WD Race. Open practice sessions will be conducted from November 15-22, the qualifying session will take place on the 23rd, with the finals happening on the last day of the show.


A collaboration between the organisers of KLIMS13 and Tom’s Stickers, the Malaysia International Auto Salon will focus on the aftermarket scene and modified cars, of which more than 30 rides will be displayed at KLIMS13. Prizes go to the best body kit, interior, paint and stickers. Visitors can vote for their favourite car in two categories, Open Standard and Open Extreme.

If old American muscle is more your kind of thing, check out the American Classic Cars Showcase, where 25 big and shiny rides wearing Pontiac, Dodge, Ford and Chevrolet badges will be on display. Want to get hands on? Take part in the Formula 1 simulator challenge for adults, ladies and children.
