Day 3 – Kuala Terengganu to Johor Bahru
After dashing across the mainland from west to east, the convoy hits the road to trace the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia southbound from Terengganu to Johor. Then, on the East Coast Highway, our walkies beeped, and Bobby’s voice was frantic on the radio.
“Guys, my wallet is still in the hotel room!”
What followed was a 60km detour as the Aurizn team split off from the convoy at Ajil to double back to Kuala Terengganu, retrieve Bobby’s wallet, which thankfully was kept in safe possession by the hotel staff, then wringing all 367 horses from the Mercedes-AMG C 43’s 3.0-litre V6 to regroup with the convoy at Teluk Cempedak.
Well fed with Thai food at Kuantan, the convoy pushed on southbound and continued along the coastal road to Johor Bahru. Along the way, we were treated to some pretty spectacular views of the South China Sea as we looked out of our windows to the left.
