#Live2Drive Team Completes Adventure Across 2 Continents with Continental Tyres
The #Live2Drive team of local professionals who made an adventure of a lifetime travelling from Malaysia to Europe in classic Volkswagen vehicles made it safely back to the country after clocking over 52,000 km of road travel.
The team drove three Volkswagen Kombis and a Beetle (fondly known as ‘Nana’) along the treacherous Trans-Siberian route. All of the vehicles were equipped with Continental ComfortContact 6 (CC6) and UltraContact (UC6) tyres.
At a press conference at its premises in Petaling Jaya, Continental Tyre Malaysia (CTM) shared that the team covered 30 countries over eights months and 607 hours of driving on the road.
CTM Managing Director and Head of Continental’s ASEAN Region for BU PLT Replacement APAC, Cameron Wilson said, “We are delighted to welcome the #Live2Drive team back to Malaysia and are proud of how the team managed to inspire those they meet as well as their contribution to the community along the way.”
One of the team members, Cliften Nathaniel shared his experience, “Driving through what was a ‘cold summer’ in summer tyres was beyond my expectations. Cold summer is like driving up really high altitudes with cold temperatures, rough hard off-roads, as well as through snow and some parts of icy roads.”
“Despite all that, the tyres performed fantastically and made us wanting to keep driving. I used two different sets of Continental tyres – 185/65/15 and 215/55/17 for my Kombi – apart from the comfort, they also handled well in wet conditions and allowed me more confidence when driving through the continents in a classic car.”
