Ford Penampang Hosts Its Largest-Ever Mega TT Gathering Yet

This 7th iteration of Mega TT Gathering was organised in collaboration with the Ford Ranger Owners Club (FROC) Borneo Region. 

While Ford may not necessarily have the biggest market share in Malaysia, there are nevertheless still fervent fans of the Blue Oval marque and its models over here. 

The Mustang community in Malaysia for instance is a rather active one, with the local Ranger pickup group being similarly enthusiastic too. A fact that is most recently exemplified by Ford Penampang (Rightpower Corporation) having recently announced that its 7th Mega TT Gathering was the largest ever since its conception.

Organised in collaboration with the Ford Ranger Owners Club (FROC) Borneo Region and held the J Borneo Native Village in Penampang, this event had brought together 107 club members with their formidable pickups from diverse locations across Sabah, Labuan and even Brunei. All in, a total of 320 participants comprising owners and their family members were present at this event. 

The 7th Mega TT Gathering was also not any typical teh-tarik session too, but instead was a day filled with vibrant activities, exciting prizes and awards recognising the most outstanding Rangers across various categories. From thrilling games and soulful karaoke sessions to delightful performances and the anticipation of lucky draw prizes, the day’s programme was carefully curated to cater to the interest and entertainment of all participants and making it a memorable occasion for everyone involved. 

“Beyond the festivities, the 7th Mega TT Gathering stood as a testament to the stronger bonds forged among Ford Ranger enthusiasts. It encapsulated the essence of the ‘Ranger Lifestyle,’ emphasising not just the love for a robust vehicle but also the sense of community and shared experiences that come with it,” said Edmund Lau, Dealer Principal, Ford Penampang (Rightpower Corporation).

“We truly appreciate Ford Penampang’s support and sponsorship in this event. Its success was evident not just in numbers but also in the lively atmosphere and the spirit of togetherness it fostered. It is a true testament to the unity and deep-rooted connections within the Ranger community, paving the way for more exciting adventures and camaraderie in the future,” said Julius Sidin, President of Ford Ranger Owners Club Borneo Region.

Established in 2013, FROC Borneo Region currently consists of 1009 members. The club organises two to three events each year to foster closer collaboration with SDAC-Ford that will forge more in-depth knowledge of the Ranger and offer more value-added activities for its members.

“We are thrilled to see our Ford dealers taking the initiative to establish closer connections with their communities. Kudos to Ford Penampang and the Ford Ranger Owners Club Borneo Region for the success of this year’s Mega TT gathering. This is what it means to be part of the Ford family where like-minded owners come together to bond and we are delighted to support our owners’ community any way we can,” Turse Zuhair, Managing Director of Sime Darby Auto ConneXion-Ford.

SDAC-Ford continues to be committed to maintaining close relations with car club members by supporting the network of various Ford owners’ clubs through close collaboration that provides opportunities to foster deeper mutual understanding and camaraderie.
