A fortnight ago, probably one of Singapore’s most exclusive car clubs, the EXOTICARS CLUB rode their way into their 7th Anniversary Dinner hosted by W Singapore, at Sentosa Cove.

Having first started their engines back in 2009 with a group of 30 supercar enthusiasts, the EXOTICARS CLUB (ECC) has since grown to a close-knitted community of 130 like-minded supercar owners. Unlike many other super car clubs, the ECC is just one of the only few non-brand exclusive car clubs that welcomes petrol-heads who owns some of the most illustrious (and fastest) supercars on the island.

Highly regarded within their professional sectors of choice, the ECC member is more than just a massive supercar lover and owner, but also a qualified “mover-and-shaker” within their own industry space.

As a contingent of supercars, led by ECC President, Chia Boon Teck, pulled up into the arrival lobby of the W Singapore, hotel staff and guest looked curiously on as a panel of supercar event photographers greeted the ECC members upon their arrival at the black-tie ECC Anniversary Dinner.

As guest tucked in to a select “four-hand” menu, exclusively prepared by the Winner of Masterchef Australia Season 2, Adam Liaw, alongside W Singapore Executive Chef Larry Li, ECC Club President, Chia Boon Teck took to the stage rostrum for a special opening segment, where he expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the people who has made the ECC what it is today.

Amongst these loyal supercar lovers, special mentions were given to a few individuals including Allan Chua, Chris Tong and Timothy Wimala for going the extra mile for the ECC.

Special mentions were also given to ECC Vice-President, Jaacky See and Secretary / Treasurer Wong Kai Yun, who were amongst the founding leaders since the Club’s birth.

“We all had a grand time at ECC’s 7th Anniversary- black tie event. This is now something I look forward to every year. It just keeps getting better every year.”, comments one of the ECC’s youngest members, Heeraj Sharma, who runs a family business dealing in cosmetics, and has been part of the ECC for about two years now.

“I feel honored being one of the youngest members in EXOTICARS CLUB. My age has not been a problem for me at the Club, as I feel that most of us are on the same wavelength given our common interests.”, added the 27 year young Sales Director, Heeraj Sharma.
