Weekly auto agenda: Indonesian Motor Show
Friday 16 July 2010
New models are expected to make a debut in Indonesia next week, with the opening of the Indonesian International Motor Show. Although the show has made an effort to go eco-friendly this year (the 2010 logo is a leaf) and small cars such as the Chevrolet Spark and Ford Fiesta are expected to make a splash, speed lovers won't be disappointed, as supercars will be lining up to attempt a "drift battle" on the racetrack.
