Kicking off the 2009 Formula One Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix road show at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, race promoter Sepang International Circuit (SIC) today unveiled a full racing kit Mazda RX-8, which has been put up for grabs as the main prize for ticket buyers at any of its roadshows.
“Get your race tickets at our F1 roadshows and while you enjoy yourself in exciting fun games and entertainment, you could also be that lucky winner taking home this beautiful mean machine,” SIC Chief Executive Officer Razlan Razali said at the unveiling the grand prize, which was also attended by Mazda Malaysia marketing manager Shahidin Sahamid.
“While there would be many other prizes that can be won by ticket buyers in various promotion campaigns conducted by us, this Mazda RX-8 is exclusively offered to ticket purchasers at the F1 roadshows,” he said, adding that roadshow at Pavilion would continue until tomorrow (Sunday, February 21).
Packed with fun-filled programmes, fans visiting the Formula One roadshows could indulge themselves with plenty of activities including F1 simulator games and pop quizzes while winning lucrative prizes including tickets to catch the 2009 Formula One Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix live at the circuit in April. They would also have the rare opportunity of having a close look at the Formula One cars on display and take photographs to show off through their friends.
Apart from the race tickets, fans could also have the opportunity to select a long list of collection of Formula One teams and racing merchandise, which would also be on sale at the roadshows.
“This year’s F1 roadshow is part of the mission of the new Sepang International Circuit to get the fans closer not just the F1 races; but also all our events and the circuit as a whole. While we have maintain tickets as cheap as previously, we would be organising plenty of off-track events and on-site entertainment to give fans value for money and feel closer to the circuit. That’s the mission of the new Sepang International Circuit,” added Razlan, who took office last October.
After Pavilion, the F1 roadshow would proceed to City Square, Johor Baru from February 27 to March 1 before moving to Penang to Highway Auto City in Juru and at Gurney Plaza, Penang from March 6 to 8. Its’ last stop would be at One Utama, Petaling Jaya from March 25 and 29.
Malaysia will host Round 2 of the 2009 Formula One World Championship from April 3 to 5 with Australia organizing the opening round at Albert Park in Melbourne on the preceding weekend.
Launching the event and the new logo of SIC on Thursday, SIC Chairman Datuk Mokhzani Tun Dr Mahathir had announced that the 2009 event, which would be the 11th edition of the Formula One Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix, had been planned to be the best ever with the introduction of new programmes including an open air post race concert featuring funk acid jazz superstar Jamiroquai that would be opened for free for ticket buyers.
There would be other kinds of entertainment as well at the circuit including children and family programmes apart from good food for the spectators. Mokhzani also promised an efficient public transportation system and urged fans to make full use of the ERL service and Skybus to enjoy this year’s race.
For the first time ever, SIC, which pride itself with a new logo and mission statement “Alive with Adrenalin’ – would also be organizing a meet-the-F1 drivers session at the circuit where the circuit would be making arrangement to have all 20 drivers available at the session – similar to the one that SIC had successfully conducted for the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix.
Razlan said that Mazda RX-8 was only of many promotions that would be undertaken by SIC to woo in the fans; where it is targeting a full-capacity of 130,000 spectators for the race.
