“This is another initiative by us to further promote Malaysia’s top racing series, which are organised by us. Through this special Paddock Season Card, it will help the competing teams in bringing in their partners and also to host the potential sponsors. These are truly attractive offers that the national motorsports fraternity should not miss as we will have limited number of passes for sale. So, get your cards now,” said SIC Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Razlan Razali.
In making the offer more meaningful for fans, SIC is also offering options, which is just RM85 including GST for access to the MCS and MSBK; and another package of RM106 including GST for access to the two endurance race – S1K, which is scheduled from 9 to 12 November, and the MOTUL Sepang 12 Hours, which is scheduled in the following month from 13 to 17 December.
“The paddock cards are already on sale for fans to enjoy the opening round of the MCS, which is happening at the circuit this weekend. The MSBK, on the other hand, opens next weekend from 17 to 19 March,” added Dato’ Razlan.
