SIC Offers win-win F1 Formula For Malaysian Corporate Companies


Media Release

12th February, Kuala Lumpur -
 With the ninth edition of the Formula One Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix just eight weeks away, Sepang International Circuit (SIC) has intensified its campaign to secure further support for the event with a special session with top corporate leaders in Kuala Lumpur today.

Offering packages described as `a win-win Fl formula', SIC chairman Datuk Mokhzani Tun Dr Mahathir called on the corporate companies to take opportunity from the Formula One race as a platform to enhance and explore their business opportunities while supporting a national agenda by the Government.

"As you are aware, Formula One is not merely a programme for SIC or the city of Kuala Lumpur. Instead, it is a national project by the Government to enhance Malaysia's image globally; a catalyst to develop motorsports in Malaysia as a sports as well as a business; as well as for the development of its automotive sector.

"Now, it has become a prime strategy in generating national revenue from tourism, which SIC, Tourism Malaysia and the City of Kuala Lumpur are fully committed to and which had shown over the years of its huge impact impact to national economy," he said at the Fl Corporate Cocktail at Westin Kuala Lumpur.

With the event commanding hundred of thousands of television viewers, Mokhzani said Malaysian companies could make immediate impact in international mileage by taking up the circuit's advertising packages around the track and at the spectator areas.

On a smaller scale, they could also take up advertising spaces with the official programme or simply committing themselves as partners to the event with SIC, he added.

The companies could also take up the Paddock Club, Corporate Suite and Corporate Platform packages to entertain their business associates and clients at the circuit while enjoying the world's most prestigious motor racing event.

Hailed as the Ultimate Experience in Formula One, the Paddock Club provides access for guests to be near the F1 pits and garages; meeting drivers up close and enjoy the race from private lounges at the upper terrace of the pit building. Passes are sold between RM14,440 and RM16,340 each.
