Motorsport Asia CEO David Sonenscher said
Motorsport Asia is proud to take on this new

a staple with the Malaysian racing community,

Club racing event. Our objective will be to
bring higher levels of professionalism,

thus we believe that our partnership with MAL
will help us to achieve this national agenda,”

determining the development plans for 4 wheels,
and MAL as our partner will be assisting us,” he
