21st April, Sepang  Sepang International Circuit has announced the appointment of Motorsport Asia Limited (MAL) as series organiser of the Malaysian Super Series 2010. “The move was made to ensure further improvement in terms of the overall running of the series and also for better commercialisation in terms of promotion and advertising,” said Sepang International Circuit CEO, Razlan Razali.

“SIC will still be involved in track preparation, and the regulations will remain unchanged as issued by SIC previously. Any changes deemed necessary to the regulations will be done via the Additional Supplementary Regulations. MAL will also be supported by Two Wheels Motor Racing Sdn Bhd,” he said.

Motorsport Asia CEO David Sonenscher said Motorsport Asia is proud to take on this new challenge. “The Malaysian Super Series has been a staple with the Malaysian racing community, but up until this time it has been very much a Club racing event. Our objective will be to bring higher levels of professionalism, promotion and media coverage to establish the MSS as a truly credible National event, offering both a platform for National Malaysian motorsport development programmes as well as credible championships open to high level International competitors.

“One of our goals has always been to help promote the Motorsport Industry in Malaysia and this collaboration will enable us to take a much more direct role in this,” said Sonenscher.

Ron Hogg, the Promotions Director of Two Wheel Motor Racing Sdn Bhd is more than happy to be given the privilege to work alongside MAL in assisting the MSS. He said, “We are glad to provide the assistance to ensure the continuous growth in Malaysian motorsports industry. I believe with our many years of experience running PETRONAS AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championship and PETRONAS Asia Road Racing Championship will be able to take MSS a notch higher.”

Organised and promoted by Sepang International Circuit (SIC), the Malaysian Super Series, or simply referred as MSS within the motorsports fraternity, was introduced to provide more top level competition for Malaysian racers and as a platform to unearth new talents.

First organized in 2002, it has since grown in stature to become Malaysia’s national championship for motor racing. The MSS comprises of the bike and car competitions. Apart from the local championships, international racing series are sometimes incorporated in the race with the Hong Kong Classic Car Series being its permanent partner.

In giving more prominence to the series, the final rounds of bike and car championships are run with world class series with the bike competitions such as running as support races for the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix.

Previously, the MSS car competitions were incorporated in the Super GT International Series Malaysia race programme.

“SIC would like to position MSS as the platform to the World Championship or equivalent to the competitive European and Japanese championships. MAL has a long and distinguished track record, thus we believe that our partnership with MAL will help us to achieve this national agenda,” said Razlan.

“We have already planned for the bikes category, in which the top ranking Malaysian will be selected for the wild card for the 125cc and Moto2 of the world championship. We are still determining the development plans for 4 wheels, and MAL as our partner will be assisting us,” he said.

This year, the first round of both MSS Club and Premier, previously scheduled on April 18 and May 1-2 respectively have been re-scheduled and will be held from May 28 to 30. The MSS Club and Premier event will now be combined and known only as Malaysian Super Series.

The dates for all rounds would be as follows : -

Round 1 - 28th – 30th May.
Round 2 - 25th – 27th June.
Round 3 - 30th July – 1st August.
Round 4 - 16th – 18th July.
Round 5 - 17th – 19th Sept.
