SEPANG, 10 October 2016 – Catering to the motorsport fan in you, the Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix 2016 won’t just be seeing action on the asphalt. This year Sepang International Circuit (SIC) once again plays hosts to brands motorsports and motorcycle enthusiasts recognise and love, with the return of the Mega MotoGP Carnival, bigger and better this time. Set to take place from 28 to 30 October 2016, the carnival’s 80 booths for trade and vending have been completely booked, offering something for just about everyone.
The biggest names in the industry will be participating, including fan favourites such as Kawasaki, Yamaha, KTM, BMW Motorrad, Boon Siew Honda, Repsol, VR46 Official Racing Apparel, MOTUL, SHARK, SHELL, GIVI, Racing Boy, Liqui Moly and many more. Beyond the multitude of motorsports-related goods, there will be brands frequently associated with sports, like DRIVE M7, Rudy Project, Red Bull and Tissot participating, as well as organisations like Sunway Education. Spectators could certainly be taking home a special find they may not have expected.
“The vendors offer every spectator, regardless of age or personal interest, something to spark their passion beyond the tarmac. With something to appeal to every member of the family, fans can stock up on motorcycle parts and accessories or even purchase a brand new bike, or perhaps take home a new watch or pair of sunglasses. Not all spectators are also bikers, especially with some coming just to support our Malaysian riders, so the Mega MotoGP Carnival aims to have inclusive appeal. We believe the MotoGP is a wholesome event that can be enjoyed by the whole family as a weekend outing,” said Dato’ Razlan Razali, Chief Executive Officer of Sepang International Circuit.
SIC is also using the MotoGP as a platform for a good cause, by offering The Ten Ringgit Club space to create awareness on their cause and also display Penan weave-ware during race weekend. The non-profit organisation, formed to improve the education opportunities of marginalised children in northern Sarawak, also helps generate income for the Penan villagers by offering their weave-ware for sale. Purchase colourful woven items such as purses, baskets and handbags, ranging from RM20 to RM150, or contribute to The Ten Ringgit Club by pledging any amount over RM10 to help fund the education of marginalised children.
