PETRONAS Yamaha SRT Supports VISIT MALAYSIA 2020 At Silverstone

PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team has shown its support of Tourism Malaysia’s Visit Malaysia 2020 campaign at the British Grand Prix by presenting the team’s Yamaha YZR-M1 motorcycles alongside a Visit Malaysia 2020 branded London taxi. The PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team line-up of Franco Morbidelli and Fabio Quartararo posed with the Visit Malaysia 2020 taxi and their race bikes in the Silverstone pit lane just hours after qualifying fourth and eighth for tomorrow’s British GP, the twelfth round of the World Championship.

One hundred and thirty-five Visit Truly Asia Malaysia liveried London taxis and two London buses will soon grace the streets of London to highlight Malaysia as the destination of choice in Asia for sports fans. In further support of Visit Malaysia 2020, Sepang Racing Team owner, Sepang International Circuit, is hosting a number of sporting events with international appeal, most notably the penultimate round of the 2019 MotoGP World Championship on November 1-3.

In December, the circuit will also host the FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) and FIA World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) in a ground-breaking fusion of the worlds of two-and-four-wheel motorsport under the headline, Races of Malaysia.

Both events will harness the hashtag #RoadToMalaysia in support this initiative, with the inaugural 8 Hours of Sepang expected to see at least 30 teams competing. It will be the qualifying round to the legendary Suzuka 8 Hours in 2020 as the second race on the 2019-2020 EWC calendar.

The Malaysian round of the WTCR will be the 2019 season finale with 26 full season entries from eight different car manufacturers and also will be the first night racing using Sepang’s new state-of-the-art floodlights system.
