SIC’s F1 Roadshow Heads To Gurney Plaza This Weekend! (7th – 10th March 2013)

For all those who reside in Penang, Kedah and Perlis, do take note, because there’s a particular Proton Satria Neo R3 that could have your name on it should you manage to win it at the next F1 roadshow at the GP Autoshow 2013 located in Penang’s Gurney Plaza, from today till Sunday, 10th March 2013 as 10 PETRONAS F1 race cars are now placed on showcase.

During the 4-day event, the Sepang International Circuit’s (SIC) ticketing booth will be opened from 10am – 10pm, specifically located at the New Wing area of Gurney Plaza where racing simulators have been setup for ticket purchases to take part in the “Race of Champions” where the top 10 finalists with the fastest lap times will converge for a final showdown at SIC on the 23rd March 2013 to see who will be the new owner of the R3.

Apart from tickets being sold, SIC’s Official Merchandise will also be made available for purchase while you ogle at the 15 years of historic F1 racing cars on display, according to Chief Executive Officer of SIC, Dato’ Razlan Razali, who also added that last weekend saw a massive turnout down south in Johor Bahru.

Currently, SIC is also offering a special price of RM203 for Main Grandstand two-day package tickets to ‘Kad Diskaun Siswa 1Malaysia’, ’Kad Pesara Tentera’, ‘Kad Orang Kurang Upaya’, ‘Kad Skuad Pengguna’ and the ‘1Malaysia Privilege Card’ holders at the roadshow.
