The Supercar For Charity event is happening on Sunday this weekend, and Deanna Yusof has thrown in something interesting for visitors on the day. She has challenged any Malaysian driver – male or female, to beat her in a slalom competition at the event. The slalom challenge will be organized by Sepang International Drive and Race Academy (SIDRA) and a special course would be conducted by the academy race instructors at a fee of RM1,000 using the Porsche Cayman S. This will be a chance for you to drive a race tuned Porsche Cayman S yourself under the guidance of a professional trainer, instead of driven in a taxi ride around Sepang.
The Supercar For Charity event will also be attended by the DYMM Seri Paduka YDP Agong. Other guest drivers include Alex Yoong, Tommy Lee (three times Millennium Merdeka Endurance race champion), and Karamjit Singh (the World Production Car Rally Champion and six times Asia Pacific Rally Champion). Deanna will also be one of the guest drivers at the event.
For the taxi ride, there are four packages available:
- Single tickets – Class 3 -RM300/pax, Class 2 -RM500/pax and Class 1-RM1,000/pax
- Group – 5 ride tickets on Class 3 supercars, advertising space (small) on 10 supercars and photo session – RM10,000
- Corporate – 5 ride tickets on Class 2 supercars, advertising space (medium) on 10 supercars, advertising (logo) on show cars back-drop and photo sessions – RM20,000
- Platinum – 5 ride tickets on Class 1 Supercars, advertising banner on supercars (large), Corporate logo included in the photo back-drop – RM50,000
The taxi ride consists of 1 outlap, 1 flying lap, and 1 inlap. These supercars include a fleet of Porsches, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Lotus Esprit V8s, Aston Martins, and also a Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG and new BMW M6. I’m not sure which fall into which classes though, but you can probably find out on the event day itself. The event begins at 2pm and ends at 7pm. The charity rids are from 2pm to 4pm and 5pm to 6pm. 4pm to 4:45pm is reserved for premium rides, which I assume are the Class 1 supercars. From 6pm to 7pm there will be an open track time for the supercar owners.
100% of the proceeds from this event will benefit flood victims which will be monitored and disbursed by Force of Nature Aid Foundation to the Rotary & Lion Club and/or other local NGOs and foundations in aid of the flood victims.
