Entering its 20th edition is the 2019 Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix at Sepang International Circuit (SIC). The world’s premier motorcycle championship will be held from November 1st to 3rd, 2019 and was officially launched in Publika, Kuala Lumpur.

Coinciding with the 70th anniversary of MotoGP with Shell entering its tenth year as title sponsor, SIC intends to make this year’s race a memorable event. Events commemorating the occasion will start with the MalaysianGP Superfan Contest where two lucky winners will win a fully paid trip to watch the MotoGP.

“MotoGP is more than a race, it’s a platform for people from all walks of life to come together and celebrate their passion for motorsports. To fuel this passion and commemorate a decade of our commitment towards motorsports development in Malaysia, we will be having exciting activities to reward our customers who have been continuously supporting us all these years,” said Datuk Iain Lo, chairman of Shell Malaysia.

Events also include the Shell Biker Chop Chop promotion where fans can purchase discounted Hillstand tickets by collecting stamps from the purchase of either Shell fuel or lubricants. There will also be a live viewing of MotoGP in Kuantan by Shell, a first for outstation fans.

“The hype will be much bigger this year as we have a Malaysian team racing in three different categories of the championship,” added Tan Sri Azman Yahya, chairman of SIC. “To ensure a comfortable and convenient experience for the fans, works has also started to fix the roofing of the Main Grandstand and better fittings for the public toilets. We are excited to see the new and improved roof during the race this year,” Azman added.
