This is the 20th year of the race series and the 13th consecutive year that one round is to be held in Malaysia. For event organiser JPM Motorsports, it is their 3rd year running the event since they won the right to hold the event back in 2011.

“We’re gunning for a phenomenal race weekend with lots of action and activities on as well as off the track. We’re working on a whole host of activities and attractions and all i can say is that it’s going to be exciting for everyone, race fans or otherwise,” said JPM Motorsport Managing Director T.J. Chin.

He also said that JPM Motorsport has come up with the theme of having a 5-Star SUPER GT event featuring mainly the race itself, the Affin Bank Motorshow, a Japan Town (a new segment) by Sachi, the Biggest Superbike Gathering (as opposed to the biggest supercar gathering last year), and a Dash Berlin Rave Party.

The new Japan Town segment, is an attempt to make the audience feel like they are watching a Japanese Racing event in Japan during summer. It is said to feature a typical street scene with buildings facade exuding a ‘Japanese’ ambiance.

With last year’s event making it into the Malaysian Book of Records with the biggest supercar gathering, this year’s aim is to also get into the books again but with the Biggest and Noisiest Super Bike Gathering on the SIC tracks.

The final part of this 5-Star event, is the rave party set to take place on Saturday night after the qualifying session just before the main race on Sunday. The party headlines the Dash Berlin ‘Music Is Life’ World Tour 2013, touted as one of the most anticipated party event of the year organised by Global Sound Music and JPM Music.
