Motorcycling fans are being presented with a glorious offer to enjoy the world’s two biggest events – the eni FIM Superbike World Championship (SBK) and the MotoGP World Championship at Sepang International Circuit (SIC) in a two-in-1 combo package that provide savings up to RM100.
The offer to catch the inaugural SBK for Sepang Round in June and the 24th edition of the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix in October, however, will only be for a limited period of 30 days from April 16 to May 15.
“These are the two biggest motorcycling events in the world that no motor racing fan will want to miss. SBK is coming to Sepang for the first time and our MotoGP race is always getting more and more exciting by the year,” says SIC Chief Executive Officer Datuk Razlan Razali.
The eni FIM Superbike World Championship Malaysian Round, which will be the one and only round in Asia will also feature the Supersport World Championship, which will be held from June 6 to 8 as Round 6 of the World Series. While the 2014 Shell Advance Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix, which will feature four Malaysian riders amongst the international field, will be held from October 24 to 26.
Under the combo offer, fans can purchase seats at the Main Grandstand North, which faces the front straight of the 5,548-meter track for RM230 only.
Other Main Grandstand combo tickets including all seats at the Tower and the South side are priced at RM190.
“For the first time this year in conjunction with the 24th edition of the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix, we have also created a special seating zone at the K1 Grandstand called VR46 Tribune in honour of the legendary Valentino Rossi. The VR46 Tribune tickets will entitle ticket buyers to VR46 official merchandise with Rossi’s signature at a price of RM160.
But fans are urged to not miss out on the combo package for VR46 Tribune and K1 Grandstand for SBK with superb viewing of Turns 5, 6, 7 and 8 as well as the entry of the main straight at only RM180.
For single tickets at the WSBK, Main Grandstand North seats are priced at RM130 for tickets only while other Main Grandstand tickets are priced at RM110. Fans can also enjoy other grandstand and hillstand tickets from as low as RM30 for a full three-day entry.
Apart from the championship categories, both events would feature a round of the Malaysian Super Series (MSS) bike championship as the support races, featuring some of the best Malaysian biking talents as well as top riders in the region including from Australia. The MSS offers identical racing categories – 1000cc Superbike, 1000cc Superstock and the 600cc Supersport category.
Both the WSBK and MotoGP ran their races last weekend with Kawasaki Racing Team’s Tom Sykes and Loris Baz gave the team a 1-2 finish in both races at Motorland Aragon in Spain in the second round of the World Series. In MotoGP, defending champion Marc Marquez of Repsol Honda scored his second victory of the season in Austin, United States to take a firm control of the championship.
Fans of two-wheel motorsport racing are encouraged to grab the tickets now while it is being offered at a combo price as they will also be the first to get the tickets for this inaugural SBK event in Asia.
