A community of Ferrari owners will hold a cross-country tour from Singapore to Malaysia from May 28th to June 1st, 2015. Titled the Ferrari Southeast Asia Grand Tour 2015 (FSEA Grand Tour 2015), it will consist of around 100 Prancing Horse cars of different models joining the tour to strengthen the relationships between Ferrari owners in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia.
Commenting on the FSEA Grand Tour 2015, Managing Director of Ferrari Far East, Dieter Knechtel said, “Ferrari cars are a reflection of great passion and emotion. Those who are attracted to own a Ferrari are individuals who have the courage to dream with a strong dedication, spirit, and love to make it come true. We are happy to know that Ferrari owners in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia have and share the same passion towards Ferrari. The three countries play important roles for Ferrari and because of this, we expect this milestone event to further strengthen the relations between Ferrari owners in Southeast Asia.”
The President of Ferrari Owners Club (FOC) Indonesia, Ahmad Saroni, said, “Every activity in this FSEA Grand Tour is arranged to intensify togetherness and broaden driving insights of the members. This event is more than just a meet and greet. Through this, Ferrari owners in Indonesia can strengthen their friendship with Ferrari owners in Singapore and Malaysia, and also feel the experience of driving through alluring roads in both countries.”
Throughout the tour, the participating members will have the opportunity to experience Ferrari’s performance on roads with interesting sites and challenges, such as Orchard Road & Marina Bay Sands that are icons of Singapore, Genting Highland & Berjaya Hills in Malaysia that will be a feast for the eyes with their breathtaking beauty and nature.
Another interesting highlight is the track day at Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia. This circuit is one of the venues for the Formula One Grand Prix and participants will be given an opportunity to undergo training in driving with experts from the Corso Pilota program. Members of Ferrari Owners Club can also improve their driving skills on the 5,542 km circuit as if they are professional race car drivers.
Similar to other FOC events, there will be an element of charity to help others within the tour agenda. On this occasion, tour members will support the Special Olympics to help children with special needs. “Through this event, we want to spread the spirit to dream and to develop a strong dedication to make that dream come true for these children. With the same belief and passion that we share, it will make the event a lot more meaninful and memorable,” said President of FOC Malaysia, Dato’ Tan Su Cheng.
Elaine Lim-Chan, President of FOC Singapore, who is the first Ferrari Owners Club female president, also commented, “Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia are three countries that are not only geographically connected, but also have close ties in friendship, especially among Ferrari owners. I hope the bond of Ferrari Owners Club members in these three countries can inspire owners from other regions to mutually strengthen the friendship.”
The exhilarating tour will close with a celebratory FSEA Rally Finale Dinner at the iconic Clifford Pier of Fullerton Bay Hotel, Singapore. With their love for driving refuelled and the bonds of friendship strengthened, it is without doubt that Ferrari owners, from Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia, will be looking forward to the next gathering of love, passion and Prancing Horse cars.
