SIC Offers 50% Discount on Super GT Tickets


Sepang International Circuit (SIC), promoter of the Super GT International Series Malaysia 2008, has announced a 50 percent discount on the race tickets for the first 10,000 purchases with immediate effect.

“This offer is to kick off our promotions for the race, which will be held in June. The offer is limited to the first 5,000 purchases of the Main Grandstand tickets and another 5,000 for the K1 Grandstand. So, in total, it will be 10,000 special priced discounted tickets for the fans,” says SIC Press Officer Azhar Ghazali.

Azhar said the offer would be the first phase of the event’s promotion, which would include the Super GT nationwide tour featuring GT Queens from Japan and the official launch of the event in Kuala Lumpur in May.

To be held at Sepang Circuit from June 20 to 22, the 2008 Super GT International Series Malaysia is also Round 4 of the series, which would run in nine rounds. All the others rounds are held in Japan, making the Sepang round very special for the drivers and teams.

With the offer, prices of the Main Grandstand tickets have been reduced to RM75 against its normal price of RM150 for a full two-day package to enjoy the event. The first 5,000 purchases of tickets for K1 Grandstand would be only RM40 for entry on both Saturday (June 21) and Sunday (June 22) as compared to the normal price of RM80.

The 50 percent promotion tickets, however, are only available at the ticketing counter at SIC in Sepang and the SIC Ticketing Office at KL Sentral, Kuala Lumpur.

“Alternatively, the offer will end on May 15 if there are insufficient takers. But, I am very confident that these special priced tickets would be sold out fast. So, racing fans, don’t waste your time and get these tickets now,” Azhar added.

Immediately after all the offered 10,000 tickets are taken up, ticket purchasers would be entitled to a 10 percent discount if they buy them before May 31. As such, the tickets would be priced at RM135 and RM72 for the Main Grandstand and the K1 Grandstand respectively.

Entry for Friday on June 20 is free for seats at the Main Grandstand. Friday’s race programme would feature the practice session of the Super GT International Series drivers and programmes for the five support races –Asian Formula Renault Series, Asian GT Challenge, Aston Martin Cup,Formula V6 Asia and the Asian Touring Car Series.

According to Azhar, SIC was also offering a student package, which provides a 50 percent discount for purchases of the Main Grandstand tickets. This offer would stand until June 22.

“A family package is also being offered which provided Main Grandstand tickets for two adults and two children above seven years old at RM375 only. Entry for children below seven years old is free,” he said.
