MotoGP riders support Sepang Circuit fundraising

MotoGP riders support Sepang Circuit fundraising

The 17 premier class riders in Malaysia for the official Test showed their support for the Sepang International Circuit’s fundraising efforts for flood victims.

The MotoGP riders and members of their teams present at the Sepang International Circuit for the current Test showed their full support on Wednesday for the charity fundraising campaign organised by the venue.

For the duration of the Test so far and until its conclusion on Thursday, SIC has been encouraging all those attending the circuit to contribute a small donation to help raise funds for the victims of the recent floods in Malaysia.

“On behalf of Sepang International Circuit, I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to all the MotoGP riders and team members for supporting our ‘RM2 or More’ Campaign for Malaysia Flood Relief Fund,” said SIC CEO Dato Ahmad Razlan Ahmad Razali, who posed alongside the riders for a photo on the starting grid on Wednesday morning.

“Having all of them together for a group photograph with each and every member of the competing teams at the starting grid today to support the programme was indeed a proud moment for us all at SIC. It will definitely inspire us to do even more to help the less fortunate through our events. The response has been very good and I’m definitely touched by everybody’s generosity. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Razlan also added that SIC would be looking into a larger scale corporate social responsibility programme for the 2011 GP, when MotoGP returns to the circuit in late October.
