Autobacs SuperGT 2010 returns to Sepang

Japan's biggest and hottest racing series, The Autobacs Super GT International Series, will be making a return for Round 4 in the racing calendar, to Sepang International Circuit from 18-20 June 2010.

The 2010 Super GT International Series will mark the 10th anniversary of the event being held at the circuit. The race series has come a long way since it was first held at the circuit in June 2000.

"Malaysia is the only country to host the Super GT outside of Japan. When it first came to Malaysia, it was purely a Japanese race series, it was only followed by Japanese race fans and had Japanese sponsors", Razlan Razali, CEO of Sepang International Circuit.

"Now we have a significant number of Super GT followers in Malaysia, and there are many non-Japanese drivers taking part in this race. We also have two Malaysian corporations being part of the two top teams in Super GT, namely Mutiara Motors in GT300 and Petronas TOMS in the GT500 Series.", he added.

The Super GT International Race Series not only is recognised to be held at renowned Japanese tracks such as the Twin Ring Motegi Circuit, The Fuji Speedway and the Suzuka Circuit, it is also long being known among motorsports fans as a powerful combination of dazzling mean machines and their beauty queens.

This year's Super GT International Series would also be featuring support races by the all-new GT4 Asia Cup, the GT3 Asia Series, Yaris/Vios Experience Race in Sepang as well as the environmentally-friendly Scirocco Cup.

In conjunction to the racing event, SIC will be organising the children's pit walkabout on Saturday, 19 June 2010 at 1730hrs. The already eventful Super GT International Series being held at Sepang will also feature the ever exciting Circuit Safari, where fans will be able to get a closer feel and look at the race as they are transported via a low-loader bus doing the laps around the track during the Super GT practice session.

SIC will also be organising a contest where fans will be able to win themselves a ride in the Super GT Official Safety Car, the Nissan GTR-R35, pit passes and circuit safari rides. To qualify, they will have to purchase a minimum of two tickets, answer three simple questions and complete a slogan.

There will also be a charity car wash session at the circuit during the race weekend.
