We’ve all seen the usual MotoGP race weekend packages offered by travel companies that include flights, accommodation and a grandstand ticket. Now, thanks to Mechmoto Racing, MotoGP fans have the chance to feel what it’s like to be a team member with their Ultimate GP Racing Experience.

Say goodbye to the standard grandstand pass and say hello to the MotoGP pit wall, team garage and hospitality as you join a MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 team for a whole race weekend.

Indy Sam and Justin McLachlan from Mechmoto Racing in Australia have utilised their MotoGP contacts to offer race fans an ultimate GP experience that is unrivalled.

Mechmoto is a leading motorcycle servicing business based in Queensland Australia that brings MotoGP expertise to the roads. Co-Founder Indy Sam has had a long and illustrious two-wheel career having worked in MotoGP, World Superbike Championship, and the Australian Superbike Championship since the early 2000’s as a mechanic.

With Indy’s experience in these leading motorcycle racing series, not only has he been able to bring that mechanical experience to road bikes in the land down under, but he’s been able to work with MotoGP teams to offer race weekend experiences like no other. “We are race enthusiasts,” says Indy. “And we know what an awesome race weekend experience would be for enthusiasts like us. So with my contacts in MotoGP we can offer an experience that takes the fans right into the heart of the team to feel the excitement and drama up close and personal.”

Limited to only four guests per MotoGP round, the guests will be immersed in unparalleled access with their own personalised official MotoGP paddock pass and personally guided by Indy himself as they experience a race start from the pit wall, pit lane walks, team garage visits, meeting riders, dining in team hospitality, and even joining the team parties. A team may even allow guests to join a debrief.

Currently there are two teams who are part of the Race event package – LCR Honda MotoGP and Gas Gas Aspar Moto2 & Moto3 – discussions are underway to bring in more teams though guests will meet many other teams unofficially during the event.

As a special introduction to Asia based MotoGP fans, Mechmoto Racing is offering over 20% ($4,000) off the package price. More information can be found at

Seramai 180 penunggang motosikal Yamaha LC135 dengan nombor plat pendaftaran 1010 mengadakan konvoi seluruh negara dan juga beberapa negara Asia bagi memperkenalkan jentera Yamaha itu yang hanya dikeluarkan dan dijual di Malaysia.

Pengarah Urusan Kumpulan Hong Leong Industries, Datuk Dr. Jim Khor berkata, konvoi Kelab Keluarga Besar Yamaha LC1010 itu memulakan perjalanan secara berperingkat bermula Sabtu. 

“Apa yang uniknya, Yamaha LC135 berwarna merah ini hanya dikeluarkan untuk dijual di Malaysia sahaja. Tiada di negara Asia seperti Indonesia, Jepun, Vietnam dan Thailand seperti mana kebiasaan pasaran Yamaha.

“Selain itu, ia juga tertera nombor plat khas 1010 yang bermaksud “Perfect” atau sempurna bagi fengshui Cina. 

“Ketika ini, motosikal dengan nombor plat 1010 itu hanya ada sebanyak 180 buah sahaja di Malaysia dan pembeli perlu menunggu untuk menguruskan tempahan khas nombor plat ini sebelum memiliki motosikal mereka. Sebab itu kita katakan kelab ini unik,” katanya.
