KUALA LUMPUR, 16 July 2019– The MotoGP fever is back in Malaysia as the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) readies for the 20th edition of the Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix from November 1-3 2019.

In conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the Grand Prix in Malaysia, the organisers Sepang International Circuit has gone to great lengths to ensure it will be a special and memorable event for fans and riders alike.

The event this year will also be special as it will coincide with the 70th anniversary of the MotoGP, which was born in January 1949 with events consisting the Isle of Man TT, Swiss Grand Prix, Dutch TT, Belgian Grand Prix, Ulster Grand Prix and the Grand Prix of Nations at Monza.

Sepang International Circuit Chairman, Tan Sri Azman Yahya said the historical moment is bound to be a special occasion.

“It will be such a great honour to witness the 20th anniversary of the Malaysian Grand Prix this year – and also the 70th anniversary of the MotoGP,” said Tan Sri Azman.

“For 20 years we have worked hard to ensure that the quality of the Malaysia Grand Prix are at the highest level and we have proven that with our success as the Best Grand Prix in 2012 and 2017 as awarded by the Grand Prix Commission.

This year will also mark the 10th year Shell becomes the title sponsor for the Malaysia Grand Prix.

“I’m grateful to have a loyal partner like Shell, who has been with us since 2009,” added Tan Sri Azman. “We have seen waves of success during the 10 years together and I thank you for that.”

As a build up to the celebration, SIC and Shell Malaysia announced at the Official Launch in The Square Publika today, special off-track activities for fans will be arranged. The campaign kicks off with SIC announcing the MalaysianGP Superfan Contest where two lucky winners will win a fully paid trip to watch the Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix with exclusive behind-the-scene experience.

“This is our 10th year as title sponsor for the Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix and we are excited to celebrate Shell’s long-standing involvement in world motorcycle racing with all motorsports’ enthusiasts through our collaboration with SIC,” shared Datuk Iain Lo, Chairman of Shell Malaysia.

“MotoGP is more than a race, it’s a platform for people from all walks of life to come together and celebrate their passion for motorsports. To fuel this passion and commemorate a decade of our commitment towards motorsports development in Malaysia, we will be having exciting activities to reward our customers who have been continuously supporting us all these years,” added Datuk Iain.

The Shell Biker Chop Chop promotion which kicked-off in June will run until August and it offers bikers the opportunity to purchase discounted Shell Hillstand MotoGP tickets as well as a chance to win exclusive Ducati merchandise and other limited-edition items. To qualify for the promotion, customers need to collect digital stamps via WeChat by collecting an accumulative of: two (2) Lubricant stamps by purchasing Shell Advance AX5, AX7 or Ultra and three (3) Fuel stamps by fueling RM6 worth of Shell fuels in a single receipt.

Another highlight this year will an exciting addition to the live viewing for the upcoming MotoGP races, where fans can gather and follow the races before the upcoming Malaysian round. For the first time, Shell has decided to bring one of its live viewing sessions outside Klang Valley, to Kuantan, Pahang, with the aim to extend the MotoGP excitement to a larger group of fans. Fans can learn more of these viewings at Shell’s social media pages.

This year, Shell is back with its Shell Hillstand, an exclusive viewing area at the circuit which provides motorsports enthusiasts an opportunity to enjoy a differentiated experience while watching the race. In the past, the hillstand offered a series of activities comprising a display of Ducati motorcycles, a wide-range of family-friendly activities and a variety of food and beverages, inclusive of Shell’s popular deli2go freshly-baked pastries and Costa Coffee. The company is looking to do all of this and more this year, to provide a bigger and better Shell Malaysia MotoGP experience for its customers.

Race week will start with the pre-event; a friendly football match between Team SIC All Stars showcasing talented MotoGP riders against Team Media FC at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil. The match will be made open for fans to come and support the MotoGP riders in action.

The ever-popular riders’ autograph session and riders fan forum will take place at the Sepang International Circuit on November 1 (Friday) and 2 (Saturday) where fans can get up close and personal with their favorite riders like Marc Marquez, Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo and also our Malaysian rider Hafizh Syahrin Abdullah and more.

The much awaited Mega MotoGP Carnival also provides an array of products and promotions with over 90 brands participating this year. The carnival has become an event of its own where two-wheels fans look forward to each year to get their hands on special merchandise items including new motorcycles to take home.

The popular #KamiGearKe7 campaign will be back this year as a way for fans to show their support towards Malaysian riders and team challenging for honours at their home race. It follows the concept of fans as the 12th man on the pitch on football matches to support their teams, the #KamiGearKe7 will provide the avenue for fans to show the support for Malaysian competing in the Malaysian Grand Prix.

“The hype will be much bigger this year as we have a Malaysian team racing in three different categories of the championship,” added Tan Sri Azman.

“The Petronas Yamaha Sepang Racing Team just bared their fangs when Fabio Quartararo finished second at the Catalunya Grand Prix and with Hafizh Syahrin and Khairul on the grid, Malaysians will have more to cheer for.

“It will also be something of a spectacle for the Indonesian fans out there as they will get to see their star Dimas Ekky Pratama racing in the Malaysian round in his first full season as a Moto2 rider. I’m sure many of them are eager to see what Dimas can do after stints in 2017 and 2018.”

Tickets for the Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix was launched in October 2018 and is selling fast. “This year, though tickets remain at the same price for the MalaysianGP, there is an addition of 25% entertainment tax imposed by the state government. However, the event remains to be a much awaited one and tickets are selling fast. I encouraged all fans to start getting theirs now before it sells out”

“To ensure a comfortable and convenient experience for the fans, works has also started to fix the roofing of the Main Grandstand and better fittings for the public toilets. We are excited to see the new and improved roof during the race this year” Tan Sri Azman added.

Kita semakin menghampiri penghujung musim MotoGP 2017, dan pusingan kedua terakhir iaitu Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix sudah pasti telah memberikan keseronokan yang tidak terhingga kepada mereka yang menghadirinya. Setelah mendapat status sebagai salah sebuah litar yang paling mencabar dalam kalendar MotoGP, Litar Antarabangsa Sepang sentiasa bersedia untuk memberi cabaran tambahan dengan cuaca yang tidak menentu.



  • Franco Morbidelli (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) telah memenangi takhta Juara Dunia Moto2 2017 selepas Thomas Luthi diisytiharkan tidak cergas akibat keretakan pada buku lalinya.
  • Penunggang bagi pasukan KTM Red Bull, Miguel Oliveira dan Brad Binder sekali lagi meraikan penamat satu-dua di atas dengan Morbidelli melengkapkan tempat terakhir di atas podium.
  • Morbidelli dan Luthi bakal berpindah ke MotoGP pada musim akan datang, menjadi teman sepasukan di pasukan Marc VDS.


Franco Morbidelli (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) has won the 2017 Moto2 World Champion after Thomas Luthi was declared unfit due to a fractured ankle.

Red Bull KTM riders Miguel Oliveira and Brad Binder celebrated yet another one-two finish with Morbidelli completing the final podium spot.

Morbidelli and Luthi will graduate to MotoGP next season in the same Marc VDS team.

The scene could not have been more dramatic during the Shell Malaysia MotoGP round at the Sepang International Circuit. All weekend, the Moto2 riders have gone through severe heat to sudden bursts of rain to keep them on their toes. None more so than the two riders who were fighting for the 2017 Moto2 championship, Franco Morbidelli (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) and Thomas Luthi (CarXpert Interwetten). (more…)

As we head closer to the end of the 2017 MotoGP season, the penultimate round that is the Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix is sure to bring in a lot of excitement for all those who attend. Having gained status as one of the most challenging circuits in the calendar, the Sepang International Circuit is always ready to throw one heck of a curve ball with the unpredictable weather.

The race is made even more exciting with the fact that more often than not, a champion emerges in the final flyaway race. Take last year for example when the current Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider Johann Zarco won his second Moto2 championship before graduating to MotoGP for 2017.

From the moment you arrive at the track’s parking area, the activities have already begun. Shell Advance has amazingly organised a special ride-through service for motorcycle owners. Those who came with their beloved bikes can roll in, buy some Shell Advance engine oils and get a free service (plus oil filter), refreshments, dedicated parking space and even Hillstand tickets! Not a bad way to start the day off, right?

To make things more exciting, the Mall Area is filled up to the brim with so many booths and gigantic marquees that you’ll be spoilt for choice in terms of what activities you want to participate, freebies to take home and the ever popular meet and greet sessions with your beloved riders.

During the special weekends, all sorts of offers are up for grabs. One of the best examples would be the HJC Helmet Malaysia booth where you can get premium helmets at slashed prices right before your very eyes.

Weather too hot to handle? There’s another way on how you can enjoy the races without missing any of the action. Head over to the Red Bull marquee where it is without a doubt one of the coolest (literally and figuratively) ways to watch the race in comfort. Get your drinks ready and watch the giant screens set up for you to support your favourite riders!

No motorcycle extravaganza can be complete without some premium bikes being displayed. There are so many motorcycle manufacturers taking part that they themselves are already their own shows! It’s already an experience to visit all the booths before entering the grandstands.

The brands that are taking part in the races proudly displayed their prized and rare bikes which you only get to see on the Internet or TV. Not at the Malaysian MotoGP round 2017, folks. Take KTM for example where the main attraction is a lovely KTM RC16 replica race machine.

Check out the highlights of the KTM Malaysia booth by clicking HERE.

Fancy something a bit more Japanese? Try going to the Boon Siew Honda booth and check out the amazing Honda RC213V being displayed together with their MotoGP replica bike which is placed amongst other race and road machines. So, to take a closer look and of course, lots and lots of photos.

If you’re one of the lucky one to get the opportunity to visit any of the paddocks, you’ll get to see up close and personal on how the teams work and get things prepared at the highest level of racing. No one does it better than these folks.

We were fortunate enough to be able to visit the IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia and also Team SUZUKI ECSTAR to witness the behind-the-scenes action and harmony between riders and other team members.

Want to spend some money on special merchandises? The Petronas booth for example took it up another notch with a few great performances from famous artists such as Altimet. Fans were entertained with the best of the best while purchasing top of the line merchandises, getting signatures from our Moto2 star rider Hafizh Syahrin and even a very unique ‘multiple angle’ photo booth.

At the end of the day, it’s all about the races. While Moto3 has already found their champion for 2017 that is Joan Mir of Leopard Racing (CLICK HERE to read the story), the Moto2 and MotoGP crowns are still up for grabs. The battles are now left between Franco Morbidelli EG (0,0 Marc VDS) and Tom Luthi (CarXpert Interwetten) in Moto2 and Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) and Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) in MotoGP.

Will there be a champion at the end of Sunday? Come early because things are about to blow up. Moto3 will start at 12pm followed by Moto2 at 1.20pm and MotoGP at 3pm (local times). Don’t feel too bad if your riders don’t make it to the podium because all the booths prepped at the Mall Area are always ready to cheer you right back up before heading back home.
