The 23rd edition of the longest-running international motorsports event, Petronas Grand Prix of Malaysia happening on the 21 – 23 October was officially launched at the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas by the Minister of Youth and Sports (KBS), Yang Berhormat Dato’ Seri Ahmad Faizal bin Dato’ Azumu yesterday.

The 23rd edition of the Malaysian Grand Prix marks Petronas’ debut as title sponsor having reached an agreement with MotoGPTM rights holder, Dorna Sports earlier this year.

The Sepang International Circuit (SIC) also announced Malaysian rider, Syarifuddin Azman (Damok), has been granted a wildcard entry in the Moto3TM World Championship. The 21-year-old is currently ranked second in the FIM JuniorGPTM championship standings.

Chief Executive Officer of SIC, Azhan Shafriman Hanif said, “This year marks the first year of Petronas as the Title Sponsor for the Grand Prix. SIC is all set to #WelcomeHome all the local and international motorsports fans to Sepang after two years hiatus due to COVID-19 pandemic and we will ensure the quality of Malaysia Grand Prix is at the highest level.”

“With no Malaysian riders competing full season in the Championship, I believe Damok will be the pull factor for Malaysians to cheer fellow Malaysian on the grid,” added Shafriman.

Special off-track activities for fans starts with the pre-event on Wednesday race week such as Public Cooking Contest showcasing talented MotoGPTM riders in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. 

The ever-popular race weekend activities like the Public Pit Lane Walk and Riders’ Autograph Session will take place on 21 October 2022 where fans can get up close and personal with their favourite riders.

Fans can anticipate getting their hands on special merchandise items to take home at the much-awaited Mega MotoGPTM Carnival with over 100 renowned brands and the Night Track Tour experience on Friday, 21 October to Saturday, 22 October 2022 is back on sale.

This year, SIC is proud to be FIRST Grand Prix to present a new lifestyle experience and a curated festival feel that combines local food and culture, outdoor, live music, art installations and unique activations under one roof. 

The interesting catch for this year is the #MalaysianGP2022 Mega Lucky Draw contest where two lucky winners will win Yamaha NVX and Y15ZR bikes with SIC limited-edition livery worth RM22,000.
