Kuala Lumpur, 22 September 2017 – With the last Malaysian Formula One race just around the corner, motorsports enthusiasts and the public are invited to attend the 2017 Formula 1 PETRONAS Malaysia Grand Prix Showcase at the Concourse and Esplanade area, Suria KLCC.
The showcase which runs from 23rd September to 1st October aims to pay homage to Malaysians who have proven to be some of the sport’s most passionate supporters, and to celebrate PETRONAS’ key achievements and milestones in Formula One.
Some of the highlights planned throughout this showcase include the grid girl fashion show by local designer, Rizman Ruzaini, Raceroom Racing Experience, pit-stop challenge, and live performances by local artistes. There will also be fun activities and contests suitable for all ages.
The much awaited meet-the-fan session will top off the experience, giving Malaysians the chance to meet both Mercedes AMG PETRONAS Motorsport drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas on 27th September at 6 pm.
Over the race weekend there will be a live-viewing of the PETRONAS Malaysia Grand Prix from the Sepang International Circuit.
Fans can also get their hands on exclusive PETRONAS Malaysia Grand Prix merchandise from the showcase, as well as at PETRONAS’ booth at the Sepang International Circuit.
Meanwhile at Sepang, look out for the Mercedes F1 W08 EQ Power+ car which features a unique livery – carrying the message, ‘Thank You Malaysia’. The hashtag and campaign will run throughout the week as PETRONAS and Mercedes AMG PETRONAS Motorsport celebrate Malaysia’s milestones in hosting Formula One for the past 18 years.
