KIC Oil & Gas have joined forces with PTT International Trading to form a formidable team — KIC-PTT Three Crowns Racing Team — for the Merdeka Millennium Endurance Race at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) this weekend.
The three-man team comprising Thailand’s Sontaya Kunplome, Nattavude Charo-ensukhawatana and Kirakiat Yenmanoj will lead the challenge in the gruelling 12-hour race.
KIC Oil & Gas chairman Abdul Rashid Isa said the partnership was an effort to foster better relationship between Malaysia and Thailand.
“The drivers come with excellent track records. The drivers have won several honours in the Pan Asian Touring and Supercar championships,” he said.
“We hope to see them give a good account in the MME as well.
“It will be good if the team can get a good placing in the championships,’’ said Abdul Rashid during a dinner to announce the team members.
Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Wee Jeck Seng was also present at the dinner.
Sontaya said they were well prepared for the challenge in the MME.
“We are grateful to be given the chance to take part in the MME. We are confident of a good outing,’’ said Sontaya.
