Super GT Malaysia falls victim to virus

PETALING JAYA: It was supposed to be a grand return to Malaysia after a six-year absence but the Super GT Festival in Malaysia has also fallen victim to Covid-19 pandemic.

The Super GT Malaysia was to be the fifth round of the Japan Super GT Series taking place at Sepang International Circuit from July 16-19.

Race promoter Haro Sports and Entertainment made the decision after consulting with the relevant local authorities and GT Association Co Ltd due to the escalating Covid-19 situation.

Countries around the world have been taking drastic measures to prevent any further spread of the virus and a postponement is necessary to ensure the safety and well-being of all stakeholders – local and international fans, spectators, racing teams, event partners, event vendors and event personnel.

The race promoter also added they will continue to work with relevant authorities to closely monitor the pandemic and an alternative date will be announced as soon as the pandemic is no longer a threat.

All fans who have purchased tickets to the event can be assured that it will be valid for use.
