PETALING JAYA: Sepang International Circuit (SIC) and Kuala Lumpur City Hall are organising an F1 walk-hunt in conjunction with the launch of the 2003 Petronas Malaysian F1 Grand Prix campaign at the Dataran Merdeka on Saturday.
As prizes will include tickets for the GP, the winners will find themselves cheering their favourite drivers and teams with thousands of other racing fans at the event, which takes place on March 21-23.
Participants for the walk-hunt will be flagged off from Dataran Merdeka at 8am and questions will be based on the F1 World Championships and Kuala Lumpur as an international tourist destination.
SIC press officer Azhar Ghazali said: “Tulips will be distributed to participants on Saturday morning and they will cover areas like Central Market, Lake Garden, National Mosque, the Railway Station and some parts of the city centre.
“Some hotels in the Klang Valley and corporate companies have already indicated interest to send their teams. We would like members of the public to join in as well. Entry for the competition is free.”
Entries are limited to 50 teams of four members each and will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.
The public can call 03-85262048 to register or send particulars to email@example.com
Besides the walk-hunt, members of the public can also join in a fancy dress competition, games quiz and telematch.
Malaysia are hosting the second round of the World F1 Championships. The season's opener will be held in Melbourne on March 9.
