TWO 30-footer lorries adorned with Super GT colours with specially brought in GT Queens Aki Oguchi and Momoyo Aihara grabbed the attention of onlookers at Hotel Equatorial Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday.
The Super GT babes in sexy red tops with white hot pants are in town to promote the 2007 Super GT International Series Malaysia.
While the GT babes use one lorry as a stage for performances, the other vehicle has a racing simulator machine and a sales and ticketing kiosk.
Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said who launched the Super GT International Series Malaysia said the branding of the Super GT International Series, which had created a relatively large following, was an important calendar event for the Sepang International Circuit (SIC).
“We are proud that the Japan GT Association has chosen Sepang as its first venue outside of Japan and I am told that there are plans to bring it to Australia and China also.
“This year being Visit Malaysia Year, the Government and SIC will step up efforts to ensure the event is exciting,'' she said.
It has been held in Malaysia since 2000.
Azalina said the Motorsports Commission of Malaysia (MCM) had been established to take the Malaysian motor sports industry to a higher plane and ensure Malaysia became a hub for motor sports in the region.
“I believe this is the first time such a commission has been set up anywhere in the world and together with the newly formed Motorsports Association of Malaysia (MAM), I believe we will have many more events and programmes to boost the motor sports industry further,” she said.
Also present at the event was SIC chairman Datuk Mokhzani Mahathir, Japan GT Association (GTA) chairman Maasaki Bando and MCM chief operating officer Nordin Yasin.
Tickets for the Super GT are priced at RM30 and can be purchased via the Internet at www.malaysiangp.com.my or by calling the ticket hotline at 03-8778 2222.
Fans can also purchase pit-walkabout passes as well as Circuit Safari passes.
