After a six-year absence, SUPER GT racing makes an explosive return to Malaysia from 16-19 July 2020 at Sepang Circuit, setting the stage for the Series and world’s first ever GT night race, and the debut of an-all Malaysian team for the very first time. SUPER GT Malaysia Festival 2020 is one of two races outside of Japan and will be round 5 of the 2020 Autobacs SUPER GT Series.
Haro Sports & Entertainment is the rights holder and promoter for SUPER GT Malaysia Festival 2020 and has also been appointed by GT Association Ltd (GTA) as the rights holders for SUPER GT content for all countries outside of Japan and Thailand.
“With the GTA fully in agreement, Malaysia now has what is essentially the world’s only GT night race. Motorsports fans and gear heads now have something to look forward to every year, and we are bringing the race back with a bang!”
Malaysia had hosted the first overseas race of the All-Japan Grand Touring Championship with two exhibition races in 2000 and 2001, before Malaysia was officially included as a full-fledged championship round in 2002. Malaysia continued to play host to the Series’ overseas rounds until 2013.
“SUPER GT Malaysia Festival 2020 also gave us an opportunity to put together a more wholesome event package catering to fans and families. It is so much more than just racing, it is a lifestyle! It is also a major event for Visit Malaysia 2020, and we are targeting approximately 80,000 spectators over the four-day race weekend.”
Two Malaysian drivers, Jazeman Jaafar and Dato’ Adrian da Silva, will pair up in a Porsche GT3 R to compete in the GT300 Class as one of two Malaysian wildcard entries at SUPER GT Malaysia Festival 2020.
