The organizers at the Sepang Circuit in Malaysia decided to hold a fundraiser for flood victims during the MotoGP testing session. The 17 premier class riders, along with their teams, showed their full support today during the Sepang test.
“On behalf of the Sepang International Circuit, I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to all the MotoGP riders and team members for supporting our ‘RM2 or More’ Campaign for Malaysia Flood Relief Fund,” said SIC CEO Dato Ahmad Razlan Ahmad Razali.
The “RM2 or More Campaign” started yesterday at the beginning of the MotoGP Sepang test, and will continue until the MotoGP riders leave on Thursday. The Sepang International Circuit is asking for small donations from riders, teams, sponsors, manufacturers, and fans.
The Sepang International Circuit will also step up their fund raising efforts when the MotoGP returns for an official race in October.
“Having all of them together for a group photograph with each and every member of the competing teams at the starting grid today to support the programme was indeed a proud moment for us all at SIC,” Razali continued. “It will definitely inspire us to do even more to help the less fortunate through our events. The response has been very good and I’m definitely touched by everybody’s generosity. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
