The MotoGP Sepang Test starting on February 22nd will bring in teams, journalist, contractors and spectators to Malaysia. The Sepang International Circuit is hoping that all of those people will participate in a new charity campaign called “RM2 or More,” to help the flood victims in Malaysia.
The Sepang International Circuit will ask anyone who passes through the gates to give a minimum donation of RM2 (.5 euros, .67 USD) which will be channeled to the flood relief effort.
“As all of us know, the effects of the flood this time round were massive. It was the worst flood ever to hit Johor,” said Sepang Circuit CEO Dato Ahmad Razlan Ahmad Razali. “Anybody who passes through the gates during the Test including circuit staff, contractors and suppliers are encouraged to drop a minimum donation of RM2 which will be channelled to the flood relief funds.”
“We had a good turnout at the first Test earlier this month including foreign fans, and I am hoping for more fans to turn up to the circuit for the second Test. On top of catching their idols in action, they can also show their compassion for the flood victims.”
More than 30,000 people have been evacuated after the Johor State was affected by severe flooding.
