Malaysia Drive 2009
This year’s Malaysia Drive [30th April (Thursday) to 5th May (Tuesday)] is fast approaching! If you still have not signed up for this event, this is your last chance before next week’s deadline!! [However, please take note that the dates of the Drive have been pushed back one week. It has now been rescheduled to take place between 8th May (Friday) and 13th May (Wednesday). The change aims to avoid the public holidays in Malaysia during the 2 May weekend which makes booking hotel rooms difficult, not to mention the exorbitant room rates].
Like all previous events, your cars will be shipped directly to Malaysia, saving both transportation time and cost. Participating members will fly to Kuala Lumpur on 8th May where you will pick up your cars and then, the Drive will begin immediately. You will then spend five days savoring delicious food, relaxing in luxurious resorts, driving through winding yet picturesque back roads, and finally, spending a full day on 12th May conquering the challenging Sepang F1 Circuit before flying back to Hong Kong. If one day drive on the fabulous Sepang F1 Circuit is simply not enough for you, then you may wish to spend an extra day on the Circuit for an additional fee.
The itinerary for the Drive is still being finalized and will be available shortly. The fees for the Drive will be HK$48,000 (including shipping cost for your car, air ticket for one person, hotel accommodation, licence fee, insurance, road tolls, track fee and mechanical support on track but excluding sea freight insurance and meals). The fee for the extra day at the Sepang Circuit will be HK$5,300 per car (including track fee, mechanical support and one extra night of hotel accommodation). Alternatively, if you do not wish to stay an extra day in Kuala Lumpur, you could leave the track slightly earlier (at either 3:30 p.m. or 3:45 p.m.); you should still be able to catch the 17:50 flight back to Hong Kong on 12th May (Tuesday) as the Sepang F1 Circuit is located very close to the airport.
So, if you are looking for another driving experience filled with thrills and excitement, please pick up the phone now and contact Janice (contact no. 2336-1316) as soon as possible to reserve a place as follows:-
