Sepang International Circuit (SIC) has officially launched the Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix (Malaysia MotoGP), which will be held at Sepang from 28 to 30 October 2016. The Malaysian leg is Round 17 of the 18-leg 2016 MotoGP World Championship.
“The excitement and anticipation generated by the promising performance of our Malaysian riders in Moto3 and Moto2 as well as the fierce rivalry between the riders in the premier class has been a boon for us. We are anticipating a surge in local fan interest and well as a healthy percentage of international fans attending the race,” said YBhg Dato’s Razlan Razali, CEO of SIC.
In line with the event, Shell Advance also launched exclusive limited edition packs for four variants of their best selling motorcycle engine oils – Shell Advance Ultra with PurePlus Technology 10W-40 (1L) and 15W-50 (1L), Shell Advance AX7 10W-40 (1L) and Shell Advance AX5 Scooter 15W-40 (0.8L).

The designs of our flagship Shell Advance Ultra with PurePlus Technology 10W-40 and 15W-50, in particular, pay tribute to our 18-year partnership with Ducati on the racing track. Owners of motorcycles, regardless of type and model, can enjoy every ride as some of the world’s most advanced lubricant technology goes into each bottle of Shell Advance,” added Shairan Huzani Husain, Shell Malaysia’s Local Senior Downstream Representative.
