With the 2022 Grand Prix of Malaysia, with new title sponsor Petronas, scheduled for Oct this year, preparations are underway to welcome the return of global sporting gatherings to Sepang Intercontinental Circuit (SIC).

But with God’s grace, we have managed to pull through and we are all searching forward to the return of MotoGP to Sepang,” explained Shafriman. “The renewal of the Dorna MotoGP contract and Petronas coming onboard as the new title sponsor, using about from Shell, is really excellent information,” he ongoing.
