Summernats have the intriguing news that they’re taking the show to Malaysia:
Today in Kuala Lumpur Andy Lopez, co-owner of the Summernats, signed a joint venture with leading Malaysian motorsport promoter JPM Motorsports to stage a Summernats Exhibition Event at the 2013 Malaysian GT at Sepang on 15/16 June, the first step towards a stand-alone Summernats festival in Malaysia.
JPM Motorsports are the promoters of the Malaysian leg of the popular Japanese SuperGT series (www.supergt.com.my). Mr JP Chin, founder and chairman of JPM said “When Andy visited us recently he was impressed with the way we organised SuperGT and offered us an opportunity to do a Summernats Malaysia”.
The Summernats Exhibition will feature more than 50 Malaysian owned muscle cars, Japanese GT and domestic vehicles, custom and road bikes, some judged events and an image gallery of Summernats champions past and present.
“The Super GT, Malaysia and Summernats seems like one of the most unlikely partnerships you could imagine, but Malaysia has an enthusiastic and growing muscle car scene.” Lopez says.
It will be an interesting ride.
