1 Mins read

MotoGP bosses Dorna Sports and Shell have agreed a deal for Shell’s Motorcycle oil brand, Shell Advance, to remain as the title sponsor for the 2011 Malaysian Grand Prix.

The Malaysian Grand Prix will run on the 23rd of October this year, and will be the third year in succession that Shell Advance will be the title sponsor, and Pau Serracanta, Managing Director of Dorna Sports said “It is our third year working with Shell as a title sponsor of the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix, and it is great to work with a partner that shares our passion for motorcycle racing and understands what a significant role it plays in Asia.”

Throughout this year, Shell has been encouraging bikers from different parts of the world to vote for their favourite road, route or track, and in return they will be put into a draw, with the chance to win a trip to Sepang for the unveiling of the ultimate Riding Wonder. The shortlisted Seven Riding Wonders, voted for by the public, will be narrowed down to just one lucky winner who will be chosen in Sepang to travel to the ultimate Riding Wonder.

Serracanta continued, “We are delighted that Shell Advance has chosen the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix as the venue for the final of its search for the world's ultimate Seven Riding Wonders and are excited to be a part of the panel that decides the world's ultimate Riding Wonder.”

Shell Advance Global Marketing Manager, Tanmay Jaswal added, “As one of the potential Seven Riding Wonders, Sepang is a fitting location for the final of our unveiling and a further platform to support our successful technical partnership with Ducati Corse. As Asia's foremost motorcycle race, the Malaysian round of the MotoGP World Championship allows us to connect with the aspirations of all the fans in a region where the sport, which represents the pinnacle of motorcycling expertise, is continuing to increase in popularity.”
