If you’re a huge fan of cars and Formula One then you would want to visit to KLCC now! WHY HUH?!
In conjunction with the 14th edition of the grand prix in Malaysia, PETRONAS is once again organizing the 2012 Formula 1 PETRONAS Malaysia Grand Prix showcase! The event is being held at KLCC concourse from 17th to 25th of March, from 10am to 10pm, admission is FREE!
Of coz, the main attraction would be the display of MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team car.
Geez… You know how badly I wished that I could have a chance to sit in this car at the pit driving around and experience the speed of over 300km/h?
Since I dun get to ride in it, I shall get some satisfaction of posing with another gorgeous gal with this gorgeous car instead. *wink wink*
PETRONAS entered the world of Formula One in 1995, it took the first step towards positioning the brand globally. Since then, it has matured into global player with the operations across more than 30 countries in Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and South America.
This sexy Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roaster is also one of the main attraction at the showcase displayed at the concourse area too.
Ohh… isn’t he sexy? Yeah, I call it a he. =p
A welcome speech by Miss Ezzan and she briefed us about Formula 1, motorsports@ PETRONAS and also the agenda for the night.
We were ushered to the game booth to play Speed of Sound which was specially created for this year’s event. The game requires the player to hum according to the loudness or frequency based on the racing track line on screen.
So, if the player voice matches the frequency of the racing track on screen, the car speeds up and reaches the finish line faster too. I was the first one to be called up to play the game.

It was rather embarrassing to be humming ‘aaahhhh…Aaahhhhh…AAAAHHHHHHHHHH~~~‘ infront of so many people so I kept laughing at myself non-stop. But I would say, it’s a fun and exciting game trying to beat the other players! But I think I scored the last in the list. XD
If you’re interested to take part in the game, log on to www.petmos.com.my and participate in the contest running from 18-25 March 2012. The fastest racer will be selected daily and each daily winner will race away with exclusive prizes from PETRONAS Motorsports Merchandise. Dun say I never tell you bout this huh?!
There were also other games as well at the showcase.
We were then brought to see the PETRONAS Suspended Formula One Cars at Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS Foyer.
Wow, first time seeing these flying/floating cars, it’s not just any car, it’s PETRONAS F1 cars! On the left is the 2011 PETRONAS Formula One car, and on the right is the 2010 PETRONAS Formula One car.
Since it’s such a rare sight to see, I took the opportunity for a self shot too! =p
Ever wonder how the team put up the cars? Here’s a short video on how they did it!
Amazing huh? It’s quite an effort. Kudos to the team!
It wasn’t only about these amazing cars and games, there are merchandising booths selling PETRONAS Motorsports’ latest 2012 GP and PETMOS collection as well as limited MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team and Mercedes-Benz merchandise line.
So, all the fans out there, it’s your chance to get these exclusive merchandise. =)
The PETRONAS Syntium Moto is sold there too!
The Syntium Moto range of motorcycle lubricants was developed with winning technology. Its proprietary DualTech™ Technology, for four-stroke (4T) engine oils, enhances gear change and transmission performance whilst ensuring cleaner engine components in any riding condition. It is also miles ahead of other oils currently in the market by being the first to apply API SM.
PETRONAS ventures into motor sports further back in 1988, when it was evident that motor sports was the ideal platform to help promote its fuel and lubricant products domestically.
It was nice of PETRONAS team to bring us for a dinner at The Apartment for a great dinner.
Miss Anita, the General Manager of the PETRONAS team gave us a short but warm welcome speech.
She sat at our table and it was nice knowing her and the chit chats.
There were also Q&A for phone giveaways.
We ended the night with a group photo.
