KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 12 -- The second and final round of the Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSBK), scheduled to be held at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) from Jan 20-22, has been postponed until further notice.
Two Wheels Motor Racing Sdn Bhd director Ron Hogg, in a joint statement with SIC, said the postponement was due to the implementation of Movement Control Order (MCO) from Jan 13-26.
Two Wheels Motor Racing acts as the promoter of the MSBK.
“We are unable to provide an alternative plan for now and we thank the teams and riders for their patience and understanding. Meanwhile, let’s all work together to bring the pandemic under control again,” he said.
SIC chief executive officer Azhan Shafriman Hanif regards the postponement as unavoidable, saying that the health and well-being of all participants were their top priority.
Yesterday, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced the implementation of the MCO in six states - the Federal Territories (Kuala Lumpur, Labuan and Putrajaya), Penang, Selangor, Melaka, Johor and Sabah - for 14 days following a spike in COVID-19 cases.
He also announced the enforcement of the Conditional MCO in Pahang, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Kedah, Terengganu and Kelantan while Sarawak and Perlis would be placed under the Recovery MCO during the same period.
