2017 has been a very eventful year for petrolheads in Malaysia as we got to witness many major automotive exhibitions.
And even though it is already the end of the year, things are not showing any signs of slowing down as we have another massive automotive lifestyle event lined up just for you in December – Motonation 2017.
All set to take place at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC) from 1 to 3 December, Motonation promises to be more than just an exhibition.
According to organisers, it will be a three-day long carnival which will consist of:
- Automotive exhibition
- Market place for traders
- Art gallery
- Extreme sports arena
- Children playzone
- Paintball shooting range
- Food trucks
- Remote Control car race
- Drifting demo
Besides the above, other highlights of the event include:
- Racing Simulation Tournament in partnership with RACEROOM (KW Suspension Group of Companies)
- “Underground Car Park” Show and Shine competition with automotive clubs
- ‘Superb Competition’ by Teraju with total prizes worth RM 3 million
- Bike and Car customization competition with prizes worth of RM140,000
- Lucky draw with prizes worth up to RM350,000
- Asia Automotive Appreciation Award 2017 in collaboration with Spanarboy.
In case you're wondering what the prizes are for the lucky draw, you are up for a pleasant surprise as the grand prize is an Audi A3 1.4 TFSI kitted with original Audi accessories all the way from Ingolstadt.
Apart from the Audi A3, there will be MODENAS MR1 and MR2 motorcycles, a customised V15 Modenas bike, fruity Apple iPads, as well as Casio G-Shock watches.
And since Petron is the main sponsor of the event, it is providng lucky visitors the chance to grab five RM1000 P-Fuel cards, 20 RM200 P-Fuel Cards, a 1:24 special edition Porsche scale model car and also umbrellas. All in all, there will be more than RM350,000.00 worth of fabulous prizes for visitors at Motonation 2017.
Organised in collaboration with the Malaysian Automotive Institute, Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI), and OAG Entertainment Group among others, Motonation 2017 is targeting a massive 500,000 visitors throughout the 3 days.
Unlike most auto shows and gatherings which either focus purely on cars or bikes, Motonation will see a fair deal of both being present, comprising every style, culture, and movement imaginable.
In an effort to hype up the big event, a series of roadshows have already taken place in JB, Kota Baru, as well as the National Art Gallery in Kuala Lumpur where the response has been nothing short of overwhelming.
That being said, the stage is all set for Motonation 2017, and the countdown has already begun. So, save the dates and be prepared to give your senses a feast.
Entrance fee is priced at RM15 per day for adults and RM10 per day for children aged from 4 to 12 years old.
