Discounts galore at Malaysia Grand Prix sale

PETALING JAYA - Shoppers can expect wide-ranging discounts from now until April 6 with the launch of the 1Malaysia Grand Prix Sale.

The sale, which is a prelude to the adrenaline-pumping 2014 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix, was launched yesterday by Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz.

"Last year's Malaysian GP attracted some 123,400 spectators throughout the three-day event," said Nazri.

This year's race will be held from March 28 to 30.

"Over 30 per cent of the race goers are foreigners from all over the world.

"This year, we expect more than 125,000 spectators, including a larger number of tourists, who will be here not only for the race, but also to enjoy a memorable holiday in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year," said Nazri.

He said participating malls are offering discounts of up to 70 per cent as well as other promotions.

"Shoppers and tourists alike can expect the best bargains, the best choices, and the best shopping experience," he said.

MasterCard cardholders will also be able to enjoy fantastic promotions during the sale period.

MasterCard is the official card of the 1Malaysia Grand Prix Sale for the 14th consecutive year.

"We are truly honoured to be part of the exciting 1Malaysia Grand Prix Sale, an event set to capture the hearts of locals and tourists wanting a diverse retail experience, besides enjoying Formula One sporting action," said MasterCard Country Head for Malaysia, Safdar Khan.
