Federal Tyres is proud to announce the supplier as the official tyre for touring car class of the Malaysian Super Series Championship (simply referred as MSS) and the Sepang 1000km endurance (S1K) race in 2010, marking the first ever season that Federal has sponsored the two Malaysian homegrown international series.
The History of MSS (Malaysian Super Series Championship)
The hottest high-performance competition in the country was introduced for Malaysian driving enthusiasts as a platform to unearth new talents. Over the years of running, the Malaysian Super Series Championship has developed as a truly credible sporting event aiming for bringing out as many professional world-class racers as possible. Meanwhile, as an international standard race circuit in Malaysia, the venue had played the host for major motorsports events in the world such as Formula 1 Grand Prix and Motorcycle Grand Prix. Noted for its sweeping corners, wide line drive and one very tight hairpin, the unusual layout featuring 15 turns and 8 straights of the ultra-modern track offers a real challenge for the world's best drivers. To race in the world renowned Sepang International Circuit (SIC) is something special with a whole different atmosphere and attitude.
We are more than excited that the tyre was recognized by one of the fastest growing motorsports series. The partnership with MMS adds an entirely new dimension to our marketing strategy to promote the Federal brand. It provides not only a good chance to support the ongoing launch of Federal’s new FZ - 201 semi-slick tyre line, but also showcase the performance and durability of the tyre within the punishing environment of motorsports.
The six-round series kicks off on May 29th – 30th, with race days continuing on June 26th -27th and will follow all the way through July, August, September, and to the end of November.
