Also taking place this afternoon was the officiating ceremony, attended by Kuching North City Commission (DBKU) deputy director Rudzaimeir Malek who was representing DBKU mayor Datu Junaidi Reduan.

“Congratulations to the organising committee. I’m sure you have put in quite a lot of work into organising such a big event such as this. I can see that a lot of coordination had also taken place,” he said.

Meanwhile, SMF 2022 organising chairman Andy Chong said the event is held to unite all motorsports enthusiasts and gather them in an event to promote healthy motorsports culture throughout the state.
