Porsche Carrera Cup Asia Extends Winning Partnership with SC Global Developments

Porsche Asia Pacific today announced the continuation of its successful partnership with Singapore's premier luxury property developer, SC Global Developments.

As part of a winning partnership which began in 2008 with the inaugural FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX, SC Global Developments will be Official Event Title Sponsor for the 2010 and 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup Asia support races. The 2010 Porsche SC Global Carrera Cup Asia -- Singapore race will be held from September 24 -- 26 this year on the stunning Marina Bay street circuit.

Mr. Christer Ekberg, Managing Director of Porsche Asia Pacific Pte Ltd said: "We are delighted to continue our partnership with Singapore's premier luxury property developer, and look forward to another superb edition of the Porsche SC Global Carrera Cup Asia in Singapore in September. As partners, we have many common goals, not least of which is our shared commitment to excellence. As the region's premier sportscar series, the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia represents an ideal showcase for SC Global Developments' dedication to creating the ultimate luxury lifestyle."

Since its inauguration just two years ago, the FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE

GRAND PRIX has risen to become one of the must-see motorsport events of the year. The enormous enthusiasm for the event, both in Singapore and across the globe, is a great source of pride for all involved.

"We are proud to be the Official Event Title Partner for the 2010 and 2011 Porsche SC Global Carrera Cup Asia -- Singapore; it is a great honour to be able to showcase our dynamic and ever-growing city to the world through one of most exciting motorsport weekends of the year," said SC Global Development's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Simon Cheong. "We are excited to continue our partnership with Porsche Asia Pacific. The event over the last two years has been a resounding success, and we see this partnership as a dynamic new and exciting chapter in their rich racing pedigree."

The 2010 Porsche Carrera Cup Asia season gets underway with an official test this month, before the opening rounds in support of the 2010 FORMULA 1 CHINESE GRAND PRIX in Shanghai in April.

Supporting the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia are two of the most recognised names in international motorsport, Mobil1 and Michelin. Mobil and Porsche have been partners since 1996. Close co-operation in research and development has led to every new Porsche engine being filled with Mobil1 high-performance lubricant. Porsche Carrera Cup Asia drivers also have the advantage of racing on cutting-edge tyres supplied by series partner Michelin. The consistent performance and leading technology of Michelin tyres constantly improve the performance of many teams in international motorsport. The partnership between Michelin and the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia has emerged from a worldwide agreement signed between Porsche AG and the Michelin group.

The Porsche Carrera Cup Asia is organised and promoted by Malaysian based Motorsport Asia Ltd.
