Yesterday, a press conference was held in Hong Kong to present the last round of the World RX Championship.
Among the guests and authorities was Pier Carlo Bottero, our CEO, as SEL -Sport & Events Logistics has been appointed Title Sponsor of the World RX of Hong Kong.
The World RX will take place on 11 and 12 November in the City's Central Harbourfront Event Space, right next to the iconic Victoria Harbour, on a brand new circuit that will stage the first city centre race in the history of the championship.
After a summer tour in Europe - which included Portugal (Montalegre), Norway (Hell), Sweden (Höljes), UK (Lydden Hill), Belgium (Mettet) and Germany (Estering) - and a return to South Africa (Cape Town) in October, World RX will expand its horizons by venturing into the Asia-Pacific region for the first time.
Organised locally by the Hong Kong Automobile Association (HKAA) and supported by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau, the World RX Championship is promoted regionally by Teamwork Creative Events.
Pier Carlo Bottero stated: "I am deeply honored to be here today at the press conference for the World Rally Cross Final in Hong Kong. This event is an extraordinary moment that celebrates the passion for motorsport and brings together fans, athletes and supporters from the mainland and around the world into a great global community."
Our CEO then underlined the strategic importance of this initiative for SEL: "With over 30 years of experience in the sport industry and an established reputation in the sector, being present as Title Sponsor in a key territory like Hong Kong and China marks an important step for SEL. This allows us to expand our presence in this growing region of the world.
