Phuket Drive 2011
Thailand is back!!
The last time that the Club took you to Thailand was already 8 years ago. How can you miss this opportunity of driving all the way to Phuket? Needless to say, once you arrive, you can explore the beautiful Phuket island and the numerous activities that it offers, savour Thai culinary specialties, or simply choose to relax at the luxurious Chandara resort. On the way back, you will be stopping at Cameron Highlands—driving up the legendary winding mountain road before reaching it. Then on the following day, you will be joining Porsche Club Singapore for a day of thrill and excitement on the Sepang F1 Circuit!! Please see attached for the tentative itinerary of the Drive.
This year's Drive will take place between 9th and 16th July. The fees for the Drive will be HK$48,800 (including shipping cost for your car, air ticket for one person, hotel accommodation, licence fee, insurance, road tolls, track fee and mechanical support on track but excluding sea freight insurance and meals). The fee for joining only the Sepang Track Day will be HK$38,000 per car (including shipping cost for your car, hotel accommodation for two nights, track fee and mechanical support on track but excluding sea freight insurance and meals). If you prefer to depart on 15th July (Friday), you could leave the track slightly earlier (at around 3:30 p.m.) and you should still be able to catch the 17:40 flight back to Hong Kong on the same day as the Sepang F1 Circuit is located very close to the airport.
As border crossing is a time consuming and onerous process, in order to keep the process smooth and manageable, the number of participating cars for this Drive will be strictly limited to no more than 18. So if you are interested in this exciting annual event, please pick up the phone now and contact Janice (contact no. 2336-1316) immediately to reserve a place. Also, kindly note the following:-
1.Please send the full amount of HK$48,800 (or HK$38,000 for just the Sepang Track Day), together with the duly filled in ‘Air Ticket and Insurance’ form and the ‘Terms and Conditions’ letter, to the Club at Flat 6, M/F., No. 3 Hope Sea Industrial Centre, Lam Lee Street, Kowloon Bay, Kowloon no later than 6th May 2011).
2.Cheques should be made payable to ‘Porsche Club Hong Kong Ltd’.
3.The fee is non-refundable unless (i) the final amount is higher than either of those indicated above or (ii) the Drive does not proceed as planned. However, if the Drive is cancelled due to any events of unforeseen circumstances or force majeure, such as, acts of God, strikes, political upheaval or other situations beyond the control of the Club etc., the amount of fees that will be refunded will be determined after the deduction of those expenses already incurred or committed by the Club.
