Mitsubishi Motors sponsors two races in China for Year 2000:
The 7th consecutive Mitsubishi Lancer Challenge Cup
and the 47th Macao Grand Prix

Mitsubishi Motors provides 21 Lancers
for the 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer Challenge Cup
in the FIA GT Championship in Zhuhai, China

For the seventh consecutive year, the Federation of Automobile Sports of China (FASC) welcomes the support of Mitsubishi Motors in staging China Zhuhai International Racing. And, once again, Mitsubishi Motors will provide Lancers for this one-make competition - known as the Mitsubishi Lancer Challenge Cup - through Ralliart, its wholly owned motor sports subsidiary.

Mitsubishi Motors will provide 21 Lancer vehicles for the seventh running of the Mitsubishi Lancer Challenge Cup. The Mitsubishi Lancer has proven its success in rallies around the world, and its outstanding high performance should make this an extremely exciting race.

Mitsubishi Motors supplies 15 new-model Lancers
for charity racing competition
in the 47th Macao Grand Prix Nov.17-19
(' "Golden Harvest" Mitsubishi Jackie Chan Race')

Mitsubishi Motors hosted the Mirage Cup from 1986 to 1993. After an absence of 9 years, we are resuming participation this year by providing 15 Lancers for the Macao '"Golden Harvest" Mitsubishi Jackie Chan Race, which is named in honor of this world-renowned star.

We have had the pleasure of working closely with Jackie Chan since 1984, participating many times in Jackie Chan races during past years. Our recent opportunities to work together are particularly meaningful because these racing competitions are charity events for the benefit of the JC Foundation.

Made possible by the close relationship between Jackie Chan and Mitsubishi Motors, this year's race takes on special significance as it celebrates the first Macao Grand Prix after the retrocession of Macao to China. In addition to Jackie's popular presence, many famous actresses from Hong Kong and around Asia will also attend this event, adding to the excitement and glamour of the occasion. A variety of media will broadcast these races. Mitsubishi Motor Corporation hopes that this publicity will play a favourable role in further development of motor sports in Macao, Hong Kong, China as a whole, and Asia.

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation is very pleased to have this continued opportunity to sponsor both Mitsubishi Lancer Challenge Cup and the Macao Grand Prix. We will continue contributing to the development of motor sports in China by our support of these activities.
