25RFC 2020 on VIRTUAL Celebrations.

Standard Message to all RFCGS org / reps, participants & media members

The ONLY time in our 25 continuous editions of the Rainforest Challenge (RFC Grand Final) where we are interrupted by a pandemic! 

As you are aware, 25RFC Silver Jubilee Grand Final 2020 (involving foreign teams / media members) was officially postponed to 2021 when the Malaysian Gov announced that all borders will remain closed till 31 Dec 2020.

However, with inter-state borders open, RFC International decided to still continue the race (uninterrupted for the 25th time), but only for Malaysian and foreign participants based in the country as Rainforest Challenge 2020 for 25 local based teams in our 25RFC year.

Our thanks & gratitude to Ministry of Tourism (MOTAC), Tourism Malaysia, Ministry of Health (MOH), Ministry of Youth & Sports (KBS) & the National Security Council (MKN) for painstakingly guiding & going through the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) with us on all safety aspects including with a reduced number of participants (racers, support crew, officials & org committee) and no spectator crowds to ensure a safe from Covid19 event.

However by Oct, a 3rd wave began to spike in peninsula Malaysia including the areas where RFC 2020 was supposed to be held. With increasing cluster of cases, its back to semi lockdown situation again, which has led us to make a final decision to abort the whole 25RFC 2020 to 2021.

It’s unfortunate for us and those Malaysian & expatriate teams that we are finally beaten by an external factor beyond our control; but we are proud to have fought the Good Fight to the last possible minute. Both RFC org committee & local based teams (already preparing their combat machines) were in a state of readiness for RFC 2020 D-Day.

However, the top priority for us as organizer is the WIDER INTEREST & BIGGER PICTURE of SAFETY for everyone and for the NATION at large. 

In spite of this, our RFC SPIRIT is not dampened at all, both in Malaysia and worldwide in RFC Global Series (RFCGS). Therefore, RFC International has decided to celebrate our 25RFC 2020 VIRTUALLY during 27-29 Nov (supposedly our D-Day for this year).

All can participate during these virtual celebrations with:

  1. For everyone, a short 1-2 min video (or longer) from where you are (with your org/ teams / committee with RFC or 25RFC branding) with well wishes for 25RFC 2020 and post it on your facebook & instagram and tag #25RFC2020 or #25RFC

  2. For everyone, you can also send photos from where you are, with RFC or 25RFC branding with message of congrats/well wishes on our 25th year of RFC & see you for Silver Jubilee celebrations in 2021, any wish from your hearts as “Who Are We….RFC.”

  3. For media members (filmmakers) you are most welcome to post your video clip summary as special for 25RFC celebrations, which we are sure, will be creative.

  4. For media members (still photography), you are most welcome to post your selected best shots as summary for 25RFC celebrations, again, we are sure will be great.

  5. We will be planning a zoom session too, during those dates, details of which will be updated to you.

  6. As one big RFC Tribe of family members, we are also open to any suggestion from you anytime during this Nov-Dec 2020 period. Send to: rfc@rfc-global.com cc fida@rfc-global.com.

  7. From RFC International, we shall be continuously posting news publicity updates on RFC & news from our RFCGS events, as usual, in our social media: facebook: Rainforest Challenge International, RFC, RFC Global Series, Luis Wee & Luis Wee II + on instagram @luisjawee @rainforestchallenge 

Ending this message with positive thoughts and wishing all of us in the RFC SPIRIT of Never Giving up our PASSION for off-road extreme racing anywhere on planet earth. Looking forward to seeing you all for 25RFC Silver Jubilee Grand Final in 2021.

Catch up VIRTUALLY from 27-29 Nov 2020. Who Are We..?? RFC! 

Yours faithfully,
