A FIELD DAY LINED UP FOR THE CIMB CLASSIC 2012
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 15 (Bernama) -- Spectators of CIMB Classic 2012 are set to have a thrilling experience this year over the four-day event. Not only do they get to watch Tiger Woods, Nick Watney, Jason Dufner, Bo Van Pelt and Ben Crane strut their stuff on course, spectators will also be entertained by the various activities that are happening off the field.
Getting there safe and sound
Driving to The Mines can be done via the Besraya Highway and the KL-Seremban Expressway. On the Besraya, look for the signage for The Mines while on the KL-Seremban, turn off at UPM/ Seri Kembangan if youâ€™re coming from the south. Or take The Mines/ Turf Club/ Palace of the Golden Horses exit after Sri Petaling if youâ€™re coming from the north. Both routes will bring you to the Besraya Highway.
Donâ€™t worry about traffic in the Mines as we have a team of traffic personnel that will be on duty to ensure that you get in and out easily. Once in the area, spectators can choose from any of the parking areas below:
1. The Malaysia International Exhibition and Convention Centre,
2. The Mines Shopping Fair I and Mines II,
3. SAC Building,
4. Mines Waterfront open air car park,
5. Mines Waterfront multi-story car park,
6. Palace of the Golden Horses basement car park,
7. Palace of the Golden Horses open air car park, and finally
8. The Selangor Turf Club.
If you donâ€™t fancy walking to the where the action is, then catch the shuttle from the car parks to the main entrance of the Mines.

There is much to do, see and shop at the various sponsorsâ€™ tents including Sapura Group, Malaysia Airlines, BMW, Astro, Maxis, MST as well as CIMB.
