In a Bursa Malaysia filing today, UEMS said the joint venture agreement that were entered into in 2012 had today become unconditional upon fulfillment of its conditions precedent. 

"Following the above, FASTrack Autosports (Iskandar) Pte Ltd (formerly known as FASTrack Autosports Pte Ltd) now owns 70% of the issued and paid up share capital of Fastrack Iskandar Sdn Bhd (FISB) and UEM Sunrise's shareholding in FISB has reduced to 30%," it said. 

"Accordingly, FISB has ceased to be a subsidiary of UEMS on December 30," it added.

The proposed development is intended to be a motorsport city consisting of components such as showrooms, automotive retail, workshop, test track, go-kart track and all other automotive related trades and activities.
