Apology from Expose Media for the Energizer Night Race 2011 - Updated

This is new fresh hot out from the Facebook of Energizer Night Race Malaysia.
Apology statement posted on ENR discussion board.

We, Expose Media, as organisers of the Energizer Night Race 2011, sincerely apologise for any and all discontent experienced by the participants in the event. We take full responsibility for all our actions directly and indirectly leading up to the issues before and on the race day.

We absolve the title sponsor Energizer Malaysia Sdn Bhd, co-sponsors, and the management of Sepang International Circuit of all liability and responsibility.

We are committed to a full distribution of certificates, medals, finishers’ T-shirts, headlights and complimentary gifts to every registered participant in the race.

We will also be announcing the winners today, and they will be contacted personally to receive their awards.

Details of the distribution for the above will be announced at 6pm on Thursday, 21 April 2011.

We would like to clarify that Mr. Mohan Gobindasamy was the official race director on the day and not Datuk A. Chandrakumanan. We apologise to Datuk Chandrakumanan for any implication of his involvement in the race.

We recognise that safety precautions and logistical details were not up to expectations and we deeply regret all the issues that resulted from the situation. We apologise for our behaviour should any party be offended throughout the course of the event.

Josie Huang Wan Ling
Group Director
Expose Media

Edit: The minutes posted, i come across the official apology letter posted in Facebook:
Its the same statement posted by Energizer Night Race Malaysia Facebook, but once you see this letter its should be be term as "Official" as there's no letter head and signature.

Unless you printed said: "this is computer generated no signature required" ! haha...

Remarks / Thought:

Damage is done. Nothing can be done to save the situation. Now the next thing to see how is:
1) How fast Expose Media can send out Finisher Medal & Finisher T?
2) How accurate its going to be?
3) Hope they have enough funds to perform all the above.
4) The less posting on Facebook the better now they posted the letter with no letter head, this will spike some doubt among runners! You thinks we all "Bo Tak Chek" one ah!

Updates on 4:35pm

Energizer Night Race Malaysia posted the apology letter with letter head and signed at 4:30pm. 

Well done power of social media.
