Malaysian Grand Prix

The Malaysian Grand Prix was scheduled in 1999 Formula 1 Calendar, the existing Malaysian GP is held at the Sepang International Circuit at Sepang, Malaysia. FIA-sanctioned racing in Malaysia has existed since the 1960s. For 2011, the race will change its name to the Malaysia Grand Prix.

Sepang International Circuit

Sepang International Circuit is a racing track in Sepang, Selangor, Malaysia. It is situated near Kuala Lumpur International Airport, just about 60 km south of the capital city Kuala Lumpur. It is the venue used for the F1 Malaysian Grand Prix, A1 Grand Prix as well as the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix. It is also used as a spot for many other major motorsport actions.

Circuit Design

The main track, generally raced in a clockwise direction, is 5.54 kilometers long, and is noted for its sweeping corners and wide straights. The layout is quite unusual, with a very long back straight separated from the pit straight by just one very tight hairpin. Other configurations of the Sepang circuit can also be used. The north circuit is also raced in a clockwise direction. It is mainly the first half of the main circuit. The course turns back towards the pit straight after turn 6 and is 2.71 kilometers long in total.

The south circuit is the other half of the racecourse. The back straight of the main circuit becomes the pit straight when the south circuit is in use, and joins onto turn 8 of the main circuit to form a hairpin turn. Also run clockwise, this circuit is 2.61 km in length. Sepang International Circuit also features kart racing and motocross facilities.
