The Sepang International Circuit is Malaysia's 'Home of Motorsport'. Designed by famous circuit designer Hermann Tilke, SIC was opened in 1999 at a cost of £50 million with construction being completed in just 14 months. With a length of 5.543 km, the track features 15 turns and 8 straights, providing overtaking opportunities and maximum acceleration, ensuring a race full of suspense and excitement. In total, the track can accommodate up to 130,000 spectators at a time and with Malaysian riders being represented in both MotoGP and Moto2, you can be sure for an incredible atmosphere from the passionate local fans.
With the unpredictable weather, which can be anything between a heatwave and a monsoon, the Malaysian MotoGP is always an exciting race which can throw up some unexpected results. The 2019 Championship race saw the already crowned 2019 World Champion Marc Marquez settle for second place, following a race-long fight with Maverick Vinales. Fan favourite Valentino Rossi finished in fourth place, a drastic improvement from his performance in the 2018 Championship race, which saw The Doctor crash out in the lead with only four laps remaining.
