What was once a small town in the Selangor region of Malaysia, Sepang has grown through economic development over the past decades. It's main industries and reasons of industrial growth have been based around Sepang International Circuit, and Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
Tourists and race goers alike find themselves staying in the local area, or 50km north in the capital city Kuala Lumpur, the cultural, financial and economic centre of Malaysia. Originally a tin mining town, Kuala Lumpur has grown from a small hamlet of a few shops and houses in the 1800s to a sprawling modern metropolitan area full of art, culture and entertainment.
Sepang International Circuit is located only a 10 minute drive away from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
The capital city of Kuala Lumpur offers plenty of things to see and do! Highlights include:
The weather in Sepang can be particularly unpredictable in October and November. Temperatures are typically very warm and humid, at around 32 degrees Celsius during the day and 23 degrees at night. With high temperatures such as this, wet weather is always expected. Therefore, it's worth being prepared for all conditions by bringing both sun and rain protection. Keep in mind that even covered grandstands may not offer complete protection against the elements. Additionally, air conditioned areas within the circuit are limited, so we recommend bringing handheld fans to keep cool.
