Sepang International Circuit opens its doors after 2-month break

After a long (and probably much needed) break, Sepang International Circuit is back in business with the official announcement of operation commencement since the start of the Movement Control Order (MCO) here in Malaysia due to COVID-19.

Easing their way into the ‘new norm’, only ‘personal training sessions’ are currently on offer for the time being with a limited number of participants at any given time. This is to continue complying with the rules and regulations set by the Ministry of Health to avoid any further infection cases here in Malaysia.

QUICK UPDATE: Group activities consisting of not more than 10 people (participants AND crew) will be allowed, not just personal training sessions.

Latest update by SIC

Motorsports enthusiasts who are keen to get back into training may contact the Sepang International Circuit personnel to book their slots. We’re guessing that this move will prioritise those who require training like the folks who are participating in various motorsports series like MotoGP, Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSBK), Asia Road Racing Championship (ARRC) and private track day organisers.

SIC will continue to monitor the number of attendants as well as keeping records on individual health by performing temperature checking at all entries as well as providing hand sanitisers and face masks to go along with the one-metre social distancing rule using newly-placed markers.

For each ‘personal training session’, not more than 10 participants are allowed to join in. To further amp up the safety factor, designated parking spots are placed two metres apart from each other to minimize contact with other people upon arriving at the circuit.

For more information or to book an appointment, event organisers may contact their respective Account Managers or call the SIC hotline at +603-87782222. During the holy month of Ramadhan, business hours is from 9.00 am to 4.00 am. Stay safe, folks!
