Plans to Reopen the Pasir Gudang Circuit

The Johor Government is making plans to reopen the Pasir Gudang Circuit, also known as the Johor Circuit. The historic circuit has been closed for the past nine years.

Chairman of the Youth and Sports Committee, Entrepreneur Development and State Cooperatives Mohd. Hairi Mad Shah said he along with Menteri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi will meet the Acting Sultan of Johor Tunku Mahkota Ismail Sultan Ibrahim to present plans to reopen the circuit.

He said the re-opening of the circuit will cost a lot, but it will serve as the Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) Racing Team’s training ground with the participation of national rider Hafizh Syahrin Abdullah.

“When there was a JDT Racing Team in Johor, many people asked about the Pasir Gudang Circuit, but (according to) a review, it will involve a relatively high cost for the overhaul.

“So, God willing, I and the Menteri Besar will go to the Acting Sultan of Johor to consider this circuit being reopened for the training of Hafizh Syahrin and motoring enthusiasts in the near future,” said Mohd. Happy birthday yesterday.

He also hoped that the re-opening of the circuit could further stimulate motor sports, thus becoming the location of choice for those involved in the sport.

JDT ventured into motor sports with Hafizh who will compete in the 2024 Asian Motorcycle Championship.

He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist.
