Most known for the Formula One Malaysian Grand Prix and the MotoGP Malaysian Grand Prix, this circuit is one of the best in the world.

Any motorsport lover would have this place on his wish list and it truly is an adrenaline filled moment, sitting in the bleachers and watching the cars or bikes zoom past. When it was built and the first launch in 1999, this circuit had all the cutting edge facilities and up-to-date decor, after a few years down the line, it isn’t that far, but still, has its name on the race charts. Located in Sepang, the motorsport fans who want to visit this circuit have quite a few choices of places to stay at, like the AVANI Sepang Goldcoast Resort for an example of a Sepang hotel.

Now, the track is a challenging one, to say the least, with just huge straights bookended with tight corners. Overtaking can mostly be done only at the end of the long straights at the end of a lap because even though the track surface is smooth, the temperature and the heavy braking into the corners mean that tires wear out just that much quicker. Statistics state that 17% of the lap is spent in just braking and turning corners.
