Sepang International Circuit, Sepang, Malaysia, 28-30 March, 16:00 (local time)

 

Sepang International Circuit

One of the main things that appeal about the Grand Prix Formula 1 circuit, certainly to me at least, is the sheer range of locations is can take you to, in exotic locations covering pretty much the whole globe. This includes more traditional holiday hotspots like Monaco, Singapore or Budapest, but also places that you probably wouldn't think to visit if there wasn't a race there.

Sepang in Malaysia definitely falls into this latter category. Sepang is a small town located in the Selangor district of Malaysia, and if it wasn't for the Grand Prix it's highly unlikely you would have heard of it. It's next most notable claim to fame concerns the controversy over a proposed industrial pig farm, which gives you an idea of it's provincial nature!

So it is the motor sport that very much puts this place on the map. The Sepang International Circuit has been hosting a Formula 1 grand prix every year since it's opening in 1999. The race is currently sponsored by Petronas, the Malaysian oil and gas company that is probably most well known for the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, which were for many years famously the tallest buildings in the world, before being usurped by the pesky Taipei 101.

If you're going to this race, then it's sensible to be prepared for adverse weather conditions - racing in wet conditions is more likely here than pretty much any other location, and when the rain comes it tends to fall hard and fast, which has actually led to the race being completely abandoned in the past.
