Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix

Sepang Circuit is located in the heart of Malaysia's Multimedia Super Corridor, the Sepang F1 Circuit is accessible via air, rail and road. Limousines, shuttle services and car rentals are available at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), which is only a 10 minute drive from the circuit.

I used to dream of becoming a racer and race along side Michael Schumacher !!

Michael Schumacher

Just to recap, Michael Schumacher drove in his first kart race at the age of five!! Cool huh! Although father Rolf was not enthusiastic about his son's expensive kart ambitions, the boy was able to pursue his career because from time to time he received financial support from local sponsors. Rolf had built his first kart and registered him in the Kart-Club Kerpen-Horrem.
His enthusiasm for kart-driving continued to grow. In 1980, the members of the Kerpen kart club built a new track in Manheim, a suburb of Kerpen. Michael and his brother Ralf spent every free minute there. Michael was still too young for championship races and he had to wait until 1983 for his German kart licence.

In 1984, he promptly became German Junior Champion. In 1985 he won the German Junior Championships again and also came second in the Junior World Championships in Le Mans.

And the lists goes on.........I have been his favourite since.......

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The excitement of watching "car-chase-car" for real is undescripable!
  • Cons:Bring your ear plug with you!! The engine sound is unbearable!
