RACE PROFILE

Malaysia has long had ambitions to join the countries hosting international motor sport and the country now has a circuit worthy of hosting both the F1 and FIM Motorcycle Grand Prix and one which raises the standards for all other circuits. It was designed and built by the same German company responsible for redeveloping the A1-Ring and the Nurburgring. Thought to have cost £50 million, it was built in just 14 months - at one stage 2500 workers were on site.

The result is a futuristic blend of stainless steel and glass-fronted buldings and an impressive double-sided main grandstand capable of seating 50,000 spectators. It has been designed to encourage overtaking, being very wide and containing at least four slow corners following long straights. The other 10 corners are medium-to high-speed and top speeds of over 180 mph are predicted. The surrounding 2,300 acre Gateway Park will contain a hotel complex, shopping centre, a golf course and other sports facilities and a theme park.
