SEPANG: The Sepang International Circuit (SIC) is set to hold a motorsport-free day every month at the racing track.
In a bid to promote healthy living and allow Malaysians an upclose view of the track, SIC will open its doors to cyclists and joggers.
SIC chief executive officer Datuk Razlan Razali said that many of the staff cycled regularly on the track when there were no events held there.
“We found it very enjoyable and we hope to share the experience with others.
“We would like to open the track as much as possible to members of the public but our biggest challenge is that the track is almost always fully booked,” he told reporters after cycling with them at the circuit yesterday.
He said that the monthly event would be free of charge, with cyclists, joggers, rollerbladers and skateboarders more than welcome to attend.
“Interest in cycling especially has grown in Malaysia and it makes good sense that we cater for this group as well,” he said.
