Sepang International Circuit (SIC) chief executive officer Datuk Razlan Razali hinted a fourth circuit layout might be included during track resurfacing works being carried out from February 15 to May 8. Speaking exclusively to paultan.org, Razlan said the SIC team and consultants for the track layout are exploring the possibility of including a fourth track configuration.
“We are exploring whether we can reconfigure the track in two or three different configurations. Right now we have the full track, the north and south tracks, we are looking at one more in-between, a four km configuration,” said Razlan.
Razlan is aware of the magnitude of the task ahead, “We are resurfacing the track, that is a major renovation. There may be some improvement, we are waiting for the consultants to let us know what other proposed improvements are included. Of course, we still have the same number of corners, but, it should become what they call a “free-flowing” circuit rather than a stop-go type of track.”
