Yes, the Malaysia Speed Festival (MSF) will be back at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) this Sunday, July 9 for Round 4 of the championship – and it’s set to be another action-packed race with more than 150 cars across different classes expected to do battle against each other. The upcoming round will be of particular interest as it is an Enduro round with longer 35 minute races, driver changes and points bonuses.

In the main Race Car Open category, the Mayhem-Fast Autoworks MaxxOil team’s Keifli Othman has romped off with three wins on the trot, and now leads the championship with an astounding 840 points compared to SITTY-DNT’s Ahmad Akid’s tally of 635 points. The latter managed to leapfrog early favourites such as teammate Mark Darwin, Fastlap Autoworks’ Faidzil Alang and Evotec Racing’s Shazull Hisham.

Moving on to the Proton 1800 NA class, Eelan from VAG Racing managed to benefit from Ngah Motorsport’s Lau Seng Kiat’s crash in the previous round, as did SPV Automotive’s Nicholas Au. The two of them have closed the gap in the standings with 575 points and 525 points respectively, compared to Lau’s 605 points. Seasoned racer K. Perajun also stands a chance, having won both races in Round 3.

Last but not least is the popular Saga Cup, which saw Tommy Lee winning Round 3 in the Expert class. But it was SMRT’s Jay Choong who, after coming second, now leads the championship with 695 points; ST Wangan’s Boy Wong, who lost a wheel, is in second with 630 points. It’s a close race in the Novice class too, with SMRT’s Syed Rizal leading Loco Racing’s Ahmad Faizry with 550 points versus 545 points.

Other forms of racing that will be present at MSF include Special Kei, Street Tuned and Street Tuned 1,600, Super Street, Super 1500 NA and 1,600 and 1,800 Race Car races. Paddock tickets are priced at RM20 before 11 am on July 9, and RM35 after. For more information, visit MSF Racing’s official website or its Facebook page.
