Kicking off the Malaysian motorsports calendar with a bang is the Malaysia Speed Festival (MSF) Superbikes Trackday and Time Attack this February 11 at Sepang International Circuit (SIC). The day will be divided into three segments which are the Below 400 cc Time Attack from 9.00 to 11.00 a.m., the Above 400 cc Track Day from 11.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. and the Above 400 cc Time Attack from 2.00 p.m. to 5.00 p.m.

For the Below 400 cc Time Attack and Above 400 cc Track Day, cost is RM350 per rider, while the Above 400 cc Time Attack is at RM450 per rider. Cost for the Time Attack includes a transponder, and official timings will be posted, with light refreshments and lunch buffet served according to class.

The Below 400 cc Time Attack will be in a free flow format, with riders having open access to the track, while the Above 400 cc riders will be divided into A, B and C groups, depending on rider lap times. Trophies will be awarded for the podium finishers in each Time Attack class, based on recorded lap time.

In the Time Attack category, riders will have their lap times recorded, and lap timing will be posted at the end of each session. This allows riders to compare their improvements, as well as allow benchmarking against other riders without dispute.

A safety briefing will be held at 8.15am at the SIC Paddock, and attendance is compulsory for all riders. Riders are required to wear full-face helmets with leather riding suits – single or two-piece – as well as gloves and boots. Using a back protector is strongly recommended.

Access to the main grandstand and paddock is free on February 11 and spectators are reminded to stay clear of the motorcycle pit area. Registration and payment for the 2018 MSF Track Day and Time Attack, as well as other details, can be found here.
