This weekend, the third round of the Malaysia Speed Festival Series 2018 (MSF 2018) is set to take place at the Sepang International Circuit on July 8, 2018. The MSF series is one of the largest motorsport events in the country, with around 200 participating vehicles and an attendance of about 5,000 spectators.

As with previous rounds, the latest one will see plenty of action on track, with drivers battling it out across 13 categories. Round three will also be more exciting as participants from neighbouring Thailand will also be involved.

In the Street 1600 category, where 90s cars from Honda, Toyota, Proton and Nissan will compete, participants will look to chase down current championship leader Philip Tang from JDM Racing in his Civic EF. Among them are Zuhaidi Ishak from Z Garage who also pilots a Civic but an EG model, along with Hazrin Kaidi from JMS Tuner in a Toyota Levin.

The Super Production category will also be one to look out for with the participations of relatively new models like the Honda Jazz, Toyota Vios and Perodua Myvi. Currently, Roni Risman, who represents Piston Project, is sitting comfortably at the top with 625 points after two rounds. However, he is being pursued by Sobree Maenchir (Thailand Corredor Racing) and his Vios.

A crowd pleaser, the Race Cars Open category is where the meanest and fastest machines go to prove themselves. In round two, Thilak Sharma teamed up with Alif Hamdan to set a blistering time of 2 minutes and 19 seconds around Sepang in a Proton Satria 4WD Turbo.

Non-turbocharged cars proved to be quite competitive as well, such was the case with Azlan Malik, Shazull Hisham, Shamir Aizan, Hasrul Hisham and others that piloted Honda vehicles. The highly competitive nature of this category has attracted the attention of Thailand native, Weerakarj Dokchan from World Pumps Corredor Racing, who will be bringing his Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 9 to compete.
