After a month-long break, the 2019 Malaysia Speed Festival (MSF) is back for its third round of close-quarters racing, which is set to take place this weekend (July 6-7) at the Sepang International Circuit.

On July 7, the field of MSF racers is set to do battle once again on either four- or two-wheels, as both the Superturismo and Superbikes categories will be contested, each with their own respective sub-categories.

Not only is this an opportunity for teams to gather points to extend or close the gap to their rivals, Round 3 will also be a means to ensure all necessary preparations are in order ahead of the 45-minute endurance race that will take place during Round 4 in late-August.

The racing machines in the Superturismo category are a varied bunch, with engines of different displacements and intake types (naturally-aspirated or forced induction) – being used.

With sub-categories like Super Production, Super 1500 NA, Saga Cup, Street 2000 Limited and Proton 1800 NA – just to name a few – the most exciting will be the SuperStreet Limited where the fastest race cars will look to beat the clock on the Sepang tarmac.

Fans of two-wheelers will also be glad to know the Superbikes category now has a new Toyo Super Rookie sub-category alongside the Super 400 and Super 1000 classes.

A two-hour open track day will also be held on the night of July 6, allowing you to experience the Sepang circuit in your own car with a fee of RM350. The timeframe is from 8pm to 10pm, and you can register your participation here.

The action isn’t limited to the track, as racing simulator aficionados can also take part in the eRacing Grand Prix SEA with the first two time trials happening on Saturday and Sunday (full details here).

With an entrance fee of only RM30, anyone can walk in and take part in the contest, with the four fastest racers going on to compete in the next round at the Atria Shopping Gallery in mid-July. Prizes worth RM100,000 are up for grabs, as well as the opportunity to expand your talent beyond the virtual world at the Formula 4 SEA Championship.

If you’re a big fan of racing, it’ll only cost you RM35 for an all-access ticket (including the paddock area) to Round 3 of the 2019 MSF, which is great for those wanting a more up close and personal experience. Entrance to the K1 section, where you’ll have a clear view of Turn 1 and 2 of the circuit, will be free for all, as the main grandstand area is currently closed due to upgrading works. See you there!
