Malaysia to have drag racing circuits in all states

A plan to build a drag racing circuit in every state in Malaysia has been mooted by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob. Speaking during the 2022 RXZ Members 4.0 Programme at the Terengganu International Drag Strip, Sabri said the proposal will be included in Malaysia’s 2023 Budget this October.

Reported by Bernama, Sabri said with the facility available, it would give youths the opportunity to participate in motor sports activities through proper channels. Via the programme, Sabri added, youth could gain knowledge, through training, courses and clinics and help in scouting new talents for participation in motor racing at the state and national level.

“So far, two drag circuits have been built, in Terengganu and Melaka,” said Sabri, adding the government always support activities by motoring clubs, especially in helping help those affected by hardship, such as flood victims. “Many motoring clubs are involved in charity work…During the flood, they helped to clean houses of flood victims…Perhaps we can organise (a gathering of riders) every year and the government can provide sponsorship,” Sabri said.

          Just goes to show why the youths had started to turn back towards BN because of these youth focused programs. Timely indeed with Undi18 the youth voters will know which side has heard their voices and have their interest.

    “If you want to race in the real world, try your local track.
    Make sure your car is safety inspected and always wear your helmet and your seatbelt.”

    On normal road, it’s reckless speeding, beyond regulated speed limit.

    Trims kaseh PM Sabrikor for giving a legal outlet for the young to vent some steam. Thru this we might even unearth hidden Takumi Fujiwaras of cubcais.

    Here we go again more useless projects that don’t bring any benefit except for their own pockets. In few years time the circuits will be all in ruined and the govt. will spend more money to rescue them, go on and on this nonsense.
