Pasir Gudang


For many years, racing in the state of Johor was confined to street circuits and it was not until 1986 that the sport received a boost when a proper international circuit was built. Initially Pasir Gudang played host to local races but it wasn't long before the circuit began drawing the attention of the international racing community. The well-planned 3.86km-long circuit quickly grew in stature and prominence and world class events were beginning to make their way to this challenging circuit. With the popularity of the track on the rise it was decided that the circuit should be homologated to FIM standards. In 1990 it was upgraded to meet strict FIM World GP homologation requirements, including modern pit buildings, hospitality suites and a well-equipped media center. In 1991 The Johor Circuit played host to the World 8-Hour Endurance race, which featured top international riders. The response was overwhelming and the following year the endurance race was once again staged in Johor. Also in 1992, Johor won the right to host a round of the World Superbike Championship, which was quickly gaining global popularity. In 1998 the circuit hosted the World Motorcycle Grand Prix Championship. The Malaysian Grand Prix saw all of the top riders including world 500cc champion Michael Doohan competing there. Riders and drivers love this circuit and have described it as highly challenging and great for racing. There are 12 turns on the circuit, which is built on undulating terrain. The 12-metre wide track is a little bumpy and a number of the turns are blind so it's pretty challenging. The run off's are not as big as Sepang naturally so its not a circuit for heroics but a great venue to hone your skills. Being only an hour and a half from Singapore there is no need for hotels. It is possible to get a couple of hours on the track in the morning and be home in time for lunch, which helps to maintain cordial relations with the girlfriend.
