    On the 23rd May 2009, the first round of Sepang Drag Battle SDB is held at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) but unluckily, i have to work that night and even if am free i wouldn be able to drive my car there since my car had been grounded for few months.

    But on the next day, on the 24th of May, there is a Track Day organizes by the SIC. For your information, the track day is open for everyone to drive their car on the international standard SIC. Yes, you’ll be racing on the same track as all the F1 cars and Japan GT racing cars were racing before.

    The Sepang Track day doesnt come often. It depends on the availability of the track. If there is a lot of racing event or any other special programs. the frequency of the track day will be lesser.The date of the track day can be found in www.malaysiangp.com. But most of the announcement is quite late and its better to call the person in charge for confirmation of the date.

    The requirement of entering the circuit on the track day is simple. All you need is a working car which there is no leakage of oil and the car meets the national safety code such as the seat belts and a proper working brake system. It doesnt matter if you car is fully modified or stock standard. I saw a stock standard persona and a stock Honda City driven by a lady.And when every condition is satisfied, all you have to do is register yourself at the registration counter and pay the sum of RM200 for a session of 3 hours. But dont forget, you have to bring a safety helmet, both for the driver and the passenger.

    If you plan to race in the track, make sure you have some extra cash in hand. Anything can happen in the track. On that day, im suppose to become a passenger of my friend’s Honda Civic Type R FD2R. But for the first round, my other friend sits in the passenger seat. And after 1 and a half lap, a Satria Track car rammed his fender while he was taking a nice apex line at the corner.So he moved to the side but the Satria stayed in the middle of the track and few second later, another Honda Civic FD2 banged the Satria. And caused a massive damage to both the Satria and the Civic. For my friend, he’s quite lucky cause he is still able to drive off the car but like the other Civic owner, his car cant move and in need of towing. So this is where you need the extra Cash.
