Beginning from November 1-3, SIC will welcome back the world’s amazing riders in the penultimate round of the Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix 2019 .

Then as recently announced, SIC will welcome a new international event from December 12-15, the famed 5.543km track will see a unique double-header world-class events with the World Touring Car Championship (WTCR) and motorcycling Endurance World Championship (EWC) being hosted in one race weekend.

SIC Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Razlan Razali said he was excited to be welcoming fans to a series of world-class events at the circuit.

“This unique collaboration with Eurosport Events will make the race exclusive and one of a kind as we create history by hosting two world championships together in one weekend. Both races will take place until sunset, and the chequered flag will be waved under the new SIC Circuit Lights,’’ said Dato Razlan.

The FIM Endurance World Championship is the premier worldwide endurance motorcycle racing championship. The inaugural 8 Hours of Sepang on December 14 will see the finest Asian teams wishing to qualify for the Suzuka 8 Hours grand finale on the track alongside the EWC’s permanent teams, who will be invited to Sepang and SIC will also place 5 wildcard riders to compete.

The 8 Hours of Sepang will be the second race on the 2019-2020 FIM EWC calendar, held in between Bol d’Or and 24 Heures Motos, as part of the reworked winter calendar initiated by event promoters Eurosport Events.

The WTCR event will see the third and final race run under floodlights from 7pm (local time), making it the maiden WTCR night race which is set to be a spectacular occasion during the deciding weekend of 2019.
