The Sepang International Circuit (SIC) features fast sweeping bends, which give MotoGP bikes a noticeable rhythm that is enjoyable to ride or to watch.
One of the key aspects of this venue is that you can see as much as half of the track from your seat, and the view from most grandstands is very good.
The event tends to be well attended, if not a sell-out, and provides the usual support races of Moto2 and Moto3 rounds as well as local Superbike/Superstock/Supersport and SIC Ninja 250 Cup/Open 250 series.
The Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix is very budget friendly and ticket, transport and accommodation costs are some of the most affordable on the calendar, should you be able to reach Kuala Lumpur with a low cost carrier such as AirAsia.
The draft F1 provisional calendar has been handed out to the teams in Italy as reported by Autosport.com today.
The calendar features 21 races (two more than in 2013) and includes three new grands prix. Austria will take place at the Red Bull Ring on the 22nd June, Russia on the 19th October and Mexico on the 9th November heading an all American end of the season.
The season will start again in Melbourne, Australia and not Bahrain. It will be interesting to see if the teams end up testing in the Middle-East in February.

To make room for the additional rounds, India has been axed for next year but will be back early 2015 when it will be part of the first Asian leg the of calendar. The organisers did not feel they could get enough spectators through the gates in April next and have therefore agreed to postponing their round by 6 months.
