    well, it's an added value being a sport journalist covers F1 race in sepang. several days before qualifying and race days, several teams make invitation in hotels with special themes. for example sauber petronas F1 team. i attended to sunway lagoon, in a party so called 'sarung special'. which is in receptionist, all of the guests asked to wear traditional sarung. it's nice.
    here i took picture with mr philippe gurdjian, one of the manager of sepang f1 circuit. thanks for kindly help, mommy agnes :)

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Sepang F1 Circuit is also connected with major expressways and highways. A 45 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur city via the 6 lane North-South highway exiting at the Elite Expressway will lead you to the circuit.

    You can choose from variety of transports - taxi, linousine or luxury economy coaches. Should you prefer a more scenic view journey, there is a choice of either a 40 minute train from KL or 20 minutes train from Seremban. Both trains stop at Nilai where a bus will take you directly to the circuit.

    Fondest memory: I love the crowds! They will put on their favourite team for example Ferrari team fan will wear a Ferrari outfit and so forth. Really cool.....I will be back again next year!!!!!
