2022 MotoGP: Sepang Winter Test a template for holding international motorsports events in Malaysia

Currently ongoing this weekend of February 5 and 6, the 2022 MotoGP Winter Test will be used as a test bed for future international motorsports events in Malaysia. Sepang International Circuit (SIC) CEO Azhan Shafriman Hanif said Winter Test is important as the government as well as race organisers Dorna will use this as a template for future events at SIC.

“Winter Test is the first international motorsports event at Sepang since the beginning of the pandemic. As such, the eyes of the authorities, the Health Ministry and the Home Affairs Ministry will be paying close attention to the SOPs we proposed and are implementing,” said Shafriman.

Saying that it took a lot of work to convince the authorities to allow Winter Test to proceed, Shafriman explained the gradual loosening of the standard operating procedures in line with government guidelines is necessary for the health of the national economy. “We will have to learn to live with Covid-19, in the expectation it will eventually be endemic,” said Shafriman.
