Endurance race is back after two years

PETALING JAYA: The long wait is over as the Sepang 1,000km Endurance Race (S1K) is back in town from Nov 26-27.

The event, which was last hosted in 2019, will kick off with the free practice and qualifying sessions on Friday while the 181-lap race will be flagged off the next day from 11am until 8pm.

Sepang International Circuit (SIC) has also announced Yokohama as the official tyre partner and BHPetrol as their fuel partner for the 13th edition of the nine-hour race.

In 2019, S1K recorded the highest entry with more than 70 participants competing in two classes – M Production (modification) and S Production (no modification).

Over the years, the S1K which started in 2009, has attracted international entries from Australia and Japan but there will be no foreign participation and support races this year due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.

Meanwhile, the SIC said in a statement that entrance is free for fully vaccinated fans and the race would also be streamed live via the SIC Facebook page.

At the last event, Proton R3 Motorsports’ Mitchell Cheah-Farique Hairuman won the M Production category while DNT Tune’s Najiy Ayyad Abdul Razak-Ahmad Faizry Mohamed-Juzaili Jasmay lifted the S Production crown.
