About
SEPANG INTERNATIONAL CIRCUIT

Built in just 14 months, the Sepang International Circuit set the standard for motorcycle racing in Malaysia since the first GP was held in 1999. The track dares riders to keep it pinned through the fast flowing sections, while a few of its slower corners make up for brave out-braking maneuvers.

The 5.5-kilometer-long track means riders face long laps, which are traditionally under hot and humid conditions. With various brands taking the win throughout the years, and with three different brands on the box in last year’s race, it’s hard to predict the outcome of this year’s Malaysian GP.

Luck doesn’t always favor the brave, as can be seen from Danilo Petrucci’s only DNF of the 2019 season in Australia. Back at the sharp end of the pack, contact with another rider in the opening stage of the race literally saw Danilo flying off track while battling for fourth. Bad luck, but while the pace was there, it’s all eyes on Malaysia for now!

About this page

“I’m bitterly disappointed because I was finally having a weekend that lived up to my expectations, and during Sunday morning qualifying, I had set a good time, so I was very optimistic for the race. At Turn 2, Marquez came in on me on the inside, I was forced to go wide and onto a dirty line.

I lost control of the bike and had a high-side that, unfortunately, also involved Quartararo. I’m really sorry for him and also for the fact that I probably missed a chance to get onto the podium. My ankle is hurting badly, but after a first check in the circuit, it seems that nothing is broken. So, I hope I will be OK in Malaysia.”

Mixed emotions after the Australian GP for our boys in the intermediate class. Bo Bendsneyder met his objective to add more points to his total, ending the hard-fought race inside the top 15. Fellow REV’IT! rider, Augusto Fernández, was gutted to have tire issues in the race, which not only forced him to finish outside of the points but, ultimately also took him out of title contention.

“We struggled in Australia because of the mixed conditions, but we were ready for the race after a difficult qualifying. On Sunday, however, we faced a very tough race when I had problems with my rear tire.

It was a shame as we wanted to fight at the front, but this is also racing. So, we are already thinking about Malaysia, because although I won’t be able to fight for the title, the season is still not over!”

“I am happy with a point in a hard-fought battle. At the start, I lost a few places because I couldn’t catch up on the straight and had to follow a slightly different line in the turns than the others. Jesko was caught up on the straight, I couldn’t catch up there. So, that is something we have to work on.

Once I could overtake the others and had a free track ahead of me, I was able to get away and close the gap a bit. The team did a good job on a track that was difficult for me, riding here for the first time in Moto2. We hope that we can continue this line here in Malaysia and also show good results.”

It’s hard not to start off with Queen’s classic “We are the Champions,” As Lorenzo Dalla Porta claimed the Moto3 World Championship Title in an incredible fashion, claiming the win in Australia to secure his title with two races to go. A hard fought championship which Lorenzo approached cleverly, so many congratulations to our Italian Stallion in the Moto3 class. Classmate, Jaume Masià, ended less fortunately, as he unluckily crashed out of contention in the Australian GP.

About this page

“Australia was a crazy race in the end. I was feeling good and in the last lap I was in the lead group, but then another rider crashed and my race was over.

It wasn’t our fault, and I am now focusing on Malaysia as last year I didn’t compete here. So, it’s new, but I am going to give it my all!”

About this page

“I have no words to describe my feelings after winning the World Championship title. This is a dream come true after years of working hard, always pushing, and always believing. I want to thank my family, my team, and all my supporters on my way to becoming World Champion.

I want to dedicate my title to my grandmother who passed away recently. I know she would be proud too. The 2019 season has been an amazing year, and it is not even over yet!”
