This year’s Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix also saw SIC registering an all-time high crowd attendance of 150,563 for the entire weekend. A total of 88,832 spectators watched Sunday’s dramatic MotoGP race, which saw Spaniard Dani Pedrosa’s victory being overshadowed by the acrimonious clash between Italian Valentino Rossi and outgoing world champion Marc Marquez.


About 45,169 fans attended Saturday’s qualifying while Friday’s practice session, which was free, attracted 16,562 fans.

“We were concerned about the haze but, thankfully, it did not affect our attendance,” said Razlan.PA1823739.0008PA1823741.0008

“I’m happy to see that MotoGP, not Formula One, has become our biggest event this year.”
