SIC ready for night race

Malaysian authorities at the Sepang Formula One circuit say they will be ready to host a night race next year, according to local media report.

Monkhzani Mahathir, chairman of the Sepang circuit told the New Straits Times newspaper that talks were ongoing to stage a night race at the venue.

"We're studying the best system as there is no single lighting technology that can fit all tracs," Mahathir said. "We're in discussion with companies which can do that."

"We have also studied the impact of having lighting technology at the circuit and we have come to the conclusion that it will help generate bigger revenue as the circuit can be rented for night racing," he concluded.
