- Head to Selangor for high-octane action while staying in Langkawi

May 26, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News reports people who are staying in accommodation in Langkawi may enjoy the beaches of the island for the majority of their holiday, but if they want some fast-paced excitement they should arrange an excursion back to the mainland.

On the weekend of June 18th, the Sepang International Circuit in Selangor will be hosting the Malaysian round of the Super GT International Series.

This high-octane racing event promises to provide spectators with lots of fast-paced action on the track.

For those interested in the cars and technology used in the races, the first day of the event could be the best time to visit.

Drivers and race teams will spend their time preparing the vehicles for the race, as well as pushing for poll position in the qualifying rounds.

The Saturday and Sunday will be full of further qualifying rounds and the Super GT races for several different championships.

On the evening of June 19th, children will have a very special opportunity to get up close with the cars involved by taking part in a pit walkabout and seeing how things work behind the scenes.

Tickets for the main grandstand start from RM100 (£20.89), while the cheaper option of the K1 grandstand is available from RM70.
