It was a long journey to the Sepang International Circuit. The highway was jammed, and we used the motorbike’s lane most of the time. Some vehicles even drove on the grass patch to reach to the SIC.
The so-called carparks
There is a parking charges of RM50 to park in this natural carpark. You can pre purchase the parking sticker at the ticket booth or just after the Plaza Tol exits. You are not allowed to the SIC areas and the trafic police will tell you to get out of the place. We managed to sneak through without the parking sticker and parked our car on the side of the road just before the carpark.
A Ferrari just passed by me

The race ended with Fernando Alonso (McLaren-Mercedes) clocked 1:32.14.930. Lewis Hamilton (McLaren-Mercedes) hit 2nd, Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) is 3rd, Nick Heidfeld (BMW Sauber) 4th and 5th is Felipe Massa (Ferrari) who had a bad day by doing so many mistakes from the start. The turnout is about 115,000 spectators and is the highest in Sepang.
To The Exits
The Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix 2007 is not that exciting as the one I watched on television. Maybe because we only got to see some part of the race and no big screen on our side. I feel like all the racers were just having fun at this event as I can’t see any overtaking take place. My friend who went there last year said it was very noisy but I find it not so bad. Imraneo and I managed to endure the heat with just our cap and no water while Amino hide under his umbrella.
Time : 5.50pm
Went to have our lunch cum dinner at the Perhentian.
Dinner $$$ = Nasi Goreng (RM2) + Ayam Goreng (RM2) + Coke (RM1.60) + Mineral Water (RM2) = RM7.60
Time : 9pm
Reached Orkid Hotel to park our car and clean up before we went on foot to Berjaya TimeSquare for a short shopping and a cup of Starbucks Coffee.

Reached Jalan Bukit Bintang area to look for massage therapist. A place offered us RM68 for an hour full body massage. Amino said it is expensive and we walked away.
Bought a belt for RM20 and a Manchester United shirt for RM15 at the pasar malam nearby.
