Hi, everybody.. I’m a local KL guy who never missed a M’sian GP since 1999. If any of you here need any help / assistance / while in KL / Sepang I can be contacted at +60166792979 via WhatsApps/Viber or twitter @awizul (my avatar is a picture of Red Bull in black & white) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll help as much as I possibly could during the race weekend or even if u’re here for vacation etc.
Honestly I’ve never been there but I can give a few opinion. I’d suggest seat in block J-M as you may catch some overtaking in Turn 9 and 15 as F1 cars will go flat out in front of F Grand stand. You may also see cars going to pit-lane and the rear of starting grid.
The best part here you can take picture of the action with the famous umbrella-canopy at the background especially when the cars are slowing down at the pit-lane entry!
Practically drivers won’t stay far from the track. But since there’re limited no of hotels in Sepang area, some might stay within the vicinity like Avani Sepang Goldcoast, Avillion Hotel Port Dickson (ROS used to acclimatized here), Palace Of The Golden Horses Hotel, of coz Sama-Sama Hotel KLIA, Caterham used to stay at Tune Hotel, LCCT, Pullman Putrajaya, Marriot Putrajaya.
While in KL City Centre where they’ll normally have some promotional events are like Mandarin Oriental, Renaissance, JW Marriot Bukit Bintang and Intercontinental Jalan Ampang.
I’ll post an update if i hv any info for 2015 race.
