    1. When did batu tiga track first opened,and when close?
    - Originally known as Batu Tiga (or Selangor due to the palace overlooking the circuit), the circuit first opened in 1968 as a 2.1 mile track. The circuit was closed in 1977 after an accident killed six children, although it later reopened after improvements were carried out. The circuit was modified in 1985 with the addition of turn 11 to the present length of 2.295 miles. I was later renamed as Batu Tiga Speedway Circuit owned by Kenanga Sensasi Sdn Bhd and finally as Shah Alam Motor Paradise (SAMP) before demolised in 2003 by authority to build housing project.

    2. Wat races [sanctioned] were held there,and which year?
    - Many races help such as Grand Prix motorcycle racing 125 cc, 250 cc and 500 cc. Also some private clubs gathered for racing Superbikes, street tuned cars, Saturday Night Spirit events. The track floored many famous cars such as Nissan Skyline GT-R, Mazda RX-7, Impreza WRX, Supra, Mitsubishi 3000 GTO and even Ferrari F355. Famous bikers stepped into this circuit, such as the legendary Randy Mamola, Michael Doohan, Wayne Rainey and many more. Even Malaysian race drivers such as Jimmy Low, Ron Lim, Karamjit Singh @ The Flying Singh. The track also featured in Thunderbolt (1995) Jackie Chan's movie invint real race drivers from different countries volunteered to travel and participate in the racing sequences. Thunderbolt was a box office hit in Hong Kong, grossing HK $45,647,210 in its theatrical run. The racing circuit has been demolished and non-operational as it's replaced by Sepang International F1 circuit near KLIA.

    3. When did pasir gudang track first opened?
    - Built in 1986, the Johor Circuit is the first international class motor racing circuit outside of the Klang Valley. It initially catered to the growing local enthusiasts but soon gained recognition not only regionally, but also internationally. Although it was then a comparatively new circuit, its challenging 3.86km configuration soon attained respect and admiration amongst the racing fraternity. In 1990, just four years after it was built, the circuit was upgraded to the strict FIM World GP homologation requirements. In 1998, it hosted the World Motorcycle Grand Prix Championship. Ever since then, it has been hosting regular local and regional events. The Johor Racing Circuit provides a world-class venue for international racing events. Among the events hosted yearly are the World Superbike, World Endurance, and the Johor Race Series for Cars and Bikes. In 1998, FIM gave an honour to this circuit to host one of the legs of the World Motorcycle Championship. It is one of only two legs being held in Asia.
