Of course, all participants must be fully vaccinated, and that means 14 days after your second dose of Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac vaccines (or 28 days after single shot J&J and CanSino vaccines). You’ll have to sign an indemnity form and entry is at your own risk. The Pitstop Cafe will be open throughout and no outside food and beverages are allowed.

SIC says that the event is organised as a recognition to the rising popularity of PEVs in Malaysia and to promote environmentally friendly and clean mobility, in line with SIC’s initiative to encourage sustainable living in sports and reduce carbon emissions.

SIC had previously opened the track to cyclists and they’ve also hosted running events before.
