Wednesday, 23 March 2022 – Dorna Sports is delighted to confirm that Sepang International Circuit will remain on the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship calendar until at least 2024, with all parties already in discussion to extend the agreement until 2026.

Dorna Sports is also proud to announce a new partnership with PETRONAS that will see the progressive Malaysian energy company become the title sponsor. Starting from 2022, the event will be officially named the PETRONAS GRAND PRIX OF MALAYSIA, ensuring the brand will have a key presence in the world championship.

For PETRONAS, whose Fluid Technology Solutions™ is proven within the global motorsports arena, the title sponsorship is a scale up from its existing partnership with Dorna Sports as the Official Fuel Supplier to the Moto2™ and Moto3™ grid.

On the calendar since 1999, Sepang is a fan and rider favourite just outside Malaysian metropolis Kuala Lumpur, set against the backdrop of one of the most spectacular cities in Asia. Sepang International Circuit is spectacular too, with two long straights, a combination of contrasting corners and a stunning main grandstand complex, the silhouette of which has become iconic over the more than 20 motorcycle Grands Prix staged at the venue.

This new agreement between Sepang International Circuit and Dorna Sports confirms the future of a Grand Prix in one of the sport’s biggest and most passionate markets, and at one of its most-loved venues.
