The World Endurance Championship action continues with the Sepang 8 Hours. Clearwater Racing, Bentley M-Sport and Ferrari have confirmed their marquee line-ups, making this year’s race one of the deepest and most exciting editions, and you can enjoy the action when watching live on a standard or HD TV, or streaming the event to a mobile device with a Free trial.
2019 Sepang 8 Hours Preview
The Sepang 8 Hours Endurance race is held annually at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia. It was first conducted in 2000 and was known as the Malaysia Merdeka Millennium Endurance Race with the name change occurring last year. In the early years, the race was dominated by the locals, but that all changed in 2008 with the Singapore based Team Porsche Club Singapore raising the checkered flag. Since then, only one Malaysian team has won the race, led by Tunku Hammam who recorded his second victory in the event.
Ferrari have won the past two editions of the Sepang 8 hours and look well placed to do it again courtesy of Clearwater Racing, who have been the team behind Ferrari’s two victories in the event. It should be a fascinating contest, and perhaps the most intriguing story line involves Belgian driver Laurens Vanthoor, who is back behind the wheel after a layoff from an injury sustained from a crash at Misano, which saw him fracture his hip and leg. He will drive with Stephane Ortelli, with those two combining to win the 2013 FIA GT Series Title.
The Sepang 8 Hours has joined with the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour (Australia), Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca 8 Hours (USA) and Total 24 Hours of Spa (Belgium) to form the first-ever global GT3 series, and be named the Intercontinental GT Challenge. The race has also been kind to Australians in recent times, with two Aussies a part of team’s winning the race, the latest when Craig Baird led Clearwater to the first of their successive wins in 2013.
