KL City Grand Prix 2015: Announcement from the organisers

Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) and GT Global Race (M) Sdn Bhd are hosting the inaugural KL City Grand Prix from the 7th till 9th August 2015.
The race circuit will begin in front of Suria KLCC beside the Petronas Towers and proceed anti clockwise around the 3.2km circuit through Jalan Ampang, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Raja Chulan and Jalan Perak before heading back up Jalan P Ramlee to complete the circuit.
Laying And Dismantling Of A Temporary FIA-compliant Street Circuit
A temporary FIA approved race circuit is being built on the streets of Kuala Lumpur. Construction takes place at night between 10pm and 6 am the next morning. Up until the week of the race, and during the period to dismantle following the race, access to all properties in and around the circuit should not be affected any more than what is currently experienced for normal construction that takes place regularly on Kuala Lumpur roads for building construction and road upgrading.
During the 2015 KL City Grand Prix event on 7th to 9th August
During the race day, certain sections of 5 roads (Jalan P Ramlee, Jalan Ampang, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Raja Chulan and Jalan Perak) that make up the race-track need to be closed for traffic during race time i.e. from 6 am till 6 pm on the following days: 
·            Friday 7 August
·            Saturday 8 August
·            Sunday 9 August
In the period of these 3 days, from 6 am onwards, contractors will commence closing the affected roads and progressively closing gates and access to properties on these roads. By 7.30am all public and non-race vehicles will be cleared from the track, and the roads will not be available for use by the general public. This is an important part of the safety protocol for racing.
Although traffic and access plans have been focused on minimising disruption as the highest priority, it is inevitable that during the later stages of preparation and during the event, KL will be a very busy place. With more than 100,000 people expected at the race, and all the other things going on around our city, we actively encourage people to leave their cars at home, or park and use our public transport system to avoid traffic jams, namely the following stations:   
·            LRT stations (KLCC and Dang Wangi)
·            Monorail stations (Bukit Nanas and Raja Chulan)

The organisers of the 2015 KL City Grand Prix would like to thank you for your patience, and offer our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.
