Six-Round US Legend Cars Malaysia Championship Coming This March
The US Legend Cars Malaysia Championship is set to kick off this March with six rounds lined up for the year. All rounds will take place at Perak’s T-City Gopeng Motor Speedway – currently the only purpose-built oval circuit in Malaysia.
This year’s championship will feature an Arrive-and-Drive Legend Car class for amateur and professional drivers, and the Bandolero class for children between the ages of 8 and 15.
This is the first time the Legend Car and Bandolero Car classes will be introduced as a full-fledged championship since its introduction in 2018.
The Legend Car class will be divided into three categories for novice, national and international drivers, while the Bandolero Car class will strictly be for novice drivers. To date, the championship has attracted entries from Malaysia, Australia, China and Hong Kong.
The Legend Car class will see drivers competing in identical race cars with a minimum car and driver weight of 590 kg, and powered a factory-stock Yamaha FJ1200 engine rated at 132 bhp.
The Bandolero class meanwhile, will feature cars powered by 30 bhp 570cc Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engines with a minimum combined car and driver weight of 340 kg.
All Legends and Bandolero cars are manufactured by US Legend Cars International, Inc. and the Malaysian championship is sanctioned by INEX Malaysia (INEX MAL), an affiliate of INEX which is the international governing body that supports, promotes, and manages all sanctioned race track and racing programmes.
