If you haven’t already noticed, the Achilles Formula Drift Event will be taking place this weekend (17th – 18th December 2011) and the venue, as many would remember from last year was at Dataran Merdeka. This year’s drift event will be held at the same place once more and come next week Monday, all will be in awe of the road outside Malaysia’s High court street where blackened tyre tread marks line the tarmac as the smell of spent tyres linger in the morning air. Be advised, this is not an event to be missed!

And so, as the city gears up for one of the hottest events in the motor sporting calendar, the organisers of the Formula Drift Malaysia today announced partial and full road closures that will take place from 15th – 20th December.

Safety is an utmost priority for this world-class event, and the planned road closures are scheduled to set up safety structures at the venue to ensure that the event will be held at the highest international standards for participants and spectators alike.

The organisers would like to inform road users that surrounding routes that may be affected during and prior to the event in order to provide the quickest and safest alternative routes during this period. Kindly refer to the map below and the schedule for more information:
