im going this weekend (by fluke im in Singapore) and wondering how u get from airport to track (and back) - guessing cabs are easy enough on way there but a nightmare on the way back ?

Hi Flipper,

 

Here's the advice I give on my site:

 

"Stay in KL (or Bangi, Putrajaya, etc) on the Sunday night and avoid the stress of making it back to the airport on time after the race. Even if the traffic situation has slightly improved in 2013, we would still allow for a departure time that is at least four hours after a two-hour race cut-off e.g. a flight taking off at 10 pm or later for a 4 pm race start. It takes up two hours to reach the KLIA airport. Hotel rates are far from outrageous, so finish the weekend on good note."

 

I speak from experience!

Which Terminal are you coming into at KL? The LCCT or the Main Terminal? Basically are you coming in on Air Asia or someone else?

I think it's the same pain whether KLIA or LCCT. The bottleneck starts in the queuing system on the carpark at the track.

From the LCCT side the queues are much shorter and there is a dedicated bus on Race Weekend that takes 15-20 minutes. In fact, you can walk it in 30-40 minutes.
