Edit: it's indeed called 'Sportscar Experience'. From dukevideo.com:
"The Sports Car Experience is a series of in-car sequences filmed around top race courses, including the famous Le Mans, as seen from inside the top-level sportscars often during actual races. Your drivers include Derek Bell, Hans Stuck, Jacky Ickx, Nick Mason, Stefan Bellof and Richard Lloyd. Get to know the techniques required to master not only Le Mans ('85) but Hockenheim ('85), Silverstone ('84), Spa Francorchamps ('85) Kuala Lumpur ('85) and Fuji ('85). Experience the thrills of high-speed dicing from the sharp end of World Endurance Championship racing, and marvel at the way the world's finest master the curves of the circuits that sort out the true champions."

The following day it was over 100 degrees and I wandered out to the esses before the finish line. All the spectators were on the outside of the circuit but over to my left on the infield was a single tree under which were four Indians complete with turbans. I noticed they were shouting to me so I wandered over which resulted in the following conversation.
" What are you doing out there in the heat.....you should be under a tree like us"
" I am going to the esses to shoot pictures"
" Who are you ?...................Mr Bean ? "
I never knew Rowan was so well known in Malaysia !
Finally for those who like crazy facts the circuit manager at Shah Allam was Ying Fah Yoong, Alex Yoon's father and at that race meeting Alex was racing another DTM Mercedes and was only about 18 at that time.
