From time to time, visionary billionaires decide they want to invest a lot of money into fulfilling a dream. For Singapore billionaire, Peter Lim, this dream means building an FIA-compliant circuit, in the Iskandar region, in the southern part of Malaysia, very close to the Singapore border.
It will reportedly measure around 4.5 kilometers, and it will be drawn up by a yet-unnamed designer, to be part of a larger complex, which will be known as ‘Motorsport City’. The total investment is estimated to be around the $1.2 billion mark, and Lim’s aim is for the track to be awarded the FIA Grade 2 certification, according to

Once it gets built, it will be Malaysia’s second F1-approved circuit, and the third large and ultra-modern facility in the area, after the Sepang circuit, as well as the one in Singapore, which is currently the only circuit in the world allowed to host an F1 night race.
