The name in the title above needs no introduction. Here we have a video taken from the older episodes of BBC’s Top Gear (before the revival to the current format in 2002), featuring UK TV host Tiff Needell driving and reviewing two things that have Malaysia’s interest in it, our Sepang International Circuit and the iconic Proton Satria GTI.
As you can see, this video features the premature looks of the circuit as the grandstands in some sections were not even built yet, so it’s believed this video was taken around 1998-1999 prior to the inaugural Formula One race in Malaysia in 1999. Although the video here is not at its best quality, check out if Tiff loves these two Malaysian icons.
Interestingly, we got to know it was Tiff who set the fastest time on the Shah Alam circuit! Can anyone verify that?
