the 2011 public holiday and school holiday calendar are available at the following link:
i would like to start working on the 2011 my-kart calendar covering the DRIVERS series, the TEAMS series and any other one off events. please see my post on the topic of fixing calendars in advance and not changing it during the year: http://club.my-kart.org/node/3452
- DRIVERS series usually on first saturday of the month; unless the following:
- avoid clashes with major public holidays like CNY, HariRaya etc
- avoid clashes with major motorsports events like F1, MotoGP, MME etc
- avoid clashing with long weekends / school holiday weekends (when people usually have weddings to attend and outstation trips)
- avoid having two consecutive DRIVERS series rounds too close to each other
- avoid official racing events during ramadhan and about two weeks after raya
- try spreading the times for the DRIVERS series, TEAMS series, and perhaps even the CK125 series etc
- try to avoid clashing with other karting events that my-kart drivers may participate in

According to the Sepang website, http://www.malaysiangp.com.my/story/sepang-circuits-2011-ev… the following events are planned (avoid clashing with F1, Malaysian Super Series, Super GT, Merdeka Millennium Endurance Race, MotoGP and Sepang 1000km):
F1: 8th - 10th April
MSS: 7th-8th May
Super GT: 17th - 19th June
MSS: 25th-26th Jun
MSS: 29th-31th Jul
MMER: 15th - 17th September
MSS: 24th-25th Sep
MotoGP: 21st - 23rd October
MSS: 18th-20th Nov
Sepang 1000km: 1st - 3rd December
I've also obtained the KBS (kementerian belia & sukan) Karting dates from CityKarting (as 2011 organisers) as follows:
26th - 27th March 2011 - RD 1 - Shah Alam
21st - 22nd May 2011 - RD 2 - Sepang
2nd - 3rd July 2011 - RD 3 - Langkawi
1st - 2nd Oct 2011 - RD 4 - Shah Alam
26th - 27th Nov 2011 - RD 5 - Sepang
Our rounds will only clash with the KBS round 3 - which i think is ok since it is held in Langkawi. I cannot adjust the calendar now without making changes to many other DRIVERS series rounds. So we will keep the 2 July race.
all DRIVERS series event days are saturday morning from 0730hrs to 1330hrs.
your help & collaboration needed
pls help collaborate to improve this calendar so we have a robust plan for 2011 and to avoid any further changes to our calendar.
we would like to have the return of the TEAMS series (enduro format) in 2011. So will have to slot in the event dates into the calendar. please help me suggest the TEAMS series calendar.
Feel free to also update the google calendar (search for my-kart by fazz).
also start planning your 2011 calendars.
