Building drag race tracks for RM20 million in each state ‘not feasible’

AN allocation of RM20 million to every state for the purpose of building a drag race circuit, as proposed by former prime minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, would not be sufficient since the cost of maintenance would be high, and safety must also be given priority.

Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh said the allocation tabled in the previous Budget 2023 was never debated and approved in parliament, and in fact there was also no input from the Youth and Sports Ministry for the proposed project.
