Daylight performance in a velodrome cycling track arena is essential to create splendid scenery for the athlete to perform during the event held. Therefore, a moveable kinetic roof according to the sunlight path on top of the building is important to implement. A specific requirement for cycling track is to avoid any shadow from the cyclist to steer clear any incident from happening during the game begins. The new technology of kinetic roof that integrate creativity with the sun movement would help to control the amount of sunlight that will enter the indoor area. The integration of kinetic roof to be placed at the top of the sports indoor arena would help to reduce the electricity consumption for that building as it integrates to control the amount of light to pass through into the private area. This study is divided into two parts; the analysis on the preference of local velodrome in Malaysia, which is in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan and 3D model daylight analysis using VELUX. Based on the analysis, the implementation of the kinetic roof in velodrome design in Malaysia will be able to let the required amount of daylight appear for the internal area. While passive skylight that integrated at the current velodrome was not capable of controlling the daylight and it is dependable on the weather condition.
