In the Wira category, Mohd Fakhrusy Syakirin Rostam completed the elements in style from clocking the fastest lap time on Saturday to grabbing pole and winning the 10 lap race today.
The AAP Mazoil Faito Racing rider exploited his pole position to leave contenders behind and master the race with total time 9:25.052s, 3.682s ahead of Mohd Arif Abdul Rahman in second place with 9:28.734s while Tengku Amirul Haffiruddin who now races under the banner of Pennzoil Racing Team finished third, 9:29.630s.
“It feels great to win my first Wira race! Following my success in the timed practice and qualifying, I was confident about winning so I just pushed as hard as I can even though the track was wet due to rain,” said the 16-year old who had bad memories crashing here at Stadium Hang Jebat last season.
He went on to add, “Racing in the wet was never an issue for me because I’ve trained in the wet before. So for the race just now I just focused on getting the holeshot and breaking away from the other riders. Thanks to the team for giving me great support,” he said.
