Fakhrusy Syakirin Rostam stayed true to his words to claim a front row start and win the WIRA race. However, it was not an easy feat for the AAP Mazoil Armstrong Motorsport rider who finished the race within 7’12.099s.
Rival, Hafiz Nor Azman (Team MOS Track Pro Yamaha racing) was hot on his heels throughout the 10 lap race just waiting for a slip up but the opportunity never came and he had to be content coming in second with total time 7’14.027s while Mohd Hafizuddin Azahar (Unisel Gems) came in third, 7’19.770s.
Winning today automatically puts Fakhrusy on top of the WIRA overall standings with 38 points. Hafiz sits in second place with 36 points and Batu Kawan winner, Mohd Izzat Zaidi Salehan (Motul Yamaha YY Pang Racing) who did not qualify for the final holds third, 25 points.
Overjoyed to realize his goals, Fakhrusy commented, “I am really happy to win the race today. Thanks to the team, my Honda was in perfect condition and that allowed me to focus on improving my riding here in Terengganu. It was reflected during the race when I was able to create a gap from Hafiz was very fast. Hopefully, I can repeat similiar success and maintain my lead in the WIRA overall standings in the upcoming round,” he said.
