KOTA TINGGI: Former Moto3 rider Husni Aizat Abdul Malik (pic) was killed in a road accident in his hometown here after his motorcycle rammed into an oncoming lorry from the opposing direction.
The 20-year-old was believed to have lost control of his Modenas Kriss machine and collided with the heavy vehicle at Jalan Tanjung Buai, Teluk Sengat, on Sunday.
Kota Tinggi OCPD Supt Rahmat Othman said that Husni Aizat was on the way home from Pasir Gudang when the incident happened.
He was pronounced dead on the way to the Felda Air Tawar 2 clinic while the lorry driver escaped unhurt.
“My son has been staying in Kuala Lumpur and told us he wanted to come back home to spend time with us,” Husni Aizat’s father Abdul Malik Ali, 48, said, adding that Husni Aizat was the second child of six siblings.
He was buried at the Air Tawar 1 Muslim burial ground.
Husni Aizat was one of the promising young riders given a shot at making it big by
Touchline SIC Ajo team at last year’s Malaysian Grand Prix in Sepang via the Moto3 wildcards.
He concluded the qualifying session by securing 31st spot on the starting grid.
His first stint on race day, however, lasted only three laps, following a crash which forced him to retire.
In March, Husni was dropped by SIC-Ajo just weeks before he was due to start his second season in the Spanish National Championships (CEV) due to disciplinary issues.
In his debut season in the CEV, Husni collected only a point from nine races.
