Mohd Ramdan Rosli believes it will take at least three years before he makes an impact in the Petronas Asia Road Racing Championship.
PETALING JAYA: Mohd Ramdan Rosli is very practical and down-to-earth when it comes to making it to the podium in motorcycle racing, especially in the faster SuperSports 600cc category.
The 17-year-old rider is only into his second season on the big bikes and he reckons it will take at least three years before he makes an impact in the Petronas Asia Road Racing Championship.
“I will have to fully develop my motorcycle racing skills and knowledge first before I am able to fight for a podium finish,” said Mohd Ramdan as he prepared for Round 4 of the Petronas Asia Road Racing Championship at the Suzuka International Circuit in Japan this weekend.
Mohd Ramdan pointed out the senior riders like Mohd Zamri Baba (Petronas Hong Leong Yamaha), Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman (Musashi Boon Siew Honda Racing) and Hafizh Syahrin Abdullah (Petronas Raceline Malaysia), all had to go through the mill before they could make an impact.
“This is my second full season competing in the SuperSports 600cc. So, I am not in a rush to prove anything just yet. Unlike underbone machines, adapting to a 600cc bike needs a longer time, usually a minimum of three years. My focus in every round is to just reduce my lap times, measure up to where I stand against the field and improve from there,” added the Klang-born rider.
