Mohd Zaqhwan Zaidi was fastest in the CP130 timed practice on Saturday.
PETALING JAYA: Mohd Zaqhwan Zaidi set the fastest time in the Petronas AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championships CP130 practice session in Temerloh on Saturday.
The Givi Honda Yuzy Pachie rider stopped the clock at 49.227 seconds, just 0.310 seconds ahead of Mohd Ramdan Mohd Rosli (Petronas Syntium Moto Yamaha AHM). Mohd Affendi Rosli (Harian Mettro Y-TEQ SCK Honda) was third quickest in 49.587.
The 18-year-old Zaqhwan, who crashed out in the last round in Kluang (Sept 21-22), is looking to make amends in Temerloh to improve his standings. He is currently fourth in the CP130 with 73 points.
“A good starting position is very important because there is limited room to overtake here.
“We struggled with the suspensions and grip because the surface was quite slippery. Hopefully, we can keep the momentum tomorrow for qualifying,” he said.
Meanwhile, Mohd Izzat Zaidi Salehan came in quickest in the CP115 practice sessions in 49.894 seconds.
