KUALA LUMPUR: Its mission impossible for Givi Honda Yuzy Pachie rider Mohd Zaqhwan Zaidi to clinch the PETRONAS AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championship title at Shah Alam this weekend but team principal Shahrol Yuzy Zaini still believes he can pull it off.

Despite being a title showdown between senior riders Ahmad Fuad Baharudin and Norizman Ismail in the CP130 category with only one point adrift, Zaqhwan still has a chance to spoil the party for the top two riders.

Being placed third in the championship standings with 111 points, Zaqhwan trails by 17 points behind leader Fuad with 128 points. It will take Zaqhwan to win this weekend’s race and having the top two riders finish ninth or lower.

“Undeniably, Zaqhwan has a very slim chance of making it but it is imperative that we never give up until the championship is over. Anything can happen during this weekend’s race,” said Yuzy who is convinced that anyone can win the season finale at Shah Alam Go-Kart Circuit.

“This is the first time we will be racing at this venue at Shah Alam. With a very demanding track of 13 turns it will be difficult for all riders and mechanics. Also the erratic weather will certainly be a factor. 

Hence, there is no reason why Zaqhwan cannot perform this weekend as he has the makings of a champion and is certainly very talented. He is fast and dedicated to deliver a strong pace,” added Yuzy.
