PETALING JAYA: Malaysian Mohd Zamri Baba has been forced to withdraw from the Petronas Asia Road Racing Championship (ARRC) pre-season test after breaking his leg during a dirt track training session last weekend.
Zamri, a SuperSports 600cc title contender, will miss the two-day test, which begins at the Sepang International Circuit on Tuesday. The Musashi Boon Siew Honda rider is expected to be out of action for several weeks.
“It’s unfortunate Zamri broke his leg just days before the pre-season test. On the bright side, the doctor’s report has been encouraging. Zamri is now in rehabilitation and the team management will give him as much time he needs to make a full recovery,” said Rodney Peh, the Musashi Boon Siew Honda team manager.
The 30-year-old Zamri was disappointed to miss the test sessions.
“The doctors advised me against taking unnecessary risks. So, I will take this time to rest and get myself as fit as possible and return for the first race in the best shape possible,” said Zamri.
With the exception of Zamri, the rest of the SuperSports 600 contenders like Musashi Boon Siew Honda’s Makoto Tamada and Mohd Zaqhwan Zaidi, Kawasaki’s Katsuaki Fujiwara and Yamaha’s Ahmad Fuad Baharudin will be taking part in the test.
Test sessions for the Underbone and Asian Dream Cup riders will also be held. The season is expected to start in April.
