PETALING JAYA: Mohd Ramdan Rosli is ready to take another step in his learning curve when he competes in the Moto3 class of the Spanish National Championship (CEV) this year.
Ramdan, who will race for the Petronas AHM team, follows in the footsteps of Moto2 rider Hafizh Syahrin Abdullah, who also came through the Petronas Talent Development Programme.
Ramdan was “discovered” by team manager Kenny Chua as a prodigious 12-year-old and they have since developed a strong working relationship.
The 18-year-old Ramdan has grabbed titles at the national level (Petronas AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championship) and made waves at the regional level (Petronas Asia Road Racing Championship) as well.
He has also raced in China, Taiwan, Indonesia and Australia.
“Moving to the Spanish championship is a huge deal for me. I’m grateful to be given this opportunity by Petronas and the team. I know it won’t be easy as I have no experience in Moto3, but I’m really looking forward to the new challenges,” said Ramdan.
Ramdan, who has completed two tests at the Valencia Circuit and Aragon Circuit in Spain, will make his race bow on April 6.
