PETALING JAYA: Yamalube AHM rider Mohd Iskandar Raduan will be out to make amends in Round Three of the Petronas AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championships at Gong Badak in Terengganu this weekend.
The Seremban-born rider had a disastrous outing in Round Two in Muar (April 27) where he was forced to retire from the CP130 race after five laps due to engine failure.
Iskandar is currently 12th in the CP130 standings on 10 points. Ahmad Afif Amran of Petronas Yamaha CKJ leads the championship standings with 33 points.
“We had an unfortunate run in Muar despite setting a decent pace during the practice sessions. We had hoped for a top-five finish but a broken engine hampered our efforts. It was disappointing but we have to move on and learn from our mistakes,” said Iskandar.
He said Terengganu is the perfect venue to redeem himself as the track is wider than those at other venues. His podium finish at the track in 2012 also serves as motivation.
“It is one of my favourite tracks and there are lots of opportunities for overtaking. However that does not mean we can expect an easy weekend. The CP130 race is extremely competitive and the slightest mistake could cost us.”
