KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Super Series (MSS) rider Amaludin Abd Rahman, 42, died after being involved in an accident during the practice session for the first round of the MSS race at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) on Friday.
SIC, in the statement, said Amaludin, who participated as a novice under the Super Stock B category, was believed to have lost control of his machine at Turn 15 and crashed into the tyre barrier in the 4.30pm incident.
Amaludin was rushed to the Putrajaya Hospital, but succumbed to his injuries.
This is the third fatal accident at the circuit.
