PETALING JAYA: Former Moto3 rider Husni Aizat Abdul Malik was killed in a road accident in his hometown in Kota Tinggi, Johor Baru.

In the 8.30am incident on Sunday, the 20-year-old is believed to have lost control of his Modenas Kriss motorcycle and rammed into an oncoming lorry from the opposite direction at Jalan Tanjung Buai, Teluk Sengat.

Husni was one of the promising young riders given a shot at making it big by Touchline SIC Ajo team at last year’s Malaysian Grand Prix in Sepang via the Moto3 wildcards.

He concluded the qualifying session by securing 31st spot on the starting grid. But his first stint on race day lasted only three laps, following a crash which forced him to retire.

In March, Husni was dropped by SIC-Ajo just weeks before he was due to start his second season in the Spanish National Championships (CEV) due to disciplinary issues.

In his debut season in the CEV, Husni collected only a point from nine races.
