PETALING JAYA: Wira champion Mohd Hafiz Nor Azman is looking forward to making his CP115 debut in the season-opener Petronas AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championships at Stadium Batu Kawan in Penang this weekend.
While most riders his age would tremble at the prospect of having to go up against a grid comprising highly-experienced and seasoned riders, the 17-year-old actually relishes the challenge. He believes that only by racing against the big boys “can I make tremendous progress” like his idol Hafizh Syahrin Abdullah, who blazed through the Open-make classes while still in his teens.
Now riding for Petronas Syntium Moto Yamaha AHM, Hafiz will partner Mohd Rozaliman Zakaria and challenge the likes of reigning CP115 champion Mohd Amirul Ariff Musa (Givi Honda Yuzy Pachie Team), Ahmad Afif Amran (Petronas Yamaha-CKJ), Mohd Emir Firdaus Hasan (Suzuki FortyOne Racing) and Zaidy Mohd Zaifaizal (Motul Yamaha YY Pang) this weekend.
“I’m nervous ... but more excited than scared about my CP115 debut. There are a lot of talented riders. It will be a struggle but I just can’t wait to get the season started,” said Hafiz, who is also excited about the introduction of the “shootout” qualifying format.
