PETALING JAYA: Musashi Boon Siew Honda Racing’s Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman continued his fine form in the first leg of the Petronas Asia Road Racing Championship by claiming a place in the front row at the Sepang International Circuit yesterday.

The 29-year-old earned himself the second spot in today’s SuperSports 600cc grid after posting a lap time of 1:05.654.

Japanese Katsuaki Fujiwara of BEET Kawasaki Racing clocked 1:05.569 for the fastest time while Mohd Zamri Baba, riding a Yamaha, was third quickest in 1:05.901.
