Afiq is bracing for a busy weekend at the Inje Speedium International Circuit in Seoul. Not only is he aiming to keep his championship lead in the Formula Masters China Series, Afiq is also contesting Round Three of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia at the same time.
It’ll be a taxing schedule as Asia’s latest racing track will slot in an additional race in the Formula Masters China Series.
Race 9 has been rescheduled to this weekend after changes to the race programme at the previous meeting in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, last month, thus the 15-strong field of fledging talents will be doing four races altogether.
“There is no Hari Raya holiday for me this year. I even worked hard throughout the fasting month on my fitness, especially for this race weekend,” said Afiq, who will have his father, Yazid Mustafa, with him in South Korea.
“I’ll be competing in both series – Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia and Formula Masters China.
“It’s not about just competing ... I hope to win every race this weekend.
“If I can do that, it’ll give me a very good cushion for the championship title.”
The 21-year-old Afiq, who is under the Petronas development talent programme, is in the lead after eight races with a 23-point margin over closest rival Raj Bharath of India.
