Honda Asia-Dream Racing rider Mohd Zaqhwan Zaidi is one of a kind. Just three months after a fracture on his right wrist, he defied doctors’ orders to zoom his way to the 1,000cc Asia Superbike victory in Sepang this year.

The daredevil rider made a pit stop at the Menara Star yesterday and spoke to StarSport’s T. AVINESHWARAN on his adrenaline-pumping experiences and challenges in the world of motorsport.
