A true daredevil


Good memories: Zaqhwan Zaidi celebrating on the podium after winning the SuperSports 600cc overall title in the Asia Road Racing Championship in 2016. — AZHAR MAHFOF / The Star

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. If that’s not enough, the 24-year-old oozed class with his partner in the Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race last week to finish 11th – with both doing four hours each! 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.
