Zaqhwan takes it slow and steady

PETALING JAYA: Boon Siew Honda Racing Team’s Mohd Zaqhwan Zaidi decided to play it safe in the first run of the Covid-19 disrupted Malaysia Superbike Championship at the Sepang International Circuit.

Zaqhwan laid down the benchmark for the MSBK1000 class with the quickest lap of 2:09.153 in free practice yesterday. It was a far cry from his personal best of 2:06.023 at the 5.542km circuit.

“I was just focused on getting back in sync with the bike. I just need to shake off the rust and settle down to enjoy my first race, ” said Zaqhwan.“We were not pushing for time because the weather was unpredictable. It was dry in the morning and we had a drizzle and cooler temperatures in the afternoon.”
