KUALA LUMPUR: Adam Norrodin (pic) is happier with his performance in the CEV Moto2 Europe Championship at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo, Spain, on Sunday than the earlier race in Portugal although he was on the podium on both occasions.
The 22-year-old Liqui Moly Intact SIC Junior Team rider said things had improved a lot in his third-place finish in Valencia compared to one of the two races in the season opener in Estoril, Portugal two weeks ago.
“Firstly, I would like to thank my team for an amazing hard work this week, as well as my family who has always supported and prayed for my success. I am super thankful for my result and of course, there’s still a lot more to improve on in the next race in Barcelona, ” said Adam.
“We will keep this positive mindset and maintain in improving ourselves in the coming races.”
Adam finished third after clocking 14:43.890 while Spaniards Fermin Aldeguer (14:38.816) and Alonso Lopez (14:42.568), both from Boscoscuro Talent Team-Ciatti, took the first two places.
The back-to-back podium finishes also helped Adam to be placed third in the championship standings with 45 points, below Fermin (75) and Alonso (60), ahead of the third round at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on June 13.
Meanwhile, the Malaysian outfit’s rider Mohd Sharul Ezwan Sharil in the European Talent Cup category was disappointed after securing only 20th place in Race 1 and 16th in Race 2 yesterday.
“My biggest mistake was I overshot in the second turn, and I didn’t have enough pace to catch the group in front of me. In Catalunya, I will make sure to improve my riding and be more aggressive, ” he said.
In the Moto3 category, Mohd Azman Syarifuddin had to be satisfied with 12th and 19th places respectively in Races 1 and 2. — Bernama
