PETALING JAYA: The rainy conditions failed to dampen Mohd Zaqhwan Zaidi’s spirit as he led all the way to win Race Two of the MSBK 1000 category in the Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSBK).

The Boon Siew Honda Racing Team rider dominated the 10-lap race to finish the race with time of 25:21.870 at the Sepang International Circuit yesterday.

Yamaha Racing Team Asean rider Kasma Daniel Kasmayuddin came in second with 25:26.311 while ONEXOX TKKR Racing’s Mohd Ramdan Rosli came in third 25:58.785.

In Race Three, the sun came out and it did not favour Zaqhwan as he settled for third with a time of 24:38.193.

ONEXOX TKKR Racing Team’s Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman, who was struggling with traction throughout the weekend, got his bike spot on when he finished first with a time of 24:18.716.

His win was made easier when Kasma and MME Racing Team Malaysia’s Ahmad Daniel Haiqal ended on the gravel.

The three riders had swapped leads around the circuit, but an aggressive move by Kasma at Turn 6 on lap six saw the Yamaha rider crashing into Daniels’ bike.

The incident ended his race and led the race stewards to disqualify Kasma for unruly conduct.

Without the two younger riders in the leading group, Azlan had an easier time maintaining his pace at the front.

“Our team really had a tough time setting up our bike this weekend. It’s a brand new BMW S1000RR and I’ve only rode on it three times, including this weekend,” said Azlan.

“Things finally clicked into place for Race 3 and I was able to get into rhythm.”

A distant 13 seconds behind, Azlan’s teammate Ramdan came in second with a time of 24:32.591.

Azlan currently leads the MSBK 1000 class with 58 points. Despite his disqualification, Kasma is still second overall with 45 points.
