Farres has Mini GP World Series in mind as he continues to shine at home

PETALING JAYA: Farres Putra Fadhill (pic) continues to make his mark in the FIM MiniGP Malaysia Series.

Farres blazed the track to win race two in Round 3 at the Sepang International Circuit yesterday to improve his position in the standings.

He stamped his class when he clocked a time of 19:05.474 while Akil Abdullah finished second again with a time of 19:07.362. Farish Hafiy ended the race third with a time of 19:08.591 in the 20-lap race.

In the first race, the Selangor boy finished fourth with a time of 19:22.631 behind winner Farish (19:10.365), Akif Abdullah (19:11.298) and Adib Arsyad (19:11.476).

His closest rival Emil Idzhar Ezuan had a torrid time as he finished ninth in the first race and did not finish in the second.

Farres hopes he will remain consistent in Round 4 today and keep himself in contention for the FIM Mini GP World Series.

The top three riders in the FIM MiniGP Malaysia Series will qualify for the FIM MiniGP World Series finale in Valencia next month.

“In the second race, everyone was quick, and I needed to be consistent with my laps and timing to get the results,” said Farres.

“The win certainly felt good, but I should not take things easy.

“I’ve to thank the mechanics for making sure the bike was good today.

“For the next race, I must make sure that I remain in the front row and just be focused on the track.”

After Round 3, Farres leads the standings with 108 points and followed by Farish (97), Akif (93) while Emil dropped from second to fourth with 82 points.
