PETALING JAYA: Mohd Zaki Mohd Aziz will be out to complete a hat-trick of wins in the fifth-leg of the Petronas Sprinta AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championship in Sepang this weekend.
Zaki, who collected 25 points in Malacca last month, is not planning on resting on his laurels.
The Top-N Racing rider swept to back-to back victories at the Johor Circuit and in Malacca and is currently third in the standings with 50 points.
Ahmad Fazrul Sham of Team Shell Advance Harian Metro Maju Motor is the championship leader with 65 points while Mohd Zamri Baba, who is representing Team MOS Ah Hong Yamaha, is second with 61 points.
“It is not impossible to win in Sepang this weekend as I had won the race there last year ahead of Mohd Firdaus Manan and Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman. I hope that experience will stand me in good stead,” said Zaki, who was second overall last year.
“However, I will be keeping a close eye on Ahmad Fazrul, Mohd Zamri and also Azlan Shah as they are my closest rivals. Ahmad Fazrul and Mohd Zamri have been pretty consistent, having stepped up onto the winners’ podium three times in four races while Azlan Shah is a talented rider who does not give up easily.
“There are four more rounds to go and I intend to keep up my good run.”
