PETALING JAYA: After scoring his first-ever podium finish in the Wira EpG category of the Petronas Sprinta AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championships this season, Mohd Iskandar Raduan is ready to make an even bigger impact in the fourth leg in Sepang this weekend.
The Eveready-Raceline rider took over as the championship leader from Shell KF Yamaha's Mohd Nazari Mohd Latif after he was declared the winner in the third round in Batu Kawan last month.
Iskandar became the winner after Mohd Izuaf Sirun (Total Elf Beng Racing) and Mohd Adli Salihin (UTM Racing) were disqualified for unsporting conducts.
Having 25 points added to his tally, the 20-year old Yamaha rider now has 54 points – one point more than Nazari. Third in the standings on 36 points is rookie Mohd Faiz Nawawi of SKF Enduro SCK Racing.
Iskandar said his task in Sepang was to pull away from the pack in the championship standings with another podium finish.
“But it won't be easy because Ahmad Fazrul Sham (Shell Advance Harian Metro Maju Motor), Mohd Firdaus Jamil (MOS Ah Hong Yamaha) and Mohd Zaki Mohd Aziz are among those who could spoil my plan,” said Iskandar.
