It’s another day of adrenaline rush at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) and a victory for Azroy Hakeem Anuar of BOON SIEW HONDA RACING TEAM in the MSBK1000 A Class, Race 1 of Round 2, Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSBK).

The nerve-wrecking battle between the best took a grand start when Zaqhwan who began at the second spot on the grid fled to P1 seconds after the race flagged off. While Zaqhwan held on to the position for one lap, he was then superseded by Azlan and Azroy in lap two.

From then on, the fight for the finest spot was between the duo who went on a chase for three laps before Azroy who made his debut in MSBK1000 A Class in Round 2 finally flaunted his manoeuvring skills and took charge. He took a slide ahead of Azlan and kept on to his speed from the fifth lap onwards while Azlan held his pace at P2.

Behind them, Zaqhwan was in a neck-to-neck battle with Kasma who was relentlessly pushing himself upward. While Zaqhwan was adamant to keep up at P3, the pressure mounted and he finally gave in to Kasma in lap six. Kasma at P3 was not satisfied. He went on to strike Azlan who was ahead of him at P2. At the final lap, Kasma took over P2 while Azroy went on to create history.

Azroy made it to the chequered flag at 21’37:503s.

Commenting on the race, Azroy said, “The win was unexpected but a very satisfying one. I had better pace than Azlan and I tried my best to remain consistent throughout each lap. I thought it was Kasma at the back but it seemed like he was stuck with Azlan.”

“To be honest, it was quite a tiring feat. The ten-lap race seemed too long and my hands started to ache but I managed to stay on and complete the race. We shall see how it works tomorrow.”

Kasma Daniel Kasmayudin of YAMAHA GEN BLU RACING TEAM ASEAN made it second on the podium at 21’38:383s.

Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman of HORIZON RACING TEAM came in third at 21’39:552s.
