Azroy, Amirul to lead Team Yuzy

New Straits Times - - Sport -

MALAYSIAN Un­der­bone class rid­ers Azroy Ha­keem Anuar and Mohd Amirul Ariff Musa have been con­firmed for Team Yuzy Honda Viet­nam Rac­ing team for this week­end’s FIM Asia Road Rac­ing Cham­pi­onship (ARRC) in Jo­hor.

Azroy and Amirul are trained by for­mer GP rider Shahrol Yuzy Ah­mad Zaini, whose coach­ing cred­its in­clude World Su­perS­ports rider Zul­fahmi Khairud­din and two-time Asian cham­pion Mohd Zaqh­wan Zaidi, as he works with Team Yuzy Honda Viet­nam Rac­ing for a third con­sec­u­tive year.

“We have been work­ing with Honda Viet­nam over the past two years, but this sea­son we have in­creased the level of our part­ner­ship,” Shahrol Yuzy said.

Join­ing Azroy and Amirul is ARRC new­comer Cao Viet Nam while the Pro­duc­tion 250cc class will be rep­re­sented by Viet­nam’s Bui Duy Thong.

Mean­while, Maju Mo­tor have elected to field two teenagers, Mohd Akid Aziz and Mohd Haziq Mohd Fairues, in the Un­der­bone 150cc cat­e­gory.

Akid, 19, is the de­fend­ing cham­pion in the Malaysian Cub Prix CP115 class while 16-year-old Haziq is one of the youngest rid­ers on the Asian Un­der­bone grid and has man­aged to net two podium fin­ishes with one be­ing a win in the ARRC’s UB130 cat­e­gory last year.

“Akid and Haziq per­formed to our ex­pec­ta­tions and it is time for them to be ex­posed to the Asian se­ries,” said Team Maju prin­ci­pal Yong Ying Hoe.

“Even though the cham­pi­onship is in­tro­duc­ing the 150cc class this sea­son, the team feel that it will be good ex­po­sure for these two young rid­ers.”

Round one of the 2017 FIM ARRC will take place at the Jo­hor Cir­cuit in Pasir Gu­dang this week­end. Farah Azharie
