Adam hopes to be in­spired af­ter re­turn home

New Straits Times - - Sport -

MALAYSIAN Moto3 rider Adam Nor­rodin hopes his re­turn home af­ter the fourth race in Spain will pro­vide re­newed spirit go­ing into the fifth race at Le Mans, France this week­end.

“Af­ter Jerez, I trav­elled back to Malaysia, which was the first time since the be­gin­ning of the year.

“Af­ter some dif­fi­cult race week­ends, it was great to spend some time with my fam­ily and I think it has helped me to find my fo­cus again,” said Adam.

Feel­ing re­laxed and re­freshed, Adam will look to earn points at Le Mans af­ter col­lect­ing only six points in four races which puts him in 19th spot in the Moto3 World Stand­ings.

“We have to come back fight­ing at Le Mans be­cause for the last three races, we haven’t scored any points and this is not ac­cept­able.

“I am ready to push and find the ex­tra that we need to be more com­pet­i­tive and se­cure a solid race re­sult this week­end.”

Adam’s SIC Racing Team team­mate Ayumu Sasaki will join him at the Bu­gatti Grand Prix Race Cir­cuit this week­end. He is in 21st po­si­tion with six points.

Malaysian Moto2 rider Hafizh Syahrin is also aim­ing to im­prove his stand­ing this week­end.

For Hafizh, the weather is the fac­tor that will make or break his race in France.

“I don’t know what to ex­pect but I am hop­ing for full wet (con­di­tions) if it is go­ing to rain.

“The in-be­tween wet and dry con­di­tions will def­i­nitely make it more dif­fi­cult but what­ever it is, I am gun­ning to do well here and give my best,” said Hafizh.

The Petronas Race­line Malaysia rider is cur­rently 13th with 14 points af­ter four races.

Com­pa­triot Khairul Id­ham Pawi of Idemitsu Honda Team Asia has yet to col­lect a sin­gle point.
