Sar­i­fur­rizal said the mo­tor­ing ac­tiv­i­ties could en­cour­age youths to in­dulge in healthy ac­tiv­i­ties and pro­mote the anti- drugs cam­paign.

“Apart from pro­mot­ing a healthy life­style, the mo­tor­ing ac­tiv­i­ties could also pro­mote the ex­ist­ing mo­tor­ing club here – Awat-Awat Rid­ers Club,” he said.
