BHPetrol has part­nered with mo­tor­cy­cle club Tabuan Rac­ing to form a rac­ing team that will de­but in this sea­son’s Na­tional Cub Prix Cham­pi­onship.

“This col­lab­o­ra­tion is in line with our ob­jec­tives to en­hance the im­age of BHPetrol among mo­tor­cy­cle own­ers. Apart from pro­mot­ing the BHPetrol Dash range of mo­tor­cy­cle lu­bri­cants, we want to cre­ate a plat­form for lo­cal tal­ents to thrive in the mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing scene,” said BHPetrol gen­eral man­ager of com­mer­cial in­dus­try and lu­bri­cants busi­ness Az­izul Azily Ah­mad.

The rac­ing se­ries will start on March 12 to 13 at Malaysia Agro Ex­po­si­tion Park Serdang, Se­lan­gor.

This will be fol­lowed by eight more rounds in Pe­nang, Ke­lan­tan and Tereng­ganu be­fore the fi­nal round on Nov 19 and 20 in Taip­ing, Perak.

BHPetrol’s spon­sor­ship is in the form of BHPetrol Dash 800 fully syn­thetic en­gine oil, fuel and cash.

BHPetrol deputy gen­eral man­ager of lu­bri­cants Soh Lip Peng said BHPetrol Dash mo­tor­cy­cle lu­bri­cants pro­vided value and qual­ity, and fea­tured ad­di­tives sourced from the US.

Team rid­ers in­clude No­rafizah Siti Muhamad Rafiq, 21, who is also known as Fi­fie.

The Jo­horean lass has an im­pres­sive re­sume that in­cludes MSS Over­all Cham­pion 2014 and 2015, for the 250cc open cat­e­gory.

An­other rider is Iz­zat Rafiq, 18, who is from Cheras, Se­lan­gor and had raced in the Wira cat­e­gory for two sea­sons.
