AKID PAVES THE WAY FOR POTENTIAL TITLE COMEBACK

Malaysian rider Mohd Akid Aziz could potentially be crafting an Underbone 150cc title comeback in the new 2019 season. The Asian UB150 champion in 2017, Akidlost the title last year to Honda’s Mohd Helmi Azman. As a new season unfolds, Akid and the UMA Racing Yamaha Maju Motor Asia Team seemed to have regrouped and are ready to take back the title that was lost in 2018. The Malaysian rider led the Underbone 150cc pre-season test with 2’34.016s.

However, despite the overwhelming Malaysian presence on the Underbone grid, the home contingent will have to work hard to dominate the podium. Indonesianrider Wahyu Aji Trilaksana, now racing with the ONEXOX TKKR SAG Racing Team, has gained new momentum as the second fastest rider. Wahyu clocked 2’34.158s.

Third fastest of the day, McKinley Kyle Paz from UMA Racing Yamaha Philippine Team continue to wow the Underbone paddock with 2’34.270s.

2018 Underbone team champion Hi Rev SCK Honda Racing Team has unearthed new talent from Japan. 13 year old Gun Mie wasted no time in getting the horsepower out of his Honda RS150 R. Mie finished the first day as the second fastest rider but dropped to sixth quickest after the second day.
