On behalf of the Asian racing fraternity, the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship conveys our heartiest congratulations to Hafizh Syahrin Abdullah who recently became the first Malaysian rider to make it to the highest pinnacle of international racing – the MotoGP.

Hafizh raced in the SuperSports 600cc class in 2010 and 2011, having graduated with honours from the Malaysian Cub Prix Championship with two consecutive titles under his belt.

The Asian racing fraternity watched with pride as Hafizh’s career, under the tutelage of team PETRONAS Sprinta Raceline, continued to progress. This season, a decade since his racing debut, Hafizh’s lifelong dream has come true.

We wish the young Malaysian all the very best as he takes on the most challenging ride of his life.
