The scene of highs and lows encapsulates the very heart of motorcycle racing, where the exhilaration of speed is tempered by the harsh reality of unpredictability. However, it’s a journey of peaks and valleys not willingly sought after by any rider. The unpredictable nature of the sport tests the limits of skill and fortitude.

The statistics of Supersports 600cc in Round 1 IDEMITSU FIM Asia Road Racing Championship painted a somber picture: Race 1 – DNF (Did Not Finish), Race 2 – DNF (Did Not Finish). However, delving deeper into Malaysian rider of IDEMITSU Boon Siew Honda Racing Team, Azroy Hakeem Anuar’s performance reveals a narrative of promise and potential that refuses to be overshadowed by setbacks.

From the onset of the event, Azroy commanded attention with his prowess on the track. Consistently impressive performances in Practice sessions underscored his readiness to compete among the best. Practice 1 saw him secured an impressive P4, followed by a stellar ascent to P2 in Practice 2. The momentum continued into Practice 3, where Azroy asserted his dominance by clinching the top spot. Qualifying further validated his credentials, securing a commendable P2 on the grid, setting the stage for what promised to be a thrilling race day.

Indeed, Azroy did not disappoint. Positioned prominently within the front group throughout both races, he fervently battled for podium contention, refusing to yield to the challenges posed by his rivals. However, fate delivered a harsh blow as Azroy’s ambitions were dashed by unfortunate incidents during crucial overtaking maneuvers.

Azroy lamented, “I felt disappointed to lose the points, I just threw away 50 points so easily. I still can’t accept the result. But it’s already in the past. For now, I will strive to be better than before.”

Azroy shared, “I’ve made significant strides since last year, yet it’s apparent that I became overly confident in my ability to secure victory. Regrettably, I committed an error that I now realize was avoidable. Rest assured, I’ll glean valuable lessons from this experience and strive to perform even better in the future.”

Azroy emphasized, “Naturally, for that type of overtaking maneuver, patience is essential. I must exercise greater caution in such situations moving forward.” Azroy sets his sights on the upcoming Round 2 of the IDEMITSU FIM Asia Road Racing Championship at the Zhuhai International Circuit, China.
