It was aces for Md Helmi Azman of Boon Siew HONDA Racing Team at the Round 1 of FIM Asia Road Racing Championship.

The SS600 category rider who strides on the Honda CBR600 RR bagged the spot at the podium, twice that weekend placing him on the top of the scoreboard.

Helmi reigned as the Underbone 150cc champion in year 2018 and took his first chance at the Supersports 600cc in 2019. His success at the Chang International Circuit is a statement made to an enhanced performance even with the two-year hiatus.

Commenting on the race, “The race at Buriram was not an easy feat as I was competing with some of the best riders. As for Round 2, Sepang Circuit comes with a technical challenge which would require finer manoeuvring skills.”

“While I am comfortable with my machine, Round 2 would see riders pushing through at their best speed. I hope that I would be able to make the best out of the machine and like the previous race, it would be beyond 100% focus and effort.”

As for the team, Boon Siew HONDA Motorsport Manager, En Zulhelmi Ahmed said, “We are lucky to have a little advantage from our participation in MSBK last year. That has given us valuable input that is needed for our machine in its base settings.”

“I am anticipating a much exciting race in Round 2 as we have highly competitive riders and teams who have excelled at the circuit. Our team is motivated and driven to grab a spot at the podium.”
