Md Ibrahim Md Norrodin of SIC Racing made a blistering pace towards the end to grab the top spot at the podium in Race 1 of the Supersports 600cc.

The Malaysian rider aboard the YAMAHA YZF-R6 who was in a nip and tuck battle with Khairul Idham Pawi managed to break into the latter’s pace in the final lap when he clocked in at 21:52:255s.

Throughout the race, Khairul displayed dexterity when he leapt to the front and took lead for seven consecutive laps. It was at lap 8 that Ibrahim sped up to take charge but fell short when Khairul emerged ahead of him once again.

Nevertheless, Ibrahim did not intend to end the race in the second spot. He mustered his strength and made a bold move at the last lap, taking Khairul down.

Commenting on the race, “It was a hard and good one this time around. While I faced some mechanical issues with my machine earlier this morning during qualifying, I cannot be happier to have defeated Khairul.”

“My strategy was to close the gap with the HONDA riders and towards the end of the race, I am glad to be able to do so.”

Khairul of Boon Siew HONDA Racing Team took the second spot at 21:52:789s while his teammate, Azroy Hakeem Anuar took the third spot at 21:52:987s.
