I was at the back position then and at that time I had no other choice but to make my time because otherwise, the tire will become cold and it would be more difficult to score a good lap time. I am not sure what the race holds considering the unpredictability of the weather but if luck is on my side, I hope to be on the podium. I will continue to give my best.” At the second fastest spot was Md Shafiq Rasol of ONEXOX TKKR Racing Team, logging in his best at 1’46:892s. Murobbil took the third fastest spot at 1’47:439s.
