While all eyes were on title contenders Wahyu Aji Trilaksana and Ahmad Fazli Sham in the Underbone 130cc qualifying and subsequent SuperPole sessions, Fazli’s young team mate Mohd Haziq Mohd Fairues snuck past their defenses to log the fastest lap in the underbone class. Clocking in at 02’09.533s, the younger and lighter Haziq confirmed himself for pole position for the final two races in the Underbone 130cc category.

Both Wahyu and Fazli qualified for front row. The Indonesian ace will start the race in second place with his best solo lap of 02’09.888s. Split seconds off the pace, Fazli will take up the last spot on the front row with 02’10.040s.

“It’s great to receive confirmation that our top speed is on par with Wahyu’s bike. I feel no pressure starting the race from pole position. I just hope to be able to help my team mate Fazli to win the Underbone 130cc title,” said the UMA Racing Yamaha Maju Motor rider.

On second row, the pressure is increasing for Mohd Amirul Ariff Musa, Florianus Roy and Mohd Izzat Zaidi. Amirul, who is still in with a shot for the Underbone 130cc title, posted the fourth fastest time with 02’10.356s.
