Hafizh Syahrin Excited to Drive in Sepang 1000km Endurance (S1K)

  • Hafizh Syahrin will take part in the Sepang 1000 km Endurance (S1K) this weekend.

  • The race is his preparation for the World Touring Car Races in December.

  • He will also ride in the FIM Endurance World Championship.

Hafizh Syahrin is excited to try his hand at four-wheels racing in the Sepang 1000km Endurance (S1K) this weekend.

Using his time out away from his usual vocation, Hafizh had been training with Hi-Re SIC Dream Chaser team a week before the season ending race at Valencia. The training aim to bring him up to speed in the world of four-wheeled racing at the Sepang International Circuit.

Hafizh said that the S1K will be his preparation for the World Touring Car Races (WCTR) which will be held back-to-back with the FIM World Endurance Championship (FEWC) motorcycle endurance from 13th to 15th December.

He will also race in the FEWC in a Petronas and SIC backed team which consists of Franco Morbidelli besides another rider.

“I have to prepare myself in mental and physical aspects. I have to familiarise myself with different sensations and feel in a car on the track.”

He will be driving a Toyota Vios with the number 910 along with 17-year-old up and coming driver Bradley Benedict Anthony, and Alister Yoong who is the  son of former Malaysian Formula 1 driver  Alex Yoong.

72 cars will fill the SIC grid this weekend.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
