MSC: Azlan Shah storms to pole position in Round 1

Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman will start the first round of the Malaysia Superbike Championship 2018 (MSC) tomorrow from pole position.

Riding for the Chia PJ Kawasaki racing team, Azlan stormed through the qualifying session.

The 33-year-old set the fastest time of the day on board Chia PJ’s Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R.

Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman together with the Chia PJ Kawasaki racing team has stormed through the first qualifying session in the first round of the Malaysia Superbike Championship 2018 (MSC) earlier today. He has obtained the first pole position of the season after just one week of riding the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R.

After a blistering pace set by the 33-year-old rider during the practice session, Azlan Shah continued his form into the qualifying session by setting an impressive 2:09.493 which was the only rider to set below the 2:10 mark.

Second in the timesheets is also one of Malaysia’s highly-regarded racing figures, Mohd Ramdan Rosli. Riding for the newly-formed TOC HKMTOYO Racing Team, he will start tomorrow’s race from the middle of the front row on board his highly-competitive BMW S 1000 RR.

The 22-year-old has quite a work cut out for him to battle against the pole sitter as well as India’s fastest motorcycle racer, Rajini Krishnan K. This time around, Rajini and his very own Rajini’s Academy of Competitive Racing team (RACR) will be piloting a Yamaha YZF-R1 from the third position of the grid.

Will Chia PJ Kawasaki maintain their dominance this year? Can Azlan Shah fend off some of the league’s most competitive racers? There will be two races for each category tomorrow and they’ll start from 9.15am until 4.50pm. Entrance to the Main Grandstand is FREE!
