Hakim Danish Ramli Takes Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Podium at Jerez

Malaysia’s young rider, Hakim Danish Ramli took the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup podium that took place at the Jerez Circuit, Spain on the podium over the weekend.

The 17-year-old showed a fierce fighting spirit in Race 2 by leading the race but Spain’s Alvaro Carpe pipped Hakim Danish at the last yard to win the race by just 0.006 seconds ahead.

“Today I am happy to be back on the podium,” Hakim said. He finished third on the podium on his debut last season in Round 1 of Race 2 at the Algarve Circuit in Portugal.

“In the last race, I almost won but that’s okay, because I will keep trying to do better after this. For me, the last race was very fast and it was a tough competition.

“Regardless, I tried to follow the pace, stay focused and (as a result) I managed to be in the front group. Of course I’m happy and will look forward to the next race. Malaysia Boleh!”

With that success, Hakim Danish has now jumped to fifth position in the overall rider standings with 27 points after finishing Race 1 yesterday in ninth place.

Round 2 of the 2024 season is now scheduled to take place at Le Mans Circuit, France on May 11 and 12 before Mugello Circuit, Italy becomes the venue for the third round from June 1 to 2.

Hakim Danish Ramli was cited as a candidate rider by Datuk Razlan Razali if he could start a new Moto3 team in the 2025 season.

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."
