I Want a Malaysian Rider as Well – Razlan Razali

Datuk Razlan Razali plans to start a new Moto3 team and it must have a Malaysian rider. He said, “I don’t want to have only an European rider, I want Malaysian a rider as well” in the team.

He said this because there was a request from a potential investor in Europe for him to run a Moto3 team in the 2025 World Motorcycle Championship.

This is a great opportunity to include a national talent like Hakim Danish Ramli who is currently competing in the JuniorGP World Championship and the Red Bull Rookies Cup.

“Last week, there was a request from sponsors and potential investors (from Europe) asking me to come back, at least for a Moto3 team. They have a rider they want to bring in but want their own team.

“So I used that opportunity, maybe one European rider and another Malaysian rider. For me, if I want to make a Moto3 team, I don’t want the team to be all from Europe (riders), I want to include Malaysian riders as well,” he said.

Datuk Razlan also wants Zulfahmi Khairuddin who leads the ZK Racing team to participate in the project.

“I also have to get Zulfahmi’s opinion on whether I want KTM (machinery). If Moto3 is between Honda and KTM, KTM is better and things like this have to be planned well,” said Razlan.

He expects the final decision about it may be known before the Grand Prix (GP) of Kazakhstan, mid-June.

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."
