Malaysia Needs Motoring Schools – Jorge Lorenzo

Three-time MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo said Malaysia needs motoring schools for two wheels to develop talent to compete competitively on the global stage one day.

Lorenzo said the schools needs to be guided by some former champions and also to organise a series of championships to discover and further develop talented riders.

“I think Malaysia and Indonesia need this school with some champions who can share their experiences and organise some championships for children.

“Only with this, they can improve because the organisation of the championship is not very strong and there is no champion who can give advice to the children,” said Lorenzo who is also the ambassador of the electric motorcycle brand Vmoto Brand, on last Wednesday.

Malaysia at the time is seen to be on the right track to produce good riders with grassroots programs such as the Malaysian MiniGP Series Championship run by former rider in the World Motorcycle Championship, Zulfahmi Khairuddin.

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."
