The five rounds of MSC will help Azlan Shah hone his skills of riding from May until October and competing on a litre race machine whilst performing his racing duties in the Supersport 600 category of ARRC in between. With major support from the likes of K-Tech Suspension, Kratos Motorsports, Bel-Ray Malaysia, and many more, Azlan Shah will be a formidable rider in the national race series.
The racing team hailing from Petaling Jaya, Selangor used to race in all four categories of MSC from the Super 250 all the way to Superbike classes. With riders like Rajini Krishnan (India), Karhu Jouni (Finland), Muhammad Jazil Juraimi (Singapore), and more, they’ve dominated the scene with Kawasaki machinery and they’re looking to continue that trend with their new star rider.
