Hafizh Syahrin is excited to try his hand at four-wheels racing in the Sepang 1000km Endurance (S1K) this weekend.

Using his time out away from his usual vocation, Hafizh had been training with Hi-Re SIC Dream Chaser team a week before the season ending race at Valencia. The training aim to bring him up to speed in the world of four-wheeled racing at the Sepang International Circuit.

Hafizh said that the S1K will be his preparation for the World Touring Car Races (WCTR) which will be held back-to-back with the FIM World Endurance Championship (FEWC) motorcycle endurance from 13th to 15th December.

He will also race in the FEWC in a Petronas and SIC backed team which consists of Franco Morbidelli besides another rider.

“I have to prepare myself in mental and physical aspects. I have to familiarise myself with different sensations and feel in a car on the track.”

He will be driving a Toyota Vios with the number 910 along with 17-year-old up and coming driver Bradley Benedict Anthony, and Alister Yoong who is the  son of former Malaysian Formula 1 driver  Alex Yoong.

72 cars will fill the SIC grid this weekend.
