Datuk 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.

Datuk Razlan Razali bercadang memulakan yang sebuah pasukan Moto3 baharu dan ia mestilah ada seorang pelumba Malaysia. Beliau berkata, “Saya tak nak ada pelumba Eropah sahaja, saya nak pelumba Malaysia juga” di dalam pasukan itu.

Beliau berkata demikian kerana terdepat permintaan daripada pelabur berpotensi di Eropah untuk beliau mengendalikan sebuah pasukan Moto3 di dalam Kejuaraan Motosikal Dunia 2025.

Ini merupakan peluang terbaik memasukkan seorang bakat negara seperti Hakim Danish Ramli yang sedang bersaing di Kejuaraan Dunia JuniorGP dan Red Bull Rookies Cup masa ini.

“Pada minggu lalu, ada permintaan daripada penaja serta pelabur berpotensi (dari Eropah) yang meminta saya datang semula, paling tidak untuk buat pasukan Moto3. Mereka mempunyai seorang pelumba yang hendak dibawa masuk tetapi nak pasukan sendiri.

“Jadi saya gunakan peluang itu, mungkin seorang pelumba Eropah dan seorang lagi pelumba Malaysia. Bagi saya, kalau nak buat pasukan Moto3, saya tak nak pasukan itu semuanya dari Eropah (pelumba), saya nak masukkan juga pelumba Malaysia,” katanya.

Datuk Razlan turut inginkan Zulfahmi Khairuddin yang mengemudi pasukan ZK Racing untuk turut serta dalam projek berkenaan.

“Saya juga kena dapatkan pendapat Zulfahmi sama ada nak (jentera) KTM. Kalau Moto3 antara Honda dan KTM, KTM lagi bagus dan perkara seperti ini kena rancang sebaiknya,” kata Razlan.

Beliau menjangkakan keputusan muktamad mengenainya mungkin diketahui sebelum Grand Prix (GP) Kazakhstan, pertengahan Jun ini.

Dato’ Razlan Razali, the CEO of Sepang International Circuit said,  “We are extremely thankful to Honda Racing Corporation for supplying us with the Honda machines for next season. Honda has proven last year and especially this year to be extremely competitive and we sincerely appreciate them delivering the bikes for our two riders in 2016.”

“Besides providing the bike for the team there is a lot more that we can do with the local Honda distributor here in Malaysia; it’s the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle for us with our involvement in the Asia Talent Cup, where all the riders are using Honda machines. With this partnership we can transfer knowledge and expertise from our Moto3 team to the Asia Talent Cup,” he added.

Johan Stigefelt,  the team manager for the Drive M7 SIC Racing Team on the other hand, said that they have gained a lot of experience from our first year in Moto3 as a team and I think the switch to Honda will be a step in the right direction for them.

“We have a good connection with HRC in terms of our relationship with Sepang International Circuit and the Asia Talent Cup. With regards to performance we know the Honda is very strong and can fit well into our structure and with our riders. I’m very pleased to have this opportunity and that Honda Racing Corporation have agreed on this partnership with us,” he said.
