11 Apr MCPRD02: MUHAIMIN BEST YAMAHA IN BATU KAWAN
PETRONAS Yamaha Maju Motor rider, Abdul Muhaimin Roslan gave an early warning that he is back in form by posting the third fastest lap time in the second leg of the 2015 PETRONAS AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championship, leading the rest of the Yamaha riders in the CP130 Timed Practice session here in Batu Kawan, Penang.
Timing 53.404s behind fastest rider, Mohd Zamri Baba and Mohd Hafiz Nor Azman, the CP130 rider waved through aggressions not only from the frontrunners but also from another senior rider behind him, Norizman Ismail who came in fourth fastest.
Clearly scheming a plot to return to the podium after a magnificent opening round in Temerloh, Muhaimin’s partner, Ahmad Fazli Sham strayed not too far off the grid, recording 53.429s as the fifth fastest. Fazli headed home just slightly ahead of Ahmad Afif Amran of PETRONAS Yamaha-CKJ in sixth and his compatriot, Mohd Fitri Ashraf Razali.
Meanwhile in the CP115 category, Yamaha riders dominated a clean sweep in top three with Tengku Amirul Haffirudin of Motul Yamaha YY Pang recording the fastest time ahead of the rest in 54.523s. Ahmad Syukran Aizat (PETRONAS Yamaha-CKJ) meanwhile came in second and another Maju Motor young upstart, Kasma Daniel Kasmayudin in third (55.397s).
In WIRA, Mohd Izzat Rafiq of Team PETRONAS Yamaha came in sixth fastest overall in 57.168s.
