Wow – how exciting??

Today was the announcement of the AirAsia Malaysia Wildcard Rider for the Malaysia MotoGP, 125cc Category.

The launch, held at Sepang International Circuit (SIC) was to announce the final rider who is the Malaysian Wildcard entry for the first time in years. The final two riders were Elly Idzlianizar Illias and Mohd Zulfahmi Khairuddin.

But surprise! Malaysia is entering both riders into the GrandPrix, to be held at SIC on 23, 24, 25 October.

The program started back in May with a pool of 19 riders who compete in the current Petronas Sprinta Malaysian Cub Prix Championship and the Malaysian Super Series Bikerz Mag 150cc Cup.
Down from 19, after a rigid training program, they went down to two riders – of which only one was supposed to be selected.

What a proud day for Malaysia that both are going to be riding!

AirAsia are incredibly honored to support this momentous occasion in way of being the title sponsor. Of course we don’t like to do things by half, so as you can imagine, the bike, the suits, team uniforms, back drops – all are very proudly dressed in the red and white of AirAsia…it does look pretty slick!

Now then…contest time!
