Fahmi's Confidence Boosted By Knowledge Of Aragon Track

Tuesday, 29 March 2016 - Unlike his previous challenge in Buriram, Thailand, Malaysia’s World Supersport rider Muhammad Zulfahmi Khairuddin returns to familiar grounds at Aragon, Spain for Round 3 of the Motul FIM Superbike World Championship this weekend.
 
Having competed in Aragon since 2010 in the Moto3 World Championship and in the GP 125cc before that, Zulfahmi, who was based in Spain throughout that six seasons, would be boosted his deep knowledge of the track and Spanish climate.
 
“My biggest advantage will be that I know this track very well; having competed during my Moto3 days. Buriram may be nearer to Malaysia; but it was the first time that I competed on that track in Round 2 earlier this month. Hence, I am very positive and confident for the round 3 and looking forward for the race this weekend.
 
“My mastery of the 600cc Kawasaki machine is improving very well; though I must admit that there is still room for further improvement. The bike was much, much better in Round 2 and I hope that it will be even better for Round 3. My sincere thanks to all the team members that has been working very hard in preparation of the bike and also having given their fullest support from Day 1.     
 
“I would also like to thank Sepang International Circuit (SIC) for initiating the #supportfahmi63 campaign and getting so many fans on board, it certainly helps to boost my confidence. I pledged to do my best this weekend and make the fans, team and country proud,” added Fahmi.
