SIC Racing Team and rider Zulfahmi Khairuddin concluded their pre-season testing today having made good progress on board the Kalex Moto2 machine.
As a newcomer to the intermediate class, Fahmi continued to use his time on track to work on the set-up of his 600cc bike. Working through setting’s and adding more miles to the clock, saw the Malaysian riders confidence grow within the Moto2 field, as he continued to improve in every dry session.

“With Fahmi the aim for this test was to do more kilometres and for him to continue to adapt to the bike. Unfortunately we didn’t get the conditions that we had hoped for but still every session he went out in the dry, he improved. The team around him is working very well. His Crew Chief Fausto is very good at adjusting the bike to suit Fahmi’s needs. Fahmi is happy with the progress and we are seeing a good step from the Sepang test to here. In Qatar we will have to take another step, but I’m confident we can do this.”

“The bad weather has really limited our track time during this test, which is a real shame, but thankfully we have still been able to work through some important things.
Although it’s been less than we wanted, I’m happy to have been able to get back on the bike and get more experience before the first round. My confidence is increasing every session and I feel ready for Qatar.
For sure if we’d had more dry track time we could have tested a lot more and improved our lap time further but overall I’m pleased with the progress we have made throughout our testing.”
