Top Malaysian rider Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman will be teaming up with the ONEXOX TKKR Racing Team as they forge ahead with preparations for the incoming ASB1000 class in the 2019 FIM Asia Road Racing Championship. The 34-year-old rider will lead the team’s assault astride the BMW S1000 RR.
“Azlan is one of the best riders we’ve got in Malaysia right now. It was amazing to me that he had not been snapped up by any of the factory teams yet, so we jumped on the chance to have such a high-calibre rider in our team,” said Bobie Farid, Team Principal of the ONEXOX TKKR Racing Team.
“No other rider can equal the depth of experience that Azlan will be bringing with him” said Bobie, referring to Azlan’s long and successful racing career that had taken him from the Malaysian Cub Prix Championship to the top of the Asia Road Racing Championship and subsequently to the Moto2 class of the MotoGP.
For his part, Azlan will be joining a burgeoning team that had been on a rapid expansion path. By 2019, the ONEXOX TKKR Racing Team will field bikes in every class of the Malaysian Cub Prix Championship and the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship. The team is also considering making their debut in the Spanish National Championship (CEV).
