Underbone 150cc Champion Mohd Helmi Azman is preparing to make the leap to the SuperSports 600cc in 2019. A day after lifting the Underbone 150cc trophy at the Chang International Circuit, Helmi is back out on the track testing for team MUSASHi Boon Siew Honda.
Helmi has had some experience racing on the 600cc bikes back home, but he will be preparing to enter a different level of competition as he goes head on against the best of Asia in the coming season.
The young rider charted systematic improvements over the first day of practice, lapping consistently within the 1’41 mark. His fastest time of the day was 1’41.145s from Practice 3.
