Young Malaysian rider Mohd Akid Aziz completed a 10-lap Underbone 150cc thriller with a hard-fought victory scored at a time of 18:46.517s. Racing at Round 4 of the Idemitsu Asia Road Racing Championship at the Sentul Circuit, Akid’s latest Race 1 win was his second win of the season.
True to character, the Underbone race saw wheel-to-wheel racing with the top 10 riders racing in a swarm. Defending champion Wahyu Aji Trilaksana was the early leader on Lap 1, only to hand the reins over to Akid on Lap 13. Mohd Helmi Azman of team Onexox TKKR Racing got into the front of the group on Lap 5, only to lose it to Wahyu Aji again. On Lap 8, wildcard Richard Taroreh was first across the line but as the racing got more intense in the last two laps, Akid was able to push himself into the front.
Wahyu Aji Trilaksana finished second with a time of 18:46.654s followed by Mohd Helmi Azman in third with 18:46.681s.
