Berita Litar - Proton R3 in Prime Position to Seal MSS Title in Sepang Tomorrow


Proton R3 Racing dynamic duo – Syafiq Ali and James Veerapan looked set to seal their Malaysian Super Series (MSS) title in Sepang tomorrow as they continue to top competition in the Malaysian Touring Car Challenge with another amazing performance in qualifying at Round 4 today.

The duo, who won all the previous races in all the rounds and amassed a maximum of 125 points, clocked 2 minutes 40.362 seconds in the Proton Satria Neo machine around the 5.543-km track to top the time sheets for the class; sending a clear message of their intentions to wrap the championship battle tomorrow with a round to spare.

The final round would be held from December 2 – 4 where the MSS cars would be reverting back to sprint races in a two-race format.

Soh Kee Koon, who is currently fourth in the overall standings with 40 points, was second fastest in the class with a time of 2 minutes 40.520 seconds as he faced a mountainous task to stop Proton R3 Racing from an early celebration.

The race returned its one-hour endurance format for this round; giving the opportunity for the Proton R3 partnership to change drivers while Soh, the former MSS Supersaloon champion, having the need to go alone throughout the 60-minute battle.

On that note, the partnership of Richard Gomes and Alvaro Maurato would be in a better position to challenge the championship leaders. Driving a Proton Satria Neo as well, the partnership from Tedco Racing was third in qualifying today with a time of 2 minutes 42.012 seconds.

Currently second in the MTCC overall standings with 49 points, Kok Pak Chiang and Sutan Mustaffa Salihin could only manage a fifth fastest time in qualifying with a time 2 minutes 43.388 seconds in their Proton Gen 2 machine.

Scheduled for 3.40pm tomorrow, the MTCC race would run together with competitors from GT Open, Sports Production and Touring Production classes.

In the premier GT class, Frank Yu of Craft Eurasia Racing was fastest in qualifying with a time of 2 minutes 9.414 seconds in his Aston Martin GT3 machine. He would start in the front row tomorrow alongside Vignesa Moorthy, who was second fastest with a lap time of 2 minutes 11.694 seconds in a Radical.

In the Sports Production Class, Zen Low of FX Primus Aylezo Motorsports could also have an early celebrations based on his performance in qualifying today.

Currently leading the class with 105 points and holding a 43-point advantage over his closest rival, Bruce Lee, the Sarawak-born driver was fastest in qualifying today; clocking 2 minutes 25.593 seconds. Bruce was second fastest with a time of 2 minutes 28.695 seconds; but was more than three seconds slower than Zen.

The Touring Production class looked set for an exciting battle tomorrow between two awesome partnerships - Hidehatu Kutoki and Perajun Krishnan in their Honda DC5; and Lai Wee Sing and Tan Lye Wee in a Honda FD2 machine.

Kutoki and Perajun had the faster car in qualifying; but was only 0.144 seconds ahead of Lai and Tan, who clocked 2 minutes 32.127 seconds.

Apart from the MSS car categories, tomorrow’s schedule would also feature a host of international class support races - the Asian Classic Car Championship, Touring Car Championship Asia, the Hong Kong Touring Car Championship, VW Scirocco Series and the Westfield Sportscar Series.

Berita Litar - Husni Affan Stuns Elder Brother to Take Pole Position at Ninja Cup


Husni Aizat Abdul Malik stunned elder brother and championship leader Hilmi Affan in qualifying at Sepang Circuit to take pole position for tomorrow opening race of the SIC Ninja 250 Cup at Malaysian Super Series (MSS) championship.

Currently third with 27 points after the opening round, Husni registered 2 minutes 43.688 seconds for his best lap around the 5.543-km track; clocking 1.526 seconds faster than Hilmi, who finished third fastest on the time sheet with a time of 2 minutes 45.214 seconds.

Muhammad Ammar Hafiq Rauzan, who currently sits sixth in the championship standings for the junior category with 20 points, clocked the second fastest qualifying time; with a time of 2 minutes 45.202 seconds. Like Muhammad Ammar, the siblings are also competing in the junior class, which since the opening round in July, had upstaged riders in the open class.

Winning both races in the opening round, Hilmi Affan carries a perfect record, which he aimed to defend in taking full control of the championship and enhanced his personal dream of becoming a professional racer.

Launched two months ago, the SIC Ninja 250 Cup is another initiative by the circuit to develop more Malaysian GP riders; offering the top winners an opportunity to compete on the world stage at the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix as wildcard riders.

Modeled to the MotoGP Red Bull Rookies Cup and SIC’s GP Wildcard Programme that produced Malaysian Moto3 rider Muhammad Zulfahmi Khairuddin, the programme features a comprehensive roadmap to create more world class riders. The top riders would qualify for selection to ride at the Malaysian GP as wildcard tickets, an opportunity to compete at the final round of the MotoGP World Championship next season and a full season in the following year.

Supported by Kawasaki, AGV Helmets and Dainese, the SIC Ninja 250 Cup is designed as a feeder championship; to fill the void between riders who competed on underbone 115cc machines in the Cub Prix to the 600cc machines - whether in the MSS or the Asia Road Racing Championship.

Riding identical Kawasaki Ninja 250cc machines, the riders are tested purely on the skills; making the championship highly exciting for the rider and entertaining for the spectators with its close competition. They will be competing on identical tyres provided by Pirelli, which is the Official Tyre this season’s Malaysian Super Series.

Race 1 would be held tomorrow; along with the opening races of the other bike categories in the MSS – the Superbike Championship, Superstock Championship and the Supersport Championship. Race 2 would be held on Sunday.

The weekend would also feature Round 4 of the MSS car categories – the GT class, Sport Production Class, Touring Production Class and the Malaysian Touring Car Challenge as well as a host of support races. They included the Asian Classic Car Championship, Touring Car Championship Asia, the Hong Kong Touring Car Championship, VW Scirocco Series and the Westfield Sportscar Series.

This year’s MSS is supported Iktikadraya – the distributor of alpinestars; Panta Racing Fuel; MAXIM oil lubricants, NITRON shock absorber, DID racing chain, Kawasaki, Pirelli, Michelin, DNA air filter for bikes, XAM sprocket, SBS brake and On The Road, which is the official magazine for the series.

Berita Litar - Hafizh Syahrin returns to Sepang with a Bang and Sparks GP Wildcard Talk

Malaysian Super Series Bikes – Round 3

Teenage sensation Hafizh Syahrin Abdullah, who is making waves this season at the prestigious CEV Spanish Championship, showed his class at the local arena as the 18-year old rider swept aside the Supersports grid in his return to the Malaysian Super Series at Sepang Circuit this year.

Making his first appearance at the MSS this season at Round 3 today, Hafizh, who rides for Team Petronas Sprinta Raceline Racing Team, was a class above his rivals as the Ampang-born rider ruled the free practice session on his Yamaha R6 machine, clocking 2 minutes 14.948 seconds and 1.552 seconds faster that his closest rival, Ahmad Fuad Baharuddin.

Fuad, a former MSS Supersports champion and currently fourth in the point standings with 40 points, clocked 2 minutes 16.500 seconds for his best lap around the 5.543-km MotoGP circuit on his Kawasaki ZXR machine. Fuad’s younger brother and Bike Art Racing team-mate was third fastest with a time of 2 minutes 17.735 seconds.

Australian youngster Michael Blair, who currently leads the 600cc Supersports Championship with 70 points, was fifth fastest; finishing behind Mohd Zamri Baba with a time of 2 minutes 19.210 seconds. Zamri, the Malaysian Moto2 wildcard rider for the past two Malaysian GPs, clocked 2 minutes 18.959 seconds.

Asked for comments on Hafizh’s participation for the weekend, team manager Barry Leong said that his rider was merely taking advantage of a long break in the Spanish series.

“He’s here just for keeping fit and for conditioning. His next race in the CEV Spanish Championship is in mid-November, which would be Round 7 and the final round. It just makes sense to return to Malaysia and maintain his physical conditioning here while waiting for the race,” said Barry.

He declined to comment on the possibility of Hafizh trying out again on the Moto2 wildcard ticket at the Malaysian Grand Prix; saying that the matter was not up to him to decide; though he agreed that Hafizh was ready for the challenge and better his performance last year.

Entered as wildcard riders in the Moto2 class, Hafizh finished a creditable 22nd place at the Malaysian GP with Zamri, who was making his second appearance as Moto2 wildcard rider, finishing two places ahead in 20th position.

After a long absence, Malaysia had entered wildcards riders back at the Malaysian GP since 2009 with Elly Idzlianizar Ilias and Muhammad Zulfahmi Khairuddin in the 125cc class. In the following year, Malaysia has Zamri in Moto2. Muhammad Farid Badrul Hisham was the wildcard rider in GP125cc last year as he joined Zamri and Hafizh in flying the Jalur Gemilang.

After six rounds, Hafizh now leads the Privateer Cup, which grouped all the non GP riders with a massive haul of 118 points. Of the six race, Hafizg won three of them – one in Navarra and twice in Albecete.

“Hafizh actually also won in Aragon; but was disqualified on technical grounds. It was indeed very disappointing … it could have been four wins,” Barry said, adding that the Petronas Sprinta Raceline rider is currently sixth in the overall standings with 55 points.

“I am very happy with his performance … despite competing in Europe for the first time, he showed plenty of maturity and confidence. He is very capable of great things in the future,” said Barry of the 2010 Malaysian Cub Prix expert champion.

In the Superbike Championship, Steve Martin clocked the fastest time in free practice with 2 minutes 17.028 seconds with three-time champion Yasuhiro Kuhara second on time sheet with 2 minutes 17.181 seconds. Luca Cassoni had the third fastest time for the session with 2 minutes 18.882 seconds.

In the Superstock category, defending champion and championship leader Ahmad Zamani Baharuddin, had the fastest time in free practice with a time of 2 minutes 16.973 seconds with Nizam Fairuz and Nasaruddin Mat Yusop second and third respectively with a time of 2 minutes 20.532 seconds; and 2 minutes 21.395 seconds.

Abang Rindu Abah....


Lama dah abang tak teriak macam ni.. Ni first time Abang buat posting kat blog pasal Abah, lepas Abah takdak.. Esok 18 September, genap dua bulan Abah pi.. Abang rindu Abah.. Sangat2.. :'(

Abah, Abang tak berapa sihat.. Start dari Abah takdak hari tu, Abang mula tak sihat.. Tapi Abang takmau habaq kat Mak sebab nanti mak risau.. Abah, tadi lepas solat zohor, abang belek2 laptop yang Abah beli dulu.. Ada gambaq lama..

Abang jumpak gambaq2 masa Raya tahun lepas, masa kita sambut Birthday Abah tahun lepas, banyak gambaq2 lama lain jugak.. Abang jumpak gambaq2 Dik Wan yang Abah selalu MMS kat Abang dulu..

Abah dah jauh dari kami tapi tiap masa abang rasa macam Abah dekat sangat dengan Abang.. Macam Abah selalu ada dengan Abang.. Abang boleh rasa terngiang-ngiang lagi suara Abah.. Suara gelak Abah.. Abang ingat lagi, last sekali kita sembang kat phone hari Isnin 16 Julai..

Time tu Abah call masa Abang on the way balik kerja.. Hehe.. Soalan Abah macam biasa la, "Abang ada duit lagi dak?". Time tu Abang memang nak kena bayaq duit rumah baru.. Abah selalu tau kalau Abang tengah takdak duit kan..

Pesan Abah yang sebelum letak phone, "Abang kalau takdak duit, habaq na.. Jangan nak taruh duit, sampai tak makan pulak.. Ok?". Abang ingat tu sampai bila2 Abah.. Tu la last Abang dengaq suara Abah..

Dua hari kemudian, 18 Julai, Rabu, Pukul 3 pagi, Abang dapat call dari makcik, cakap suruh Abang balik Perlis.. Makcik kata Abah masuk wad.. Abang dah rasa tak sedap hati dah time tu tapi Abang tetap tak mau pikiaq yang buruk2 sebab Abang tak bersedia apa2 lagi..

Berapa minit lepas tu, mak call.. Mak kata, "Abang, balik Perlis la jugak.. Sat lagi Mak masuk duit, Abang pi airport ok.. Balik cepat ok..". Time tu dalam otak Abang, memang takmau pikiaq bukan2 lagi.. Abang cuba pikiaq yang Abah masuk wad..

Tapi Abang tak boleh tipu diri sendiri.. Tetap ada rasa.. Abang call tanya mak, Abah ok dak.. Mak cakap, "Takpa, Abang balik dulu ok.. Bawak kereta elok2 pi airport ok..".

Bila Abang dah sampai airport, duit tak boleh keluaq sebab mesin ATM pukul 6 baru boleh guna.. Mak call lagi sekali, dia kata suruh balik Sg Buloh rumah Pakngah sebab family depa nak balik jugak..

Dari Sepang, pagi tu Abang drive balik Sg Buloh.. Sampai ja Sg Buloh, Abang masuk dalam rumah Pakngah.. Pakngah nampak biasa, tapi Makngah Abang nampak lain macam.. Wan, Fik, Shami, Ikram tak cakap apa2.. Tapi Abang nampak Wan dengan Fik pakai kopiah putih.. Takkan setakat nak balik kampung pakai kopiah putih.. Selalunya kalau pakai camtu .....

Hurm.. Tapi dalam otak Abang still takmau pikiaq lagi sebab Abang tak bersedia nak terima berita buruk lagi.. Abang masuk toilet sat, pastu dapat call dari Along.. Along kata, "Bang Chaq, hang kat mana? Hang tau dah kan?", Along cakap.. Suara dia macam tengah teriak..

Abang habaq kat dia, yang Abang kat rumah Pakngah nak balik Perlis dah.. Sepanjang jalan, Abang tak boleh nak lelap mata.. Macam2 dalam otak Abang.. Phone kat tangan tak lepas2.. Abang pikiaq, patut ka dak Abang mesej Abah, tanya Abah ok dak..

Stop dekat RnR mana ntah, area Perak, Abang call mak lagi tanya Abah ok dak.. Mak kata, takpa, Abang balik dulu.. Pastu Abang cakap dengan Ngah.. Suara dia macam biasa, tapi Abang dapat rasa depa sembunyi benda.. Ada benda yang depa takmau habaq kat Abang..

Pastu terlelap sat.. Dalam tidoq tu pun, tak nyenyak sangat.. Sebab Abang asyik terbayang kalau sampai rumah satgi, tengok2... Hm.. Tapi Abang cuba lena jugak.. Bukak mata ja, dah sampai Jitra.. Dah tak jauh dah Abah..

Kat phone Abang dah taip, "Abah tunggu sat na.. Abang nak sampai dah.. Kat Jitra dah.." tapi tak terhantaq kat Abah.. Tak tau pasai apa.. Lepas Jitra, Tunjang, Padang Sera, dan sampai Kodiang.. Pakngah dok tak dok nak berenti makan.. Dia kata, dia lapaq..

Abang tak makan.. Tak dak selera langsung.. Time tu semua senyap.. Pastu ada pakcik2 kat meja belakang dua tiga orang dok sembang.. Dok tak dok, ada sorang tu kata kat kawan dia, nak pi Jelempok, nak pi mengunjung..

Jantung Abang macam nak luruh time tu Abah.. Abang cuba.. Cuba untuk terima.. Pakngah tengah makan dok tak dok, teriak.. Wan pi bayaq pastu Abang pi duduk dalam kereta..

Wan terus drive.. Masuk jalan baru nak ke belakang rumah kita tu Abah.. Abang tengok orang dah ramai.. Ramai sangat Abah, kat tempat Abah letak van.. Ada yang Abang kenai, ada yang Abang tak kenai..

Mak dengan Ngah dah ada kat pintu pagar tempat Abah selalu buat perencah tu.. Mak senyum.. Ngah pun.. Tapi Abang tau apa depa rasa.. Abang turun dari kereta, terus salam tangan mak.. Peluk ngah.. Abang tanya Mak, "Abah mana mak?".. Mak cakap, "Abang takmau qeyau na.. Abah takdak dah..".

Kaki Abang lembik time tu Abah.. Abang tak bersedia lagi.. Langsung.. Sebab Abah selalu ada.. Abah akan jaga kami semua.. Abah akan jaga Abang.. Slow2, Mak bawak abang masuk dalam rumah..

Kat dalam rumah, orang kampung ramai mai mengunjung Abah.. Mak pasang tirai.. Sebalik tirai tu, Abang nampak jenazah Abah.. Kaku.. Abang bukak kain nipis yang tutup muka Abah, Abang nampak wajah jenazah Abah.. Tenang.. Pakai kopiah putih..

Abang ambil tangan Abah, Abang salam kucup macam Abang selalu buat bila sampai rumah.. Tangan yang jaga Abang dari kecik sampai la walaupun Abang dah bekerja.. Masa tu baru Abang tau, Abang dengan adik2 dah jadi anak yatim.. Mak dengan Umi dah jadi janda..

Abang tengok Tok dengan Makcik.. Depa sedih.. Abang lagi sedih..

Abang tukaq baju, pakai baju Melayu Abah.. Abang duduk sebelah Abah, baca Yassin.. Tunggu masa untuk madikan Abah.. Ramai kawan2 Abah mai tengok Abah.. Sambil baca tu, sekali2 Abang tengok muka Abah.. Cium dahi Abah..

Waktu nak mandikan Abah, Abang dengan Syamil tolong.. Tu pertama kali Abang mandikan Abah.. Gosok2 badan Abah.. Dah selesai mandikan Abah, semua menunggu untuk kafankan Abah.. Pakaikan persalinan terakhir untuk Abah..

Sebelum wajah Abah ditutup untuk selama-lamanya, Abang, adik2, mak, umi, tok, makcik, pakngah semua kucup dahi Abah.. Masa tu, Abang kena cuba terima kenyataan yangAbang takkan jumpa Abah lagi dah.. :'(

Dik Wan baru balik dari rombongan sekolah masa tu.. Dia lagu dia la, bukan tau apa pun umuq tu..

Banyak benda yang Abang terkilan sebenaqnya sebab tak sempat nak buat untuk Abah.. Abang tak dan nak mintak halal makan minum sebelum Abah pi.. Abang tak sempat nak jaga Abah.. Nak bagi duit kat Abah.. Paling terkilan, Abang pernah plan bila ada duit, nak belikan Abah jam tangan Rado, yang Abah jual dulu.. Abah jual jam tangan tu sebab Abang nak masuk universiti time tu.. Abang ingat lagi..

Petang tu, Alhamdulillah semua selesai.. Jenazah Abah pun dah selamat dikebumikan.. Banyak hari jugak Abang cuti sebab nak tolong mak selesaikan apa yang patut.. Malam tu lepas tahlil, Abang pi dapoq.. Mak tunjuk sebungkus epal hijau..

Mak cakap, ni Abah beli semalam sebab nak buat jus dengan pucuk mengkudu.. Abah suruh Syamil p cari tapi dia takdan.. Abang nampak, anak Abah yang honaq tu pun qeyau jugak cuma dia jenih takmau tunjuk..

Dia rasa terkilan la tu takdan buat.. Abang pun ada satu lagi benda yang rasa terkilan sebab Isnin tu Abah ingat dak, yang Abang pi pelancaran Honda Civic Generesi ke-9 tu.. Abah suruh hantaq gambar tapi Abang kata nanti Abang hantaq tapi Abang terlupa..

Hm.. Raya tahun ni rasa macam tak raya pun Abah.. First time Abang pi sembahyang raya sendiri bawak Dik Wan.. Dalam masjid, Abang qeyau lagi sebab macam ternampak ja tempat kita selalu duduk tiap kali sembahyang raya.. Tapi tahun ni.. Hurm..

Beberapa minggu lagi, Abang nak balik raya Haji.. Tak tau la macam mana Abah.. Hurm.. Ok la Abah.. Nanti kalau dan Abang taip lagi ok.. Abang, mak, umi, tok, makcik, pakngah, adik2, semua rindu Abah.. Moga Abah diletakkan dikalangan orang2 beriman.. Amin..

Al-fatihah untuk arwah Abah,

Hehe. Over kan tajuk. Takpe sebab memang mantop pun. Rumah Terbuka Aidilfitri NAZA ni memang sangat hebat dengan sajian berpuluh2 jenis makanan terus dihidangkan dari dapur Le Meridien KL. Semalam memang banyak pilihan makanan Melayu, tapi ada juga beberapa makanan kaum lain so sangat 1Malaysia.

Aku macam biasa la, bila tiba je masa rumah terbuka, kalau boleh semua makanan nak rasa. Cuma perut cepat kenyang so aku sempat rasa beberapa makanan je antaranya Mee Kari, Nasi Lemak, Keropok Lekor, dan Apam Balik. Nasi lemak dia memang paling heaven. Orang lain makan satu scoop, aku mintak dua. Haha. Selain dari tu, ada juga buah-buahan tempat diletakkan sebagai pemanis mulut.

Pindah Rumah

Salam semua. Baru-baru ni aku dah pindah rumah sebab rumah lama tu dah ada orang baru nak masuk. So sedikit sedih la sebab dah selesa kat rumah tu. Rumah sewa lama tu rumah flat tapi sebab kawasan tu senang dapat kedai, and access dengan banyak kemudahan, so aku dan housemates (now ex-housemates) memang sangat selesa serta seronoklah di situ.

Ex housemates

Disebabkan terpaksa berpindah, so aku cuba mencari rumah sewa dan akhirnya ada sebuah rumah ni sesuai. Lokasinya adalah di Dataran Otomobil, Seksyen 15 Shah Alam. Yeap, 5 minit berjalan kaki dari office aku. Alhamdulillah lah sebab dekat.

Harga dia tak murah sangat macam rumah lama la. Tapi bila fikir-fikir balik, ok la kot sebab tu master bedroom and ada bilik mandi sekali dalam bilik. So lepas dah deal dengan owner rumah, aku pun setuju untuk stay situ. Sekarang masa untuk fikir macam mana nak angkut barang aku yang 4 tan tu!

Selepas bertungkus lumus berkemas segala bagai, aku pun setel dan bersedia untuk pindah rumah. Call lori, RM180 dia caj. Lantaklah. Tu pun, Indiana Jones yang bawak lori tu nak mintak extra RM20 tapi disebabkan perangai aku yang macam gampang, memang aku tak kasi la!

"Kalau you taknak angkat, I boleh call lori lain. Kalau you nak angkat, terima je RM180 ni," kata aku kepada Indiana and dia pun cakap ok. Alhamdulillah.

Sampai je di rumah baru, satu lagi cabaran adalah nak kemas bilik. Bilik ni luas tapi barang aku lagi banyak. Melampau banyak gila-gila punya banyak. Sebab lagi satu adalah aku takde kotak untuk simpan barang. So sebab tu la kot nampak banyak gile.

Ruang tamu yang anggun

Rumah baru ni ok, ruang tamu nampak kemas. Masalah aku sekarang adalah seekor kucing. Sebab aku asthma, so kalau kucing ni menggedik-gedik dalam bilik aku, mungkin bulan pertama aku dah arwah sebab sesak nafas. So aku decide untuk sentiasa tutup pintu.


So petang tu, mula la aku ni slow-slow kemas bilik tu, susun barang, kumpul sampah. And now, alhamdulillah sekali lagi sebab barang-barang semua dah disusun rapi dan aku dah dapat bilik yang selesa dan berbau wangi serta kemas. :)

Sofa buatan sendiri yang baru siap semalam.

Semua dah setel dan boleh landing dengan aman. :)
