Ahmad Idham granted wildcard entry for Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup Round 3 in Sepang this weekend.
The Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup series returns for Round 3 this weekend on a high note for team Malaysia. Making his wildcard debut in the series this weekend is non other than 16-year-old Ahmad Idham Khairuddin.
If the name sounds all too familiar, Idham is in fact the younger brother of national Moto3 rider Zulfahmi Khairuddin. Like his older brother, Idham is fairly well versed with the world of racing. Last year alone saw Idham compete in the SIC Ninja 250 Cup and the KTM 390 Duke Battle Malaysia race series as well.
Idham is clearly excited with the opportunity and expressed: “I am truly honoured to be competing in the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup in Sepang, at a world-class event like the WSBK. I aim to do well and hope to get more opportunities to compete internationally.”
This weekend, Idham joins fellow national riders Shafiq Rasol, Helmi Azman, Adam Norrodin, Fakhrusy Rostam, and Azroy Anuar as the region’s only premier Moto3 series returns from its two-month long break.
Round 3 of the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup series will take place this weekend in the Sepang International Circuit where it will support the Malaysian leg of the World Superbikes Championship (WSBK).
