Ahmad Daniel Haiqal, Eric Chia and Tony Ng were on point throughout the race weekend in Round 1 of the MSF Supermoto Series at the Tangkak Circuit in Johor with dominant back to back race victories in the All Stars Pro, All Stars Legend and Rookie classes respectively.

Pro rider Ahmad Daniel was simply unbeatable, claiming pole positions for Race 1 and Race 2, and going on to win both 14-lap All Stars Pro races with an unassailable lead and also winning the 7-lap Super Rocco sprint race.

“The team and I approached both races with a different strategy. I went into Race 1 with used tyres yet we still had the pace to set the quickest lap time and clinched the race win. In Race 2, more emphasis was placed on tweaking the suspension. Overall it was a great race weekend and after this it’s back to practice and getting more seat time on the bike. Hopefully we can keep this momentum going throughout the year,” said Ahmad Daniel.

In the All Stars Legends class, Singaporean Eric Chia’s 2024 campaign in pursuit of a third successive overall championship title got off to a sterling start when he was also practically unchallenged throughout the weekend.  The Hi-Rev Racing rider instead found himself battling for overall positions at the head of the field which grouped the All Stars Pro, All Stars Legends and Evo class riders into the same race start.

Most of the wheel to wheel action was seen in the Rookie class with Tony Ng holding off a formidable field to win both races. He finished just 1.1 seconds ahead of Kenneth Chan in Race 1, with Mohammad Aniq in 3rd place (Mohammad Aniq won but was penalised for jumpstarting). In Race 2 Ng, who is competing in only his first year of supermoto racing, held back Brian Kee for the win with 16-year-old Mohammad Aniq again finishing 3rd. Mohammad Aniq had won the 6-lap Super Rocco sprint race which placed him on pole position for Race 2 but fumbled the start and dropped to the back of the field.

In the Evo class, Muhammad Izzudin won Race 1 ahead of Marcus Lee with Mohamad Dani Reza finishing 3rd. Mohamad Dani Reza went on to claim victory in Race 2 with James Ki and Marcus Lee finishing second and third respectively.

Round 2 of the 2024 MSF Supermoto Series returns to the Tangkak Circuit in Johor on 28 July, with Round 3 scheduled to be held from 19-20 October at the Sepang Go-Kart Track while the fourth and final round on 17 November will be held in either Selangor or Perak at a yet to be confirmed circuit.
