The country’s youngest rider, Hakim Danish, will not be participating in this weekend’s race after being involved in an accident in Race 1 of the Final Round of the Asia Talent Cup (ATC) at the Mandalika Circuit, on Friday.
Hakim suffered a ‘highside’ on Turn 16 while competing for 4th place and suffered a fracture in his right wrist.
ZKRacing confirmed the matter through official statements. This means that Hakim will miss Race 2, Race 3 scheduled for Saturday (today) and Race 4 on Sunday in an effort to recover from injury.
Meanwhile, Hakim took the liberty to explain in a video recording the situation that befell him.
“My Race 1 started in the eighth box but I was ‘high side’ in Turn 16 and my arm was broken. So I can’t race on Saturday and Sunday.
“During Race 1 I tried to chase the front group and at the beginning of the lap I was confident to give competition but in the last three laps I made a mistake and in the last lap, I was a little slow.
“At that time I tried to re-enter and there was a little sand so my rear tire kept throwing.
“Thank God I’m safe, just a little broken arm, nothing for me,” says the 14-year-old rider.
Meanwhile, Danial Syahmi managed to finish Race 1 in second place while another national representative, Sharul Ezwan took 7th place.
