A perfect day at for Honda marque as we saw the first 1,2,3 podium in the CP150 category, Idemitsu Honda Yuzy Racing rider Azroy Hakeem Anuar won for the first time for Honda with his teammate Zakwan Zaidi took third, and Hi-Rev SCK Honda Racing rider Md Helmi Azman took second to complete a clean sweep in the premier category at Round 1 of the 2019 Petronas Malaysian Cub Prix Championship in Jasin, Malacca.
Azroy started the 20-lap race from third on the grid but quickly got past polesitter Md Iqbal Amri Abd Malek on the second lap. However, Azroy was unable to shake fellow Honda competitor Mohd Helmi Azman off his tail. While the two younger riders duked it out at the front of the group, Mohd Zaqhwan Zaidi who has returned to Cub Prix after a year’s hiatus, kept defending champion Ahmad Afif Amran bottled up in fourth place.
The CP115 final was easily won by Md Fareez Afeez Abd Rahman from team Motul Yamaha YY Pang while Md Zaki A. Zamri put in an inch-perfect performance in the Wira Final.
