Hafiq Azmi

Hafiq is a 14 year old racer from Malaysia who has been selected to race in Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup 2011. Hafiq has a background in small bike racing since he was 7 years old and regularly races all over Malaysia and Indonesia.

Hafiq is the lap record holder for 150cc bikes at Sepang International Circuit.

UPDATE:  Hafiq had a tumultous time in New Zealand failing to finish any races, but setting fastest laps and leading races. Unfortunately his exuberance lead him to make some mistakes and he crashed off the bike too often and ended up breaking his ankle prior to the NZ Grand Prix meeting at Ruapuna. However, he showed that he has extreme speed and serious talent. If he can harness this then there is no reason why he cannot become the champion that he wants to become.

UPDATE: Hafiq finished in the middle of the pack at Rookies Cup 2011, with a best finish of 5th at Silverstone Circuit, after leading the race into the latter stages.
