In only his third start in Grand Prix motorcycle racing, Khairul Idham Pawi claimed his first victory in Moto3 Sunday at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit in Argentina. The 17-year-old Honda Team Asia rider is the first-ever Malaysian rider to claim a victory in Grand Prix motorcycle racing. Pawi’s first race was as a wildcard entry at Motorland Aragon last season, where he finished 25th.
The second round of the 2016 Moto2 Championship headed south to the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit in Argentina. Though dark skies loomed over the 2.9-mile circuit, Race Direction declared a dry race, and all 29 riders chose slick tires – medium fronts and hard rears.
Besides not having any experience with the spec Michelin tires or Magneti Marelli ECUs at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit, the 21-rider grid was greeted with inclement weather conditions in Argentina. Due to the issues associated with the weather, only 13 riders finished the race.
