Pelumba Malaysia di kedudukan ke-5 adalah Fakhrusy Rostam, ke-7 Adam Norrodin, ke-8 Azroy Anuar, ke-11 Helmi Azman, ke-12 Shafiq Rasol, ke-14 Idham Khairuddin dan ke-20 Luth Erwan.

Exclusive interview with Giorgio Barbier, Pirelli Moto Racing Director, WSBK Sepang Round

WSBK-Race1-Sepang-001 We had the chance to interview Pirelli Moto Racing Director on 2nd August at WSBK Sepang Round. A little to late but, this is our editor, Eddy (along with Azuan from Roda-Roda), interviewing Giorgio Barbier. Interesting view of Pirelli towards the races in Malaysia condition and climate. How was the race in Malaysia? Giorgio Barbier: Last year was the first year for us (race in Sepang) with the high temperature that we meet. We race with the softest rear, the softest in our range. It was good but we see that it suffer a lot from the first to the last lap of the race where the gap was too high from our view to consider. This year instead, we decide to bring just the new Pirelli SC Zero that could met this kind of circuit which has been improved from the last year tyre. We also brought other two solution, one is now is testing for us to be the new Pirelli SC Zero as we already tested in Europe, US and other track. And the 3rd which is the softest that just created for this track. The condition we met here is different from any other in the world. The temperature is special because of the humidity is something that we didn't met anywhere else. Europe, Spain and Italy or Imola with 60 degrees on the asphalt but today we see 45 degrees. Last year it was 61 degrees. In Australia we used to meet 61 or 62 degrees. It is not just the matter about the temperature. It also about the circuit layout and humidity. We just consider the tyre and not about the riders, suspension or supplier of other like braking. We prefer too have a lot of grip and we do have a lot of grip compared to the last year Pirelli SC Zero. We got something is the middle of the softest that we got and the one in used in the qualifying. This solution is remarkably faster than the standard soft
