With the practice sessions and qualifying rounds on Saturday witnessing close contests, the races of the third leg of the Petronas Asia Road Racing Championship, to be held on Sunday, promises to be a high octane affair.

Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman proved his mettle once again by taking the coveted pole position with a new lap record of 01:42.909s.

Azlan’s team mate Makoto Tamada powered his own Honda to second on the grid with 01:43.593s.

This makes it Tamada’s best start in the race, after struggling with bike setting issues for the past two rounds.

Mohd Zamri Baba, who has been consistently fast the entire weekend, will take up the third spot on the front row with 01:43.713s.
