Khairul Idham and Adam Norrodin struggle to impress at US Grand Prix

Despite a sensational weekend at the Argentina Grand Prix last week, national Moto3 rider Khairul Idham Pawi was unable to repeat his heroics in the United States Grand Prix earlier today as he could only managed to secure a disappointing P20 finish in the main race.

But of course, less was expected from this race, considering that Khairul was forced to start the race from the second last grid (P32), after struggling with weather issues during the qualifying session.

“Starting from P32 and ending at P20 was a tough week for me,’ Khairul said as quoted from Berita Harian.

Khairul is now determined to bounce back and make amends in the following race in Jerez.

“Can’t wait for the next race! Thank you for all of your support!”

Drive M7 SIC’s Adam Norrodin also didn’t fare well despite starting from P6. The 17 year-old fell from his bike for the second time in three races – this time he fell during the opening lap.
