2016 OVERALL CHAMPION FROM MALAYSIA RECUPERATES FROM SERIOUS INJURY
KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA, 15 NOVEMBER 2017 – Malaysia’s SuperMoto ace, Muhd Habibullah or better known as Gabit, will be absent from the 2017 FIM Asia SuperMoto Championship – Taiwan after a motocross accident that ruptured his lungs last month. This will leave his Malaysian comrade, Khairi Zakaria, to a lonely fight for the overall championship title.
“I am sad because I won’t be racing in Taiwan. Doctor has advised me to rest temporarily for my lungs to heal. However, I would like to thank my fans, sponsors, Team KTM Malaysia ELF Racing and the organiser for their understanding and support.
