AirAsia has continued its support of Malaysian MotoGP rider, Zulfahmi Khairuddin in his 2013 campaign in the Moto3 category for the world championship.

AirAsia began sponsoring Zulfahmi in his debut race at the Malaysian Grand Prix back in 2009 through the AirAsia Malaysia Wildcard Program.

 The rider who is better known as Fahmi surpassed all expectations and had a stellar season last year. Riding for Team AirAsia-SIC-Ajo Motorsport, he made history by becoming the first Malaysian rider to qualify in pole position and made it to the podium twice. At the end of the season, he was ranked 7th in the championship with 128 points; a feat no other ASEAN rider has achieved before.

 The sponsorship is part of AirAsias ongoing commitment to nurture young talents and provide a platform for them to excel globally. Fahmis achievements have proven that with proper support and hard work, Malaysia is able to produce our own heroes and stars. He now serves as an inspiration to all, said AirAsia Berhad Chief Executive Officer, Aireen Omar Dreams are important as it is one of the catalysts for success and we are glad to have been part of Fahmis dreams all this while. We are extremely proud of his achievements and hope that he will continue to create history and get more podium finishes in the upcoming season.

Zulfahmi Khairuddin said AirAsia have been supporting me since the beginning of my MotoGP career and I am extremely happy that they will continue their support. I am grateful for this as it has helped make my dream come true. I will surely do my best this year to make Malaysia proud.

This year Fahmi will be racing in the Red Bull KTM Ajo team together with Spaniard Luis Salom and Arthur Sissis of Australia in the Moto3 category.

The 2013 season begins with the Grand Prix of Qatar at the Losail Circuit from 4 to 7 April and will feature 18 races including the AirAsia Grand Prix of Japan.
