After suffering injury at the Spanish MotoGP in May this year, Malaysian Moto3 racer Khairul Idham Pawi, better known to fans as SuperKIP, will concentrate on a return to Moto3 in 2020. Having undergone a third operation in the Kuala Lumpur Sports Medicine Centre earlier this week, Khairul has spent all of the 2019 MotoGP season recuperating.
His place in the Petronas Sprinta Racing Moto2 team will be taken by fellow Malaysian Adam Norrodin. “The recovery from my injury is taking a long time, which has been disappointing. There’s not much that I’ve been able to do apart from keep working, but hopefully this latest operation will help me to recover,” said Khairul.
Khairul began his MotoGP career in Moto3 with Honda in 2015, netting two race wins in 2016 before making the move to Moto2 in 2017. The Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix takes place at Sepang International Circuit from November 1 to 3, with main grandstand tickets priced at RM220 already sold out, as are tickets for Marc Marquez Tribune and F Grandstand and C2 Hillstand, priced at RM275 and RM88, respectively.
However, tickets for Premier Roving with access to the Main Grandstand, VR46 Tribune, F Grandstand and C2 Hillstand are still available at RM330. Fans of Hafizh Syahrin can access the tribune area at the main grandstand for RM275 and ticket holders are entitled to special HS55 merchandise while Valentino Rossi fans can get tickets for the VR46 tribune at RM176.
