PETRONAS Sprinta Racing and Khairul Idham Pawi to part ways

2020-10-20 08:24
After two seasons with PETRONAS Sprinta Racing, Malaysian Moto3 rider Khairul Idham Pawi will leave the team at the end of the 2020 season. The team has supported KIP through two difficult seasons and it is clear that a change of direction will now be beneficial for both parties in order for them to fulfil their potential.

Khairul Idham Pawi joined PETRONAS Sprinta Racing in 2019 to ride in the Moto2 category. After a tough season due to a hand injury, the team and KIP decided to compete in the Moto3 class this year, where the Malaysian rider had achieved two wins in previous years. The team and KIP will continue working together throughout the next four races, aiming to finish their collaboration with the best results possible.

PETRONAS Sprinta Racing wishes Khairul Idham Pawi all the best for the future and thank him for his full commitment to the team.

Razlan Razali
Team Principal

Whilst recognising the talent and potential of KIP, it’s clear that after two years together we have not been able to achieve our shared goals. Clearly, injury has played a part in KIP’s performance over the past two seasons, but looking to the future we have both agreed that a different direction for both parties is necessary. We wish KIP the very best in his future career.
