PETALING JAYA: Veteran rider Norizman Ismail (pic) died after crashing during the Petronas AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championship’s CP150 timed practice session in Round Three at the Bandar Baru Kijal in Kemaman, Terengganu, yesterday.
According to a statement released by the race organisers – Safe Aim Mutual – the 32-year-old Norizman crashed at Turn 1 and slid into the air-fence.
It also stated that the marshals and paramedics rushed to treat Norizman at the crash scene while a red flag was waved at 3.52pm to halt the practice session.
