KUALA LUMPUR –  After meeting the podium target in Portugal, young national rider Adam Norrodin (picture) is determined to continue his excellent performance at the FIM CEV Repsol 2021 Championship at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, Valencia, Spain next month.

The Liqui Moly Intact SIC Racing Team rider for the Moto2 race hopes that the hard work shown by his teammates during last week’s race can continue in the next race.

“Alhamdulillah (thanks to AlIah), I met  the target to get a podium position in the first race, thanks to the crew involved who worked hard as well as to all who supported me to ensure it (success) happened this week.

“In the second race there was a mistake in the early stages but I still managed to finish in fourth place, so there is still room for improvement in the race in Valencia,” he said in a video recording to reporters, today.

Yesterday, Adam finished the first race at the Estoril Circuit, Lisbon in third place with a time of 30 minutes and 49.938 seconds.

The race was won by Spanish rider Fermin Aldeguer of the Boscoscuro Talent Team-Ciatti team who clocked 30: 40.737s while his compatriot and teammate Alonso Lopez was second (30: 42.154s).

In the second race, Adam had to settle for fourth place with a time of  30: 51.207s, coming behind German teammate Lukas Tulovic (30: 44.795s) while Aldeguer and Lopez each defended their top two positions with times of 30: 41.626s and 30: 41.664s respectively.
