Zhuhai (China), Oct 14 (IANS): Indian champion Krishnan Rajini hopes to get some momentum in his campaign as he prepares for the fifth round of the FIM Petronas Asia Road Racing Championship here this weekend.
Presently in 27th position with just four points as against his Moto-Rev India team-mate Toshiyuki Hamagachi who is fifth with 64, Rajini, fresh from winning the National title in Chennai last week, hoped that he would put in a strong performance here.
"I am very excited to be back in China, because this is a bike-friendly track. In 2009, I was timing 1:42:200 around the ZIC (Zhuhai International circuit). So I cannot wait to see how much better I have got, through all the fitness programs combined with the superior technical ability of my team's Race Engineers," said Rajini, the 31-year old Chennai-based rider.
Hamaguchi said: "I had a bad crash last week in the JSB1000 race in Japan. But I am 100 percent fit and raring to go for the Zhuhai GP. We are surely targeting the podium."
