In his closing address to the 20 Ninja riders, Steven Ong, the CEO of Bikeart Racing said:

“Bikeart Racing Academy has a proven and tested track record in the organising of the Ninja 250R Championship.  Amongst those who have gone through with our training are the Baharudin brothers Zamani, Fuad and Nashrul,  Haslanshah and Husni Aizat, a graduate from the 2012 SIC Ninja 250 Cup series.”

Steven continued to motivate the young SIC Ninja 250R riders by saying “Whether you are the first or the last all of you are part of the Ninja 250R  and must show your best attitude and character in and out of the track.  Of course the best rider will win in the race but how can he win if he does not have a good team to support him.  In Bikeart, therefore the emphasis in on team work, the mechanics, crew and the trainers and facilitators will have to do their 100% best.  On the track the riders will often have to give 110% or even 120% because sometimes the conditions are not optimal. ”

“Your training is not over yet. The reason why many of you find this training tough is because you are not physically fit and mentally prepared.  Commit on your team to win and you will win forever.  Correct your attitude and always do your best.  The third round is in September and all riders have been given a 16 minit training program and specific nutrition guide by the trainers.  All riders must stick to their training program because it will show at the end of September”
