Malaysian rider Ramdan Rosli joins Kyle Wyman Racing XR1200 lineup for Indianapolis GP
MACEDON, N.Y. (Aug. 5) -- Kyle Wyman Racing is pleased to announce the
return of a Malaysian rider to their Harley-Davidson series lineup.
18-year-old Ramdan Rosli will make his AMA Pro Racing debut at the
Indianapolis GP this weekend riding the #39 PETRONAS/KWR Harley-Davidson
Rosli currently competes in the FIM CEV Repsol Moto3 Championship under
the PETRONAS Talent Devlopment Program, a multi-faceted motorsports
enterprise designed to uncover and develop young talent in both two and
four-wheeled international competition.
"I'm very excited to have another young rider from the PETRONAS program
join our team this year for the Harley-Davidson races at Indianapolis,"
said Kyle Wyman, owner of KWR. "Last year we had Hafizh Syahrin, who won
race two on a KWR XR1200. Ramdan is another wildly talented young man
and I am honored to be providing him with a top-notch motorcycle."
Syahrin utilized the Harley-Davidson series race at Indianapolis last
year to learn the circuit, and will be competing in the Moto2 series
this weekend as part of his full-time world championship effort.
"I am looking forward for the weekend," Rosli stated. "Riding a
Harley-Davidson will be a totally new experience for me. The most
important thing for me is to learn the circuit and get the most out of
this arrangement. I hope to learn as much as possible from Kyle as well
and accelerate my learning curve."
"We are excited over the deal that we did with KWR for the coming
weekend," said Kenny Chua, PETRONAS AHM Malaysia. "We are looking at
whatever possibility that we can to ride at GP circuits. This is one of
the opportunities for us to ride at a GP circuit and it is extra special
with a Harley-Davidson at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Ramdan will have the opportunity to learn directly with Kyle on the
circuit as he himself will be riding. We can't wait to be there!"
