A very much heated up challenge amongst the top most Asian racing teams and riders is what exactly the Malaysian Super Series is. It is a battle where these teams and riders try to climb a steep slope towards ultimate success in the world of Motorsports, using the mean of this premium motorsports event in Asia. Amongst the various teams competing to get into the pinnacle position was the Ten10 racing team which was given a prestigious position in the Super Sport Open Class by number 59, Emmanuel Jebaraj. The first race weekend was held on May 29th and 30th at Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia.
Emmanuel Jebaraj hit the race track with the bike which was built by Bike Lab Singapore for the qualifying session on the 29th of May.
