Female riders are nothing new to the motorsports industry, but the sport seems to be rapidly gaining acceptance in Malaysia. In 2016, the PETRONAS AAM Malaysian Cub Prix Championship boasts four female riders competing in the male-dominated sport. They are Siti Norafizah Mohamad, Siti Fatimah Husna Muslim, Nasha Edziera Bahauddin and Nuraina Halisya Hamirudin.

Of the four, Siti Norafizah (Fifie) is the most experienced. Making her Cub Prix debut in 2011, 21-year-old Fifie has been smashing myths in the male-dominated sport throughout her racing career. She spent the early years of her Cub Prix involvement proving her worth in the Pro-Am Cup before finally securing a spot with team BHPetrol Dash Tabuan Racing.

Making her Cub Prix debut in 16, 20-year-old Fifie has been smashing myths in the male-dominated sport throughout her racing career.

“The race track is one arena where a smaller body size and lighter weight can be an advantage,” said Fifie who proved that point by claiming six podium finishes in the Pro-Am division last season.

Nasha is also another familiar name in the Cub Prix circuit. Racing since 2009, Nasha currently competes in the Pro-Am category as a privateer and is hoping to follow in Fifie’s footsteps to find a berth with a professional racing outfit.

New to the class are Siti Fatimah Husna Muslim and Nuraina Halisya Hamirudin, both debutants entering the sport in CP115 and Wira categories.
