|2nd National automakers Perodua has confirmed Moto3 racer Zulfahmi Khairuddin as the MyVi variant’s ambassador. For a period of two years until December 2014, Zulfahmi will endorse Perodua’s best selling variant to the masses.|
Khairuddin commented enthusiastically about his appointment as Perodua’s ambassador, “It is indeed a great honor for me to be chosen to be the ambassador for the iconic Perodua Myvi as it is the most popular model in the country and on my part, I will try to make Perodua proud.”
The Malaysian-born Khairuddin first burst into the two-wheel racing scene at the 2009 Malaysian Grand Prix 125cc category. The youngster who races on the KTM 250 FFR embarks on his fifth year in the 125cc/Moto3 class. Last season, Zul as he’s known by his peers scored two podium finishes, a pole position and three fastest laps for a cumulative 128 points; 7th best in the Moto3 class. One of his podium finishes of 2012 included a second place at his home track.
According to Perodua’s President and CEO Dato’ Aminar Rashid, “We chose Zulfahmi as Perodua’s Myvi ambassador because we believe that he is a disciplined, driven and focused – a good role model for today’s youths.”
As part of his two-year contract and duties to endorse Perodua, Khairuddin will be a regular fixture in upcoming Perodua advertising campaigns and media activities. Needless to say, Perodua is very likely going to partake in October’s MotoGP Malaysian round.
