Professional "rempits"

Wednesday, March 30, 2011
They are not mere 'rempits' but kings of the race tracks. And I had a chance to meet them last October. My husband had to interview them for an article and asked me to tag along as his photographer. I am not that tere but I gave it a try and being unprepared I only bought my 50mm lens along with no extrenal flash. Anyway, let's meet the wunderkinds.

This is Ramdan Md Rosli, 15 and winner of last year's Cub Prix category of CP130.

He has many of those cups.

In fact he has a cupboard full of trophy cups.

We asked him for a few poses with his racing cups.
But of course not every picture will be used by the editor.

His parents are very supportive but they insist that they won't let him ride a motorcycle on the road as he is only 15.

Next up is

Adib Rosley, 17 who is the Wira Champion - Malaysian Cub Prix Championship 2010

As usual a pose with one of his cups.
One side of his living room wall is full of racing posters and trophies.

And with his father Mr Rosley who passed on his passion for racing to 3 of his kids by buying them mini motorcycles. But only Adib is active in racing.

Father, son and his youngest daughter posing with an old mini bike which now decorates their living room.

As an amateur photographer I was thankful that these boys are a natural in front of the camera. Ramdan looked a bit shy but posed naturally on camera while Adib was all smiley and friendly in front and off camera.
