Mystery legend to race at Sepang

The Malaysian circuit will host its second World Superbike event this year after a successful inaugural round in 2014. 

However, in order to draw in a larger crowd, the organisers have convinced a legend of the sport to participate in the race but are keeping his identity a secret.

"We are currently working on the finer details of the agreement," SIC CEO Dato' Razlan Razali said. "We are very excited with this collaboration and we are confident that motorcycling fans would be equally excited when the announcement is made very soon.

"The legendary rider will be competing in the World Superbike Championship. We had Zaqhwan Zaidi last year competing in the World Supersport Championship. We are continuing with the wildcard programme this year; but with an entirely different approach by sponsoring an international big name."
