Career[edit]

125cc World Championship[edit]

Born in Banting, Selangor, Malaysia, Khairuddin made his debut in the 125cc world championship at the 2009 Malaysian Grand Prix where he finished 20th. In 2010, Khairuddin competed in his first full season on board an Aprilia for the Air Asia-Sepang International Circuit.

Moto3 World Championship[edit]

Khairuddin finally achieved his first ever Moto3 podium as he finished in second position at the 2012 Portuguese Grand Prix,[1] and achieved the first pole position by a Malaysian rider in any class at his home race in October 2012.[2] Khairuddin led for most of the race, but finished second behind team-mate Sandro Cortese, after Cortese made a final-lap pass. At the end of the 2012 MotoGP campaign at Valencia, he claimed the 2nd podium of his career; he climbed from 17th on the grid to finish 3rd behind Danny Kent and Sandro Cortese in a dramatic thrilling race.
