He was an experienced motorcyclist and a careful racer. So careful that when news broke on Sunday that Singaporean biker Milton Poh Kim Seng, 41 , had crashed, his family couldn’t believe he had died.
A close relative, who declined to be named, told The New Paper yesterday: “It was a freak accident. I was shocked when I found out about it.”
Mr Poh, who was a leading steward with Singapore Airlines, was killed in an accident at the Sepang International Circuit while racing in the Malaysian Super Series.
He was involved in a crash with Italian racer Leonardo Sacchetto, 42, shortly after the race flagged off at around 12.30pm.
