“It all started out as a wish and a dream.” That’s the typical response one would get from this 25-year old rider from Negeri Sembilan. His entry into 2-wheel racing started for Zamri Baba at the tender age of 14 when he went to see some of his older friends race at the old Batu Tiga circuit in Shah Alam. From then on, what was initially just a dream became a real interest. With the help of the seniors, Zamri was given his chance and he never looked back.

His debut as a full-fledged racer came in 2003 and it was not long before he notched his first win, clinching the championship in the Wira Category the following year. Moving up the ranks, Zamri progressed to the Novice level and in 2006 took the title in an emphatic fashion.

A year later, Zamri was given the opportunity to progress to regional-level competition debuting with the PETRONAS SPRINTA Yamaha Malaysia Team in the FIM ARRC where he quickly made his presence felt, finishing 6th overall in his debut season, a position he improved further in 2008 finishing 4th overall.
