A prominent figure during Malaysia’s golden age of motor racing, Yusni Yahya has gone from coaching champions like Shahrol Yuzy Ahmad Zaini and Ibrisam Daud to fixing motorcycles in a small tent outside his home.
This workshop in Taman Medan, Petaling Jaya looks like any other but Yusni Yahya is far from just an ordinary mechanic.
A motorcycle racer in his younger days, Yusni gave it all up to concentrate on being a mechanic instead.
All that remains of his old life now is a collection of photographs capturing his moments in the fast lane.
This newspaper clipping highlights his accomplishment of grooming Grand Prix rider Shahrol Yuzy.
Yusni's most valued possession: a trophy inscribed with the words "Mr Ayus, The Champion Maker".
Despite his many achievements, Yusni is now a forgotten figure in the motor racing scene.
He earns a living fixing motorcycles together with his son Awal Mohamad Al Fikri.
But his dreams live on in Awal, who wants to be a motorcycle racer himself one day.
