Immamudin and Zaidi Win Races in Indonesia

The second round of Asia Road Racing Championship was held at Sentul Circuit in Indonesia. Known as rough surface, it is one of the  challenging course which both the teams and the riders find difficulties for setting and riding itself. In the free practice on the first day of the week, Md Zaqhwan Zaidi (MuSASHi Boon Siew Honda Racing)appealed that he was in good shape, braking the course record of Aslan, his team-mate in the last year. Zamri Baba (MuSASHi Boon Siew Honda Racing) who got double-win in the opener also broke the record to win the pole position in the qualifying, and saying "Checked the data up to now, we used medium compound tire in the first free practice and changed to the softer ones considering about the wearing. I think the decision was very good to make my lap times faster dramatically.”

“To be honest, I have not expected to exceed Azulan's record here because he was particularly fast. I am able to satisfied with my lap time and it gave me a confidence for the first since 2011 when I started racing in 600cc class. Although Bubba took the PP, I thought likely I could have a good race. It was a difficult race, but I could fight with strong feelings to win because my team made my machine ready for it. I think I was able to make a difference.”

We had Koyama and Iwata in the Asia Road Racing Championship and All Japan Road Racing Championship, and the riders of and Fadli UNDERBONE  also joined this year. I am deeply moved with this victory which finally grabbed after 8 times of challenge. I climbed on the podium as a team manager this time and felt much happier than before when I was a rider. I am deeply grateful for our sponsors and supporters. We challenged with strong feelings to win this race. I want to keep having the spirit for the future. Thank you very much.”

SS600 Race Result: 10th / DNF Championship position: 6th
“My feeling was good until warm up session before the finals, so I had enough confidence for the race. But the weather had changed before the race started and I had to ride in the wet condition with the setting for dry. It was the feeling that I have never experienced before and I could not open the throttle like I want. As the surface drying, my lap times were coming faster. But it was too late. In race 2, I was also disappointed. I need to change my feelings and aim victories in the next race at Autopolis in Japan.”
Teppei Nagoshi:

I will try my best to win again in the Japanese round.”
