ADAM TAKES PROVISIONAL POLE, WHILE KASMA AND PEERAPONG TAKES IT SLOW

Adam Norrodin (SIC Junior ZK Racing Team) picked up provisional pole on Friday after setting 1’38.981s in the third practice session at the final leg of the 2019 FIM Asia Road Racing Championship in Buriram, Thailand.

 

The first day of practice in the SuperSports 600cc class was a tame affair with both Peerapong Boonlert and Kasma Daniel Kasmayudin already confirmed on the top rungs of the championship ladder.

 

Kasma was 0.134s behind Adam in second while Peerapong Boonlert was uncharacteristically slow, picking up only 1’39.151s to place third on the combined timesheets.

 

Behind the top three riders, Ahmad Afif Amran had been making great strides in the SuperSports 600cc class. The Malaysian rider bettered his personal best time by almost a second, to land provisional P4 on Friday. Boon Siew Honda Racing Team’s Azroy Hakeem Anuar posted fifth fastest with 1’40.407s.

 

Word in the paddock is that Peerapong Boonlert is busy planning an elaborate victory celebration to commemorate the fact that he is the second in his family to win the FIM Asian title. Catch the live telecast this Sunday to find out what Peerapong is really up to.
