ADENANTA CARVES FIRST VICTORY THIS SEASON

Asia Production 250cc category completed Round 3 when Race 2 ended with Md Adenanta Putra of ASTRA Honda Racing Team topping the chart at the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship which was held at Sugo International Racing Course.

In the first four laps, Adenanta took lead with Rheza Danica Ahrens close behind, lurking for a chance to beat him at P1. However, Adenanta had his footing strong on the ground as he circled four laps at P1 before Aiki Iyoshi made his move to grab the spot.

It was then a fiery battle between Aiki and Adenanta who went in and out of P1 before Aiki found his pace back at P1 for the remaining five laps. However, at the last lap, Adenanta found the opportunity to switch positions with Aiki and as the race heated up with the latter revving on to take dominance, a casualty struck, dragging down three riders including Aiki.

The casualty was an open goal for Adenanta who was already leading, to make a dash across the finish line. He marked his fastest at 20’35:492s.

Commenting on the race, Adenanta said, “First of all, I would like to thank everyone who has been truly supportive of my endeavours especially my team of mechanics and crew who have worked their best to enhance the performance of the machine.”

“For today’s race, I pushed myself from the very beginning. Mid lap however, my tires were already wearing out and it became a little challenging. Nevertheless, I managed to keep up to the rhythm and at the last lap, I made it ahead of others.”

Quickly taking the P2 and the second spot on the podium was Aldi Satya Mahendra of YAMAHA Racing Indonesia at 20’38:742s.

At third place, it was Herjun Atna Firdaus of ASTRA HONDA Racing Team, logging in at 20’41:740s.
