The SuperSports 600cc today was brought into an elaborate schedule with their final practice session in the morning and the qualifying session in the noon. Andi Farid Izdihar of ASTRA HONDA Racing Team made the fastest cut today at the Qualifying Session.

The task has never been easy for any rider of the SS600 category who have to constantly build up their portfolio considering the robust rivalry between them. After the final practice session for the round, Andi emerged as the fastest in the combined practice result sheet, with his fastest at 2’10:191s. Nakarin Atiratphuvapat of HONDA Racing Thailand made the second fastest at 2’11:002s
followed by Md Helmi Azman of Boon Siew HONDA Racing Team at 2’11:435s.

At the fourth fastest spot, it was Azroy Hakeem Anuar of Boon Siew HONDA Racing Team at 2’11:490s and at the fifth fastest, it was Galang Hendra Pratama of YAMAHA Racing Indonesia at 2’11:559s.

In the qualifying session, Andi once again flexed his muscles to obtain the best spot on the grid. Although the competition was stiff with his contenders just seconds away, he managed to complete the session ahead at 2’23:770s.

Commenting on the session, Andi said, “I am truly happy with the pole position but our main concern would be to understand the rain condition in this circuit. This would be the first time we are riding in a rainy situation so I want to analyse everything that happens and review the possibilities that could happen.”

“In the beginning, it was quite good but towards the end, I found myself struggling with the grip. But I am happy to have managed it well in the last lap. Tomorrow, rain or shine, I would be more prepared for the races. Of course, the target is always to win the race and we have worked really hard for it.”

Coming it at the second fastest spot would be Nakarin at 2’23:868s.

In the third was Kritchaporn Kaewsonthi of HONDA RACING Thailand, logging in at 2’25:173s.
