Taking his first Asian Dream Cup win in India two months ago has given Broc Pearson the boost of confidence he needed to continue with his winning ways. The lanky Australian rider topped the Asia Dream Cup timesheets in both free practice sessions as the final leg of the 2016 FIM Asia Road Racing Championship got underway at the Chang International Circuit.

Broc set the pace early in the session when he posted 02’04.169s in the first practice. His fastest time held for the second free practice session. The only rider to come close was Malaysian Mohd Hafiz Nor Azman who posted 02’04.236s as the second fastest rider. Indonesian Yassiin Gabriel Somma also showed good progress when he finished third fastest with 02’04.279s.

For once, newly minted Asia Dream Cup Champion Hiroki Nakamura took a back seat and logged fourth quickest with 02’04.430s. Nakamura leads the second row comprising of Thai rider Sittipon Srimoontree and China’s Zhou Sheng Jun Jie who were fifth and sixth fastest respectively.
