Hiroki Ono from Japan took the win today in Race 1 of the TVS Asia One Make Championship, Round 3 of the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship which was held in Sugo International Racing Course.

Hiroki was undoubtedly impressive in his performances throughout the race. Taking the pole position on the grid, he took speed as soon as the race flagged off leaving a trail of riders on the chase. Hiroki’s consistency kept him at the lead position as he continued to flaunt his dexterity, not the least bit threatened by his contender in P2.

During the practice sessions yesterday, Hiroki marked fastest in the first one at 1’44:006s and fell one spot down during the second session at 1’42:860s. Nevertheless, it was all about carving a recognition today. In the circuit known for its technical strain, Hiroki was unbeatable when he kept to his pace.

He completed Race 1 with flying colours when he clocked in at 17’09:712s.

Commenting on the race, Hiroki said, “In the beginning of the race, I made a good start. I tried to stay consistent with my lap time. Mid race however, the tires were giving way. I had to continue and ensure that I keep up with the momentum. I noticed the gap behind me and kept my focus on completing the race.”

“In the end, I managed to get the first place. I thank all TVS crew for the great work.”

Coming in at the second spot was Vorapong Malahuan from Thailand who marked his best at 17’10:727s. While he made the fastest mark in the practice session yesterday, he failed to live up to the same momentum today.

At third place, it was Fugo Tanaka from Japan, clocking in at 17’16:710s.
