GERRY PICKS UP POINTERS FROM TEAMMATE FOR SEPANG

Honda Asia-Dream Racing with SHOWA rider, Gerry Salim is thrilled to ride at the Sepang International Circuit for Round 2 of the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship.

The dexterous ASB1000 rider has gathered experience from numerous international platforms however riding at the ARRC proved to be an entirely different ballgame for Gerry. It was not his best moment at Round 1 as he struggled with his pace.

Gerry scored the 8th and 9th spot for Race 1 and 2 respectively.

Commenting on the race in Round 1, Gerry said, “It was not a satisfactory race for me as I encountered issues with the setup of the Honda CBR1000RR R, one of which would have been manageable with more lap time.”

“My challenge for Round 2 would be closing the gaps between the riders leading the pack. I intend to pick up some pointers from my teammate Zaqhwan who is more familiar and experienced with the circuit. I look forward to improving my performance at Round 2.”

As for the team manager, Mr Makoto Tamada said, “The team is working on the settings of the bike to ensure that safety is of utmost priority while speed is up to the mark.”

“Our strategies are designed to heighten the performances of our riders and to achieve the best outcome. We will devise our strategies further once we have received the relevant data.”
