Apiwath Wongthananon, the dynamic rider from Thailand who has been capturing spotlight in the Supersports 600cc at IDEMITSU FIM Asia Road Racing Championship. As a pivotal member of the YAMAHA TEKHNE Racing Team ASIA, Apiwath has consistently flaunted his prowess on the track, leaving spectators in awe and competitors trailing in his wake.

The recent Round 1 of the championship held at the Chang International Circuit in Thailand validated Apiwath’s exceptional skills. Despite the pressure of performing in front of a home crowd, he delivered a masterclass in racing, securing victories in both Race 1 and Race 2. His ability to maintain a significant lead over his rivals demonstrated not only his speed but also his strategic acumen on the circuit.

Apiwath’s track record in the previous season may have been limited to just one round, but it was a memorable one. In that solitary appearance at the Chang International Circuit, he clinched second place in Race 1 and emerged victorious in Race 2. His teammate, Soichiro Minamimoto, also contributed significantly to the team’s success by securing a win in Race 1 and finishing second in Race 2, ultimately leading to their team’s unexpected triumph.

However, as Apiwath himself acknowledges, the true test of a champion lies in their ability to excel beyond familiar territory. With Round 2 of the championship scheduled to take place at the Zhuhai International Circuit in China, Apiwath faces a real challenge – one that revisits his skills on terrain he hasn’t raced on in quite some time. Despite his track record of dominance on his home circuit, Apiwath acknowledged the necessity to adapt and evolve in response to readdressing the challenges of Zhuhai international Circuit.

Apiwath said: Although it’s been some time since I last raced here, I’m confident in my abilities and preparation. I anticipate delivering a strong performance and showcasing my capabilities in Round at Zhuhai.”
