Kasma Daniel Kasmayudin of YAMAHA GEN BLU Racing Team ASEAN took a leap in the final practice of Round 2 and emerged fastest for the Asia Superbike 1000cc category.

The Malaysian rider aboard the Yamaha YZF-R1M seem to have found his pace this time around when he clocked in at 2:07:737s, seconds ahead of Md Zaqhwan Zaidi who was taking the lead in the first two practices.

Kasma said, “Luck was not particularly on my side for the race at Buriram as I faced multiple mechanical issues with the machine. Even today, practice 1 and 2 posed challenges however my team did a good job to ensure the issues were rectified. That definitely contributed to a better lap time.”

Commenting on the tyres, “I perform better using the hard compound tires for the rear and medium compound for the front. With the soft compound, I am unable to get good lap times.”

Zaqhwan of Honda Asia-Dream Racing with SHOWA took the second fastest spot, logging in at 2:07:759s.

Behind the duo, Japanese rider Yuki Ito took the third fastest spot when he marked at 2:07:848s.
