The TVS Asia One Make Championship is on once again for Round 2 of the Idemitsu FIM Asia Road Racing Championship which is being held at Sepang International Circuit. Round 1 posed adrenaline rush and exhilaration as riders with solid experience and background took the scene by a storm. Vorapong Malahuan of Thailand however was determined to take lead and made it when he emerged with a double triumph.

In the Free Practice 1 session earlier this morning, home-boy Ramdan Rosli made the fastest at 2’21:905s. Piyawat Patoomyos of Thailand made it second fastest at 2’21:972 followed by Md Muzakkir Mohamed of Malaysia at 2’22:299s.

During Practice 2, Muzakkir made fastest at 2’21:880s. Piyawat once again came up as the second fastest at 2’22:261s while Ramdan who was stronger in the earlier session made it third fastest at 2’22:445s. In the combined result, Muzakir clocked in the fastest followed by fellow countryman, Ramdan who took the second fastest spot and Piyawat at the third spot.

Commenting on the session, Muzakkir said, “This round, I have been careful in terms of strategy especially in managing the tires. In Buriram, I was not aware that we were only allocated with two sets of tires. Therefore, I avoided long-run this time around by reducing the number of laps. Of course, I had to find the right setup as soon as possible for that purpose.”

“In the 1st session, I figured out quite quickly on what needs to be done for the machine which resulted in a good outcome in practice 2. I managed to get a good lap time within three laps. For the race, my target would be to be at the podium but I want to be optimistic and I am confident that I can take the win. Having said that though, it also depends on the weather so keeping my fingers crossed, all will go well.”
