Md Adenanta Putra of ASTRA HONDA Racing Team completed the race with flying colours at Round 4 of the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship held at the Sepang International Circuit this weekend.

Adenanta was off to a good start when he bolted ahead to P1 as soon as the race flagged off. Pole-man Andy unfortunately lost his pace and fell two positions down. In the first lap, the latter was seen trying to find his momentum however his moves failed. In the second lap, as Aldi Satya took over P1, Andy grew further away from the top three circle.

In the third lap, Rheza Danica seemed to have found control of his machine as he went on to lead the troop of riders however by the fourth lap, the lead was grabbed by Herjun Atna. By mid-race, Adenanta managed to move himself up from P2 and with three more laps to go, he was determined to guard his position with all his might. As he picked up speed in the sixth lap, his teammate Rheza
kept himself close by before making his move to take over P1 at the seventh lap.

With one more lap to go, the ASTRA HONDA Racing Team riders teamed up and took dominance of the circuit with Adenanta back in P1. Yamaha rider, Aldi tailed close behind the trio at P4. While Adenanta kept steady at P1, Aldi was waiting to strike and by the final quarter of the lap, he took over P3. That was not enough for Aldi as he went on into one final battle at the last turn. After almost colliding into Rheza, Aldi managed to take control of his machine and bolted ahead, clocking in second at 19’47:120s.

Md Adenanta Putra of ASTRA HONDA Racing Team claimed victory at 19’46:847s.

Commenting on the race, Adenanta said, “I struggled a little with the rear tire. However, I ignored and tried to stay focus on being in front. I stayed on consistent and managed my tires till the last lap. I am thrilled to have won the race.”
