RHEZA KEPT UP DESPITE RPM CUT

The Asia Production 250cc race category once again called the riders for an ambitious ride in Round 3 of the Idemitsu FIM Asia Road Racing Championship that was held at Sportsland Sugo International Racing Course. Rheza Danica Ahrens of ASTRA HONDA RACING TEAM took the call graciously and emerged fastest in the practice sessions, combined that was held earlier today.

In the practice session 1 that was carried out earlier in the morning, Muklada Sarapuech of Honda Racing Thailand made a positive start when she logged in fastest at 1’41:529s. At the second fastest spot was Irfan Ardiansyah of Motul Sniper Manual Tech Racing, clocking in his best lap time at 1’41:696s. Third was Veda Ega Pratama of ASTRA HONDA RACING TEAM with his best time at 1’42:154s. In practice session 2, Aiki Iyoshi of Motul Sniper Manual Tech made a new lap record with his fastest at 1’40:695s. Muklada showed consistency when she emerged second fastest at 1’41:129s whereas Irfan made it third fastest with an improved lap time at 1’41:201s.

In the practice session 3, Rheza Danica who has been laying low in the first two sessions emerged fastest with a new lap record at 1’39:764s. Irfan made it second fastest while Muklada marked third fastest at 1’39:893s and 1’39:986s respectively. With that, Rheza claimed the fastest in the combined session for the day. It was quite an impressive move by Rheza this time around considering his performance last season where he only took home 2 points from the race here.

Commenting on the session today, Rheza said, “Considering the cut in the RPM, I have to work extra hard now. But overall, though, I have been feeling good. This season has been good and I have been able to do so much more. Hopefully I am able to retain the same quality in performance for the qualifying session tomorrow.” Irfan and Muklada took the second and third position respectively in the practice session, combined.
