PETALING JAYA: Japanese riders fired the first salvo on their home ground in the fourth round of the Petronas Asia Road Racing Championships (ARRC) at the Suzuka circuit.
In Friday’s free practice sessions, Yuki Ito of Petronas Hong Leong Yamaha clocked the fastest time of 2:15.030 in the SuperSports 600cc class. Katsuaki Fujiwara of BEET Kawasaki Racing was second fastest in 2:15.466.
Ito, however, was far from satisfied with his performance.
“Today’s time is still far from my personal best here. In the All Japan race here, I managed to dip inside the 2:12 mark. But I’m confident I can lower the time in qualifying tomorrow,” said Ito.
Malaysia’s Mohd Zaqhwan Zaidi of Musashi Boon Siew Honda was third fastest in 2:15.535.
In the Underbone 130cc class, Indonesia’s Gupita Kresna Wardhana of Kawasaki KYT Rextor Manual Tech was the fastest with a time of 2:46.190.
Malaysia’s Ahmad Fazrul Sham of Harian Metro Y-TEQ SCK registered the second fastest time of 2:47.977 while Indonesia’s Hokky Krisdianto of Outdo Koyoko Motul Yamaha YY Pang was third fastest in 2:48.090.
