Sunday, August 7, 2011: Despite missing out Round 2, Decha Kraisart means business in his SuperSports 600cc campaign as he put on a tremendous performance by winning both Race 1 and 2 in the SuperSports 600cc category at the third leg of the PETRONAS Asia Road Racing Championship that is being held at Madras Motor Race Track, Chennai today.

In Race 1, the 16-lap was red flagged at the 11th lap due to Michael Edward Jone’s crash and Decha Kraisart was named as the winner based on the 9th lap results. The Yamaha Thailand Racing rider had a slow start but he put up a strong performance to snatch the lead from Mohd Zamri Baba in Lap 5 and completed the race in a total time of 15:49.209s. Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman (Boon Siew Honda Racing Malaysia) finished the race second with the total time of 15:49.505s while Zamri of PETRONAS Yamaha Malaysia settled for third with the time of 15:49.910s.

In Race 2, Decha once again controlled his game well as he went all out to win his second race of the season. He completed the 16-lap race in a total time of 28.06.919s, 1.017s ahead of Zamri who finished second in a total time of 28:07.936s. Aaron Morris of Yamaha Indonesia secured his first ever podium by crossing the finish line third (28:08.074s).

On the other hand, Azlan who was leading the race in Lap 12 and 13 crashed in Lap 14 but managed to resume the race to finish 14th position.

Even though, the 30-year old rider did not have a perfect start but he was confident of his winning capability. “I feel good with my machine but it was not a stroll in a park for me. It was a thinking and planning game as I need to observe where are my rivals namely Zamri and Azlan weak points and when I can make my maneuvering move,” said the defending Champion who believes that the 2011 title chase is not a mission impossible task.

He went on to express, “I am absolutely glad to be back in my winning ways and I hope it will not just stop here. I am looking forward for the coming race that will be held in Japan next month.”

With the win, Decha has collected 57.5 points and he is currently fifth overall in the standings. Katsuaki Fujiwara of Manual-Tech BEET Kawasaki Racing who finished seventh and sixth in Race 1 and 2 respectively still tops the overall standings with 114.5 points while Azlan is second with 84 points, followed by Zamri with 65 points.

In the Team Awards, Manual-Tech BEET Kawasaki Racing pilots the standings with 114.5 points while Boon Siew Honda Racing Malaysia and Yamaha Thailand Racing is in second and third position with 91 and 77.5 points respectively.

As for the Underbone 115cc category, Rafid Topan Sucipto took full advantage of his pole position and stormed into victory in both the races.

In Race 1, the Yamaha CKJ TJM Racing rider was unstoppable as he managed to break away from the chasing pack by Lap 1 itself. The 17-year old rider completed the 10-lap race in a total time of 20:11.485s, 8.190s ahead of Hadi Wijaya. Hadi of Kawasaki NHK Rextor Manual Tech rider was happy to settle for the second placing with the total time of 20:19.675s. Meanwhile, Mohd Ramdan Mohd Rosli (PETRONAS Syntium Yamaha Moto AHM) who only joins in this round managed to finish the race third with the total time of 20:22.058s.

In Race 2, Rafid once again displayed another perfect outing by winning the race with the gap of 6.886s. He finished the race in a total time of 20:11.196s while Hadi finished second (20:18.082s). Third place went to Ahmad Afif Amran with the total time of 20:23.468s.

With another double victory, Rafid tops the overall standings with 125 points, followed by Hadi with 86 points while Shahril Izzuwan Mohd Noor who finished 11th in Race 1 and fourth in Race 1 ranks third with 76 points.

The Round 4 of the Championship will takes place at Autopolis International Racing Course, Japan on September 8-11. For more information about the Championship, kindly log on to Asia Road Racing Championship

Fantastic!

Hosting an international motor racing event is a big step forward for India and I hope there was a sizable crowd at the event to cheer on the participants.

The crowds were pretty good the first year and then there has been a steady decline. The marketing has to be blamed. Only a handful of race enthusiasts know this is happening. To promote the event a couple of races from the Indian National racing championship should be added as support races like what happens in AMA-GP at Laguna Seca. Our Group D Racing is brilliant and is indeed a spectacle to watch. Yes we do have a space constraint but nothing is impossible. The AMA SBK teams share pits in the Laguna Seca event ! Thanks to Rajni for not shying away like the ex stars of Indian Motorcycle racing.
