DIFFICULT TRACK, PUNISHING HEAT, AND

UNFORGIVING OPPOSITION SHARPENS

KYLE PAZ AND MASATO FERNANDO

 

UMA Racing Yamaha Philippines team had an incredible start to the ARRC season by topping both races in the Malaysian leg. After being named Champions, Kyle and Masato were marked men since they set foot in the country of Thailand.

 

Round 2 was set in Chang International Circuit, a formidable course that challenges professional riders of any skill level. They would battle not just this track but also the heat which tested their overall endurance. Not to mention an entire grid raging to deny them of another victory. Against the odds these two riders focused both their minds and bodies for the uphill task that was to come.

 

The older veteran of the two, Masato Fernando, had it rough in qualifying and started the race at the 20th spot. That wouldn’t be enough to slow down “The Chairman” as he pushed himself all the way to the 4th spot. But when he was preparing to crack into that top three spot an unfortunate clip with a fellow rider knock him out of the lead the lead pack and bowed out back at 20th

 

ARRC race leader, Kyle Paz, started behind an all Malaysian troupe that made his run grueling from start to finish. After falling as far behind into double digit place, he showed everyone why he ruled the Malaysian leg and finished race 1 with a respectable 6th place finish.

 

Although not the finish they were hoping for, UMA Racing Yamaha Philippines Team remains undaunted and will make the necessary adjustments to take Race 2. Will the Philippine flag be raised anew? We’ll find out soon enough.
