Pata Yamaha Prepares to Travel to Thailand

160308_11

The Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team heads east again this week for the second round of the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship at Buriram’s Chang International Circuit in Thailand. Fresh from his season opening top-five race finish, Sylvain Guintoli is eager to replicate his Phillip Island form and develop the progress made so-far with his YZF-R1. Looking to bounce back from a challenging weekend in Australia, Alex Lowes is feeling confident about his return to the Thai track. The scene of a podium celebration for the 25-year-old at last year’s inaugural visit, Lowes is excited about going to the 4,554m circuit and is determined to build on the potential shown during his opening weekend.

A purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility situated 400kms to the northeast of Thailand’s capital Bangkok, the Herman Tilke designed Chang International Circuit opened in late 2014. Reaching the highest FIM criteria, the track’s layout combines long straights with 7 right and 5 left-hand corners with its nine-turn technical complex being viewed easily from the main 50,000 seater grandstand. Buriram (‘the pleasant city’) is a largely agricultural region with a population of approximately 30,000. The province also retains numerous ancient sanctuaries and ruins as an important reminder of its long and varied history.

Track action commences for Guintoli and Lowes at 10:15hrs local time in the first of the weekend’s two hour-long free practice sessions on Friday 11th March before the Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team’s wheels turn in anger for race one at 16:00hrs local time on Saturday 12th March.
