Despite overnight rain affecting the warm-up session on the final day of racing in the SUZUKI ASAIN CHALLENGE at Suzuka International Circuit in Japan, the second race on Sunday saw some of the most exciting racing in Suzuki’s single-platform series history.

Now using the all new Suzuki Satria F150, pole sitter April King Mascardo #43 from the Philippines set the pace at the beginning with his three Indonesian rivals, Jefri Tosema #20, Muhammad Sapril #87, and Rizal Feriyadi #30 making-up the leading group. The four pulled away from the rest of the field at one point, but by the middle of the race, Race 1 winner and Mascardo’s team-mate Eane Jaye Solacito Sobretodo #22 caught up, making it a five-way battle.

The second group – Jagan Kumar (India) #5, Maxi Hattori (Japan) #11, Rozaliman Zakaria (Malaysia) #12, Arsyad Rusydi (Singapore) #14 and Shinnosuke Sato (Japan) #27 – also caught up with the leading group with three laps to go, making it a 9-way battle for the win. But Mascardo crashed into the safety barrier at the final chicane, making it an eight-way race to the flag.

It was a close battle with all eight riders jumping into the final chicane neck-and-neck. Sapril just pulled-out ahead to win, which was his third of the season, with Feriyadi second and local rider Sato third for his first podium of the season.
The fourth round of the Suzuki Asian Challenge, run in conjunction with the 2016 FIM Asia Road Racing Championship, is scheduled to take place at Sentul International Circuit in Bogor, Indonesia on August 5-7th.
