Galang Hendra Pratama

I am very happy to finally return to the Yamaha Racing Indonesia team that made my career great in the international arena. Obviously I’m very excited about the experience in the European championships and the WSS600, which has become a point of reference for me to be able to get results in Asia. My preparation is to do more motorcycle training in Sentul with my younger brother Aldi. The ARRC circuit in 2022 is not a new circuit for me, I already know the character of the circuit. However, with the character of the Yamaha YZF-R6 bike, I have to adapt more quickly to the Asian specifications to get the best settings. This requires a good communication strategy with the team because this Supersport bike needs very detailed information to get the perfect setting. I’ll do my best “For the red and white to go on.”

Alhamdulillah and thanks to Yamaha for giving me the confidence to join again to defend the Yamaha Racing Indonesia team to race in the ARRC Supersports 600cc class. This year I did several exercises, mainly physical and motorcycle training using the YZF-R6 motorcycle at the Sentul Circuit. Hopefully the Official Test and Series 1 will run smoothly. In 2020 the competition only ran one series and this was not satisfactory. Therefore in 2022 I will do my best to provide the best to Indonesia in the class I am attending.

This year, for the first time, I will ride the YZF-R25 bike at the ARRC, so I will learn a lot from my older brother, Galang Hendra, who has experience to get a riding style, especially using the top R-series bikes.
