SS600 Race Result: 7th / 6th Championship position: 1st“I honestly did not know that I had won the title in the race. There was no information on my pit board, and I was unaware that Koyama had retired halfway through the race. I was just focusing on pacing myself and making sure that I will finish as high position as I could. I was surprised to be greeted by the pit-lane marshalls and guided to ride the podium. Then I finally saw my team member were celebrating our fifth Asian win.”Tomoyoshi Koyama: T.Pro Yuzy Honda NTS
SS600 Race Result: 8th / DNF Championship position: 2nd“I tried to get a title in this race. If I had finished the race next to Zaqhwan, I would have been a champion. I drove seriously to win the title, but I could not become it. My team and I did our best, and we are quite satisfied with the result. So I have no regret. I appreciate a great support from my team in this season and thank them so much.”Yuki Takahashi: MuSASHi Boon Siew Honda Racing
SS600 Race Result: 20th / 8th Championship position: 4th“I was anxious to join this championship race, but I decided to do my best even if I fall during the race. In the race 1, I had fallen, but I didn't injure so I could take part in race two as well. I have no regret because I had never given up and keep on chasing. I am glad that my team wins a championship title. I want to celebrate Zaqhwan, who became a champion in this year.”Hiroki Nakamura:
Asia Dream Cup Race Result: 2nd / 1st Championship position: 1st“At race1, I couldn't do anything because I was prevented by other riders and I ended up in second place. At race 2, I could apply for the Leave by braking, and I won a Victory. And my 2-years career in ADC had finished. Thank you so much.”Tokio Shibuta:
Asia Dream Cup Race Result: DNF / 7th Championship position: 12th“I didn't take part in the first half of the race, so this was the first time for me to run in this circuit. Because of that, my start was poor. It leads to a good race at first day of driving. At race 1, I fell, but it leads not to work the throttle and fell again. At race 2, I could be the top, but I could not leave the good result, but It was a great experience for me. I keep in mind that this experience will be useful in the next race.”
