The MotoGP circus faces, this weekend, the second of the three races in a row, fixed on the calendar in the month of June, and it does it at Sachsenring for the seventh round of the season.
The Honda Asia team lines up a third rider in Moto3 as wild card, the Thai Tatchakorn Buasri as part of the program of Thai Honda, supporting rising stars to contest in the World Championship. Buasri is part of the same promotional structure as Somkiat Chantra, who is riding in Moto2 and this is the first time that two Thai riders compete in two races in the same program.
Furusato arrives at Sachsenring aiming at redeeming himself after two crashes, in the last 2 races, both few corners from the finishing line when fighting for points. And this time he did it, by cutting the chequered flag in 10th position. A good weekend for Taiyo who shines in most of the sessions, and a confidence injection for the next Dutch GP.
A good race weekend also for Mario who struggles in dry sessions but finds the right feeling on the wet. His race was good, getting close to the point zone in some moments of the race.
Tatchakorn Buasri gains experience in his debut in the world championship and he will have other opportunities to emerge as Thai Honda plans to send him to race a total of 4 wild cards throughout the 2023 season.
Next stop Assen, the last race before the summer break.
MOTO3: MARIO SURYO AJI #64
Grid P19– Race P19
Overall, I’m happy about the race and the weekend. My feeling about the bike increased a lot from FP1. I could make constant lap time, even with the fastest pace. It’s a shame because we fought too much in the group. We caught the front group in the middle of the race but lost them again because we were fighting behind. My team and I are happy about my performance during the race, much faster than last year. I know the position isn’t in the points, but we keep this motivation for Assen.
MOTO3: TAIYO FURUSATO #72
Grid P11– Race P10
First, I’m happy to finish the race after two races in a row crashing. We’ve been fighting to score points with many top riders. Even my lap time was the best of the weekend, with a great pace all the laps. I feel that I’m improving a lot, and I would like to continue in this way.
MOTO3: TATCHAKORN BUASRI #33
Grid P25– Race P25
Today is a fantastic day for me, my debut in the World Championship. My goal was to finish the race, avoiding crashing to get as much experience as possible. I learned a lot about setting about, riding style, and how to manage the tires. I enjoyed it, even if the result wasn’t so good, but I improved significantly.
HIROSHI AOYAMA – Team Manager
It has been a very long race. Our three riders fought all the laps, finishing it. Taiyo finished in a brilliant 10th, scoring his first points of the season. Mario fought as well to score points, but he finally finished 19th. About his first experience of Tatchakorn in GP’s, he has managed to finish 25th. I would say that we had a good race, a good weekend. We are happy about our progress, but we would like to be even better next week.
