After flying off to secure the winning spot on Saturday’s first race to claim the overall SuperSports 600cc title, once again Yuki Takahashi has dominate the second and final race in the Asia Road Racing Championship as the Musashi Boon Siew Honda racing team. The rider notched up another race victory for his seventh consecutive race win of the season. The result has raised his total wins to eight from the 12 of the races contested in this season.

The newly crowned SuperSports 600cc champion, Yuki Takahashi notes, “I am so happy with this result today. I would like to thank my team and sponsors. This is amazing, especially after collected our fourth team title and now to win the riders’ championship is a fantastic result! I did my best, but it would not have been possible to get the title today without the team. The level of competition is very high in this category so I know I would have to strive very hard today to ensure a win.”

The joyful dad-to-be, starts his preparation for the 2016 campaign almost immediately after discussed his victory noting, “Compared to the first race yesterday, today’s race was really good although it is very difficult. In the first part of the race, I had a good fight with the Yamaha’s and Kawasaki as they were both very strong. After lap five I was able to find the rhythm and managed to get away from the group. I am really happy with this result today and winning the overall champion title, for myself and for the Musashi Boon Siew Honda team. My thanks to the crew for an amazing season! Most importantly though, I want to dedicate this result to my teammate and friend Zamri Baba.”

In the race for the runners-up position in the overall riders’ championship, the fight had been between Tomoyoshi and Yudhistira as the two primary contenders. For the Indonesian, a stellar ride did not yield the expected results when a costly mistake on the difficult final corner on the final lap saw him lose the front of his Kawasaki on the exit of the final corner as he crashed. That allowed Tomoyoshi to finish ahead of the Indonesia, giving the silver medal position to the Japanese, which was further solidified with a solid 20 points haul instead of the original 13 points following the post-race amended results.

Despite losing the fight for the runners-up position to the Japanese, Kawasaki’s Yudhistira still ends an impressive SuperSports 600cc campaign in the bronze medal position having amassed a total of 139 points.
