Buasri finishes 5th in Race 2 of the JuniorGP in Jerez
The Thai rider suffers contact with another rider in the morning contest. Teammate Arbi Aditama takes a 16th and a DNF.
The Circuito de Jerez - Ángel Nieto hosted the fourth round of the FIM JuniorGP season, and Asia Talent Team riders Tatchakorn Buasri and Fadillah Arbi Aditama finished 13th and 16th in Race 1, and 5th and DNF in Race 2, respectively.
In the morning race, held with a very cloudy sky and optimal conditions on track, Tatchakorn Buasri dropped down the order after contact with another rider while fighting to chase down the front group. He finally finished 13th. Arbi Aditama, who had problems at the start, managed to climb five places, but the dense group he was in kept him out of the battle for points, despite his finishing 16th.
In Race 2, Buasri managed to stay in contention for the podium throughout, but finally settled for a positive 5th place. Arbi, despite making a good start, suffered a crash on the second lap, ending his race prematurely.
After these two races, Buasri is seventh in the JuniorGP standings, with 55 points. Arbi Aditama is 25th, with 1 point.
The next FIM JuniorGP round -a single race- will be held in two weeks' time, on July 17th, at the Autodromo do Algarve in Portugal.
