Race Moto2 2023 Round 19 Sunday, 19th November 2023 Another Brilliant Comeback with no Prize for Ogura and Chantra Lusail International Circuit Starting from the middle of the grid, both made a remarkable comeback again to finish close to the podium. Hiroshi Aoyama IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia Ogura and Chantra started the race from the middle of the grid, showing a good and constant pace. Lap by lap, they have been gaining places, managing the option to be in the top group. Attending the grid position, it’s clear that they have done a good race. As they started in the middle of the group, they struggled during the first five laps, overtaking rivals but losing a crucial time. We hope that they maintain this momentum until next week in Valencia. Ai Ogura 79 IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia Again, as in the last two races, I started from the middle of the grid, gaining a lot of positions during the races, but it wasn’t enough to be on the podium. I struggled to do a good lap in qualifying, which penalized me significantly for the race. We will try to improve this in Valencia as much as we can. I’m happy about my performance today and about my team. Somkiat Chantra 35 IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia It was a hard race today, but I greatly enjoyed it. I did a good start, trying to go with the top group while managing the tire. I tried to be close to the podium positions to finish P7. I’m happy about this result. Now is the time to go to Valencia to finish the season in style.
