After 4th position in Aragon, Wahyu Nugroho ready to take part in R3 bLU cRU European Cup Round 2 in Assen Netherlands


The second series of the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup 2022 race will be held at the Assen Circuit Netherlands, this weekend (22-23 April 2022). One of Indonesia's best riders, Wahyu Nugroho is ready to continue his struggle in this world-level competition.

The rider from Boyolali, Central Java is so optimistic that he can achieve the best results after successfully finishing 4th in the second race of the inaugural series in Aragon, Spain (8-9 April 2022). He was slightly time gap compared to the top 1-3 positions, only 0.064 seconds.

This is a positive trend that Wahyu Nugroho will try to maintain. Currently, the Yamaha Indonesia-coached rider is ranked 5th in the standing points of the R3 bLU cRU European Cup 2022 with a total of 21 points. This should be appreciated considering that Wahyu Nugroho is a rookie or newcomer to the R3 bLU cRU European Cup 2022.

“I am very happy and will try to get better results in Round 2. Here I enjoy it and have done several exercises. I have also started to adapt to the YFZ-R3 bike, hopefully I can do better. I already know the layout and characters of the Assen Circuit from video races and video games. And I will try to race in this series,” said Wahyu Nugroho.

Of course, it is a challenge for Wahyu Nugroho to be able to quickly adapt to the Assen track Netherlands, which he has never raced here before. The Assen Circuit has a length of 4.5 Km and a menu of 18 corners.

The schedule for the second series of R3 bLU cRU European Cup 2022 Assen – Netherlands is as follows:

Friday, 22 April 2022:

Free Practice (14:00 – 14:30 WIB)

Superpole (18:30 – 19.00 WIB)

Saturday, 23 April 2022:

Race 2 (21:15 WIB)

We ask for supports and prayers from the Indonesian people so that Wahyu Nugroho can fight all out in R3 bLU cRU European Cup 2022 Assen, to reach the best podium. So, the name of Indonesia can get ahead in the international racing arena
