Galang Happy with Mandalika Circuit Layout Increases the Time of 1.85 Seconds


The all-out struggle continues to be shown by the proud Indonesian rider Galang Hendra Pratama to adapt quickly to new tracks and find the best set-up on his Yamaha YZF-R6 bike.

This took place in the first and second free practice sessions (FP1 and FP2) in the WorldSSP world racing series and the first race at Pertamina Mandalika International Street Circuit - Indonesia, Friday (19 November 2021).

Galang Hendra Pratama who defends the Ten Kate Racing Yamaha team proved to be able to increase his time better by 1.85 seconds. That's the best-time comparison between FP1 and FP2.

During the FP1 Session, he recorded a time of 1 minute 41.810 seconds. He was in 18th position. The second sector of the Mandlika track became more value for him in the FP1 session. In the FP2 session, the Yamaha Racing Indonesia’s fostered rider recorded a time of 1 minute 39.954 seconds and he was in 17th position.

Of course, there will be a joint evaluation regarding the bike set-up in FP1 and FP2. The best set-up is expected to undergo the Superpole qualification stage on Saturday (20 November 2021).

He is currently in the 21st position in the WorldSSP standing points with a total of 24 points. Of course, the opportunity to improve his position is still open because there are still 50 points left to fight for.

“I am very happy at My Home Race. The first impressing of this track is very nice. The condition is slippery, because there is still a little sand on the track. In FP1 and FP2 we learned a lot and collected a lot of data. So we know that I can do better in the Superpole tomorrow. I’m confident that we can go for a top-15 or top-12 in the Superpole. I’m really looking for the races in front of my home crowd!” Said Galang Hendra Pratama.

We always ask for the support of the Indonesian people so that Galang Hendra Pratama can achieve the best results for “Indonesia Semakin Di Depan".
