06-10-2021

In Race 1 of the WorldSSP Portimao competition, Portugal, Saturday (2 October 2021), Galang Hendra Pratama managed to finish 22nd. The Ten Kate Racing Yamaha team rider started the race from the 25th starting grid with a best time of 1 minute 46.495 seconds.

The Yamaha Racing Indonesia’s fostered rider has been in the 23rd position since the 5th lap by taking advantage of every available opportunity to fight All-Out on this challenging track. He was in the 23rd position until the 14th lap. So throughout the 10 laps he struggled to maintain his position with Optimism.

Then on 15th lap he managed to increase to the 22nd position. Not only that, he continued to fight all-out to catch up to the opponent in front of him. However, until the 17th lap, he who was riding the Yamaha YZF-R6 bike had to settle for being in 22nd position until the finish flag was raised.

He is optimistic to do better in race 2 of WorldSSP Portimao. He tries to get additional points so that he can improve his position in standing points.

"It's a tough race. I had a good start, but I was stuck in the middle of the group at the first corner. I kept trying to get up after that moment, but had a hard time with the strong winds. I tried my best, but it wasn't my best race. I will do everything I can for a better race in Race 2,” said Galang Hendra Pratama.  

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