The formation for the YRI team for the 2023 racing season is indeed different, there have been changes according to the planned strategy and the potential to achieve the best results is increasing. The Supersports 600cc (SS600) class, which relies on the Yamaha YZF-R6 motorbike race, is strengthened by Galang Hendra Pratama, who has been competing in the SS600 for the second year. His teammate who just joined YRI is AM Fadly, for 2022 season he was the overall champion in the AP250 class. The combination of the two has further strengthened the strength of YRI's troops at the SS600 level.

SS600 Class

Various preparations have been made, starting from physical preparation and endurance, as well as training with motorbikes or participating in national racing events, such as the Mandalika Racing Series (MRS) which was held on March 5, 2023.

AP250 Class

In the AP250 class, there is a talented rider Wahyu Nugroho who last season concentrated on the R3 bLU cRU European Cup race and as a rookie or newcomer could be ranked 6th in the final standings. The experience of this rider from Boyolali on the European Continent will be an important asset for him to achieve the best achievements.

His teammate is M Faerozi who previously raced the SS600 (ARRC 2022). Competition in last year SS600 built greater mental fortitude for the Semakin Di Depan Fighters.
