The Yamaha BAF Yamalube Akai Jaya MBKW2, Yamaha Yamalube AMS SCJRT TDR Cargloss RRS, Yamaha LFN HP969 RCB NHK Proliner HDS Racing and STN Rajendra Pejantan Tangguh GDT Racing Team took part in this event with a total of 18 riders participating.
Yamaha Racing Indonesia coached riders, such as Galang Hendra Pratama, Rey Ratukore, Felix PM, Wahyu Nugroho, Reynaldi Pradana, etc. fought all-out with the Motorcycle Yamaha YZF-R25 race to achieve the best result.
The first appearance of a potential young rider, Felix PM who carries the Yamaha Yamalube AMS SCJRT TDR Cargloss RRS team, was in the front row during the 2nd race. This condition can build a better mentality to compete. The MRS 2023 event is the first experience for Felix PM, who is still 15 years old.

In fact, in the second race on Sunday (March 5, 2023), Galang Hendra Pratama struggled even harder until he went wide. And on the last lap in the race for 3rd position, he was able to maximize the performance of his YZF-R25 in the entry and exit moments of the final corner. Only 0.049 seconds different from the 4th finisher.
Referring to the results of the initial round of the 2023 MRS, Galang Hendra Pratama is in 3rd place in the standings (32 points). Opportunities are still very open for the next series. The 2nd round of MRS 2023 will be held in July.
