Maiki Abe’s Comment

SUGO was a course that I had not rode so much, but there were many differences in height among the courses I have rode so far and I could enjoy to ride.But, it was difficult to get the line especially at the S-curve, and I was not able to run the line firmly.

As a result, I was ranked 3rd place in J250 Class but I was not enough for one second compared the top time, so next time I wanted to get a great run in a firm line.


Abe Director’s Comment

Only Maiki Abe participated on JP250 Class.

It was Maiki’s first race in SUGO and he had a hard time trying to increase the riding time with less practice.

The racing machine has a new engine riding in Tsukuba Circuit and we brought it in SUGO, and the Nagayasu Mechanic’s encouraged the setting and finished to a considerable level.During the training, he had struggled to reach 1 minute and 51 seconds, and the only way that he will be accustom to the course and do the best.

During Qualifying Round, he still in the adjustment period on his racing machine, accustomed little by little and reached the 9th place out of 22 participants with a time of 1 minute 49:485 seconds.He got the 7th place after started, and he managed to chase with a self-best of 1 minute 48 seconds 692 on the 7th lap, but the top 4 in the rank are international license holders and 2 in the lank are Japanese licenses holders.they have many experiences. he finished 7th place.

The top four were international license holders, so Maiki got the 3rd place in class and the first podium.

Next, Motegi Championship on May 18, and the following week will be the same as All Japan co-hosted MFJCUP at SUGO, and will continue on June 1with Tsukuba Championships.
I hope that we can gain a lot of experience and make a big leap from next year onward.

Thank you for your support.
