Thirteenth round of the season this weekend at the Buddh International Circuit, hosting a MotoGP World Championship race for the first time: a new country, a new circuit, and a new challenge for all the riders and teams.
The Indian weekend marks the start of an intense Asian tour with eight races in ten weeks.
The first day both Furusato and Aji start to become familiar with the layout and with the track and weather conditions.
The second day they improve, especially Taiyo who gets the Q2 and the eight position on the grid.
In the race, Furusato starts well, fighting with the front group riders. Unfortunately the Japanese rider crashes on the ninth lap without completing the race. Despite the final result, he accumulates a lot of experience that will be useful in the future.
Aji finishes in 18th place, affected by the crash of another rider, which makes him lose contact with the group and any chance of a good result.
Next stop: Japan!
MOTO3: MARIO SURYO AJI #64
Grid P24– Race P18
Another tough race. The long gear ratio didn’t work at the end, and I’ve been struggling with the acceleration. The feeling on the bike wasn’t bad. I pushed even with the heat, but in the beginning, a rider crashed in front of me, and avoiding impacting him, I lost the group. We will see next week in Motegi.
MOTO3: TAIYO FURUSATO #72
Grid P8– Race DNF
Overall, the weekend has been positive, even though I crashed three times, an issue I need to improve. In the race, I made one mistake in the beginning, losing some positions. I struggled in the group, and I crashed trying to catch the riders fighting for P6. This weekend, I’ve been competitive; I will try to maintain this feeling in my home race in Motegi.

We had quite a challenging and exciting race. In the beginning, Furusato was fighting for the fifth position with Toba. He made a small mistake, losing positions and finally crashing. But today, he was fighting with the podium riders. That mean the podium options were realistic. It’s a painful crash, but he’s ok. Let’s see next weekend. On Mario’s side, he had a complicated race, fighting with many riders, but he never gave up. He tried, and we appreciate his and all the staff’s efforts.
