The UMA Racing MMR Yamaha Philippines continues to tough it out against the best of Asia after their recent setback in Indonesia.
It’s been a challenging season so far for April King Mascardo and Gian Carlo Mauricio who have yet to find their stride in the 2023 Asia Road Racing Championship. A string of losses makes their shot at a podium finish a tall mountain to climb. April, who finished third overall last year, finished at 11th in race 1. But disaster struck on race 2 when his front tire slipped on the last turn as he was holding on to 3rd place. Turning his excellent performance to a DNF. Gian who qualified at 11th to start was held to 24th in race 1 and 17th in race 2.
With 2 rounds remaining, April sits at 13th overall and Gian is on the outside looking in at 23rd. Their next race will be on November 4-5 in China, and they will need to be virtually perfect to contend for a respectable finish this season. Difficult as it may seem but greatness never comes easy and on the racetrack anything is possible.
