Insideracing.com.ph – CANARE WINS WET MotoIR RACE 6 BUT LOPEZ STILL LEADS CHAMPIONSHIP
Date posted on August 9, 2014
Defending double MotoIR champion Rizaldy Canare (27) of Team NHK-Racewell overcame wet track conditions and a charging Racewell team mate Vrei-ar Suba to win his second race of the season at Clark International Speedway last August 3.
Suba narrowly missed getting his first MotoIR win of his career when he made a last ditch effort to overtake Canare on the line. The margin of victory was a scant 0.109 s. Third was ZEBRA-MLW’s Dustin Esguerra. Team Sum Racing NHK-Racewell rider Ralph Kenneth Torres (117) finished fourth. Doblada(82) of MTRT-Honda faded from the front and eventually crossed the line ahead of Torres but was later excluded due to technical infringement.
NHK-Racewell’s Herbert Lopez (16) finished in 8th position in difficult track conditions but still earned enough points to maintain his lead in the championship.
Meanwhile, Gio Adriano (126) of KYT took the MotoIR2 class win ahead of MotoIR Youth Cup winner Robert Mathhew Ramos of MTRT-Honda and Juver Mirasol of JM Mirasol Racing. The MotoIR2 grid was boosted in this race by two new entries namely Arthuro Lavarias and Homer Sabang III of CBR Pampanga Gents.
The 9-race 2014 Shell Advance MotoIR Championship Presented by Honda is also supported by Racing Boy, FDR, Bridgestone and Vee Rubber. Now on its third season, the championship is organized by InsideRACING and sanctioned by the Underbone and Scooter Racing Association (USRA). Next race will be on August 17 at the Carmona Race Track in Cavite.
