Suzuka, Japan- All three Team Suzuki Pilipinas riders  again finished in the top 10 in the second Practice Session od the Suzuki Asian Challenge here at Suzuka Vircuit in Japan.

SAC rookie Eane Jay Sobretodo of Luzon was 4th fastest with a time of 2:57.046s while April King Mascardo of Mindanao was 9th at 2:58.316s and Mario Borbon of Visayas was 10th fastest with a time of 2:58.621s.

The morning’s top Filipino Mascardo failed to improve his time due to a loose air filter. He lost engine rpm and had to come into the pits. By the time he came out again he lost the group and lost drafting partners and circulated solo. This prevented him from posting a faster time.

Suzuka is a fast circuit with majority of the lap requiring the rider at 100% wide open throttle. The riders on Suzuki Raider 150s often reach top speeds in excess of 137kph.

Tomorrow’s first Qualifying is set in the mornibg before Race 1 is held later in the afternoon.
