Yamaha Motor Philippines is currently competing in the Asia Road Race Championship (ARRC), a continental championship competition of the FIM (Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme). The Australian leg recently wrapped up with 16-year-old wonder boy McKinley Kyle Paz holding his own against the best riders in Asia.



His first time on the Bend Motorsports Park during practice session allowed Kyle to show his skills by recording the fastest time on the track (2:18.93). In the qualifiers, he placed 4th on the grid, and finished 6th overall for his first race. The 2nd race was where he pulled out all the stops to with an outstanding 2nd place finish for the Yamaha Maju Motor Asia Team. He rode the Sniper 150 which is a blur on any road with its speed and precision. Its reputation of being the best in its class in starting and passing acceleration was clearly seen in this competition. Kyle’s performance was powered by UMA Racing parts and Racing Boy.



Now considered as a worthy adversary by his fellow competitors, the full potential of this teenage sensation will continue to be realized as the competition goes on. He will suit up for the next round of the ARRC in Japan on June 1-3 at the Suzuka Racing Circuit. They will compete using the YZF-R25, part of the performance packed lineup of the R-Series masterfully crafted for racing. For that battle he will be joined by veteran stalwart, “The Chairman” Masato Fernando.
