AHMAD YUDHISTIRA: HOPING TO BREAK THE GLASS CEILING

Since 2011, the SuperSports 600cc title had been won by either the Japanese or Malaysian riders. As the 2017 season draws to an end, Manual Tech KYT Kawasaki Racing’s Ahmad Yudhistira is in position to become the first premiere class champion from Indonesia.

24 years of age, Yudhis, had been racing in the SuperSports 600cc category since 2013. His best result in the class was in 2015 when he finished third overall.

Currently standing fifth on the rankings with 110 points, Yudhis still has a mathematical chance of overcoming the 28-point chasm that yawns between him and Zaqhwan Zaidi in first place.
