Indonesian Muhd Febriansyah has set the benchmark time in the Asia Dream Cup category as the first day of practice got underway at Round 4 which is held in the Sentul Circuit. Febriansyah posted a time of 1’52.035s as the quickest ADC rider.
Laptimes were comparatively slower than previous years as the class of 2016 opted to spend more time on getting familiar with the tricky track conditions than clocking fast times.
Championship leader Hiroki Nakamura was second fastest with 1’52.299s. Meanwhile, Indonesian rookie Yaasiin Gabriel Somma rode into prominence for the first time this season as he used his knowledge of the Sentul track to clinch the third fastest time of the day, 1’52.681s.
Malaysia’s Hafiz Nor Azman and China’s Zhou Sheng Jun Jie rounded up the top five spots.
