Predictably, Decha Kraisart from the Yamaha Thailand Racing Team was also a consistent performer at the top of the grid. Decha ended the test session second fastest with 1’38.839s.

 

Azlan’s team mate Ahmad Yudhistira was third fastest with 1’39.037s while Malaysian rider Zaqhwan Zaidi posted fourth fastest. Yuki Ito, riding the new Yamaha R6, rounded up the top five with 1’39.149s.

 

Ratthapong Wilairot improved on his personal time at the Chang International Circuit with 1’39.303s. He ranked sixth fastest after the pre-season tests followed by Keminth Kubo, Taiga Hada, the returning Tomoyoshi Koyama, and rookie rider Azroy Hakeem Anuar in the top 10.
