If he wasn’t already a force to be reckoned with, expect Thai ace Apiwat Wongthananon to be even more formidable in the Indian round of the 2016 FIM Asia Road Racing Championship. Apiwat’s noteworthy performance in the Asia Production 250cc class this season has prompted Yamaha to send him for the second edition of the Yamaha-VR46 Master Camp.
22 year old Apiwat missed out on the first training camp due to the imposed age limit for the participants of the camp. However, the Yamaha motorsports management team had obviously taken note of Apiwat’s results this season. To his delight, Apiwat joined Peerapong Loiboonpeng, Galang Hendra Pratama, Imanuel Putra Pratna, Soichiro Minamimoto and Kasma Daniel Kasmayuddin for the second Yamaha-VR46 Master Camp held in Tavullia, Italy from September 15 to 19, 2016.
“For me, it was the first time to come here and experience the Yamaha VR46 Master Camp. I felt I was increasing my level and doing better day by day. I will go back to Thailand to develop myself there and benefit from everything I learned. I want to thank Yamaha and VR46 for this incredible opportunity of coming here. Today I felt that I was able to take the next step and I want to thank everyone who helped me do so.
