With the knee injury that he
suffered recently during training acting up, India’s Sarath Kumar was forced to
sit out the second of the Asian Road Racing Championship this weekend after
participating in the three free Practice sessions of the SuperSports 600cc
class on Friday May 6, 2016 in Buriram, Thailand,
“It was most unfortunate that
my debut in the 600cc class was a non-starter. I was in severe pain after
participating in the three Free Practice sessions on Friday following which we
decided to skip the rest of the weekend rather than risk aggravating the
“Hopefully, I will be fit and
ready for the third round at Suzuka in Japan next month (June 4-5),” said the
23-year old Sarath Kumar who is supported by WOW Digit-Hong Kong, Honda
Motorcycles and Scooters, India, Honda Motors, Japan and Ten10 Racing.
Ramji Govindarajan, Managing
Director, Ten10 Racing, said: “As we all know, Sarath is still recovering from
his knee injury and FP3 (Free Practice-3) took a toll on his knee and he was in
pain. So the team decided to run him only for five laps.
“The grid a tough one, but we
as a team and manager are not putting any pressure on him to perform. We want
him to recover and learn the nuances of riding a 600cc motorcycle step by step.
“Sarath has been working hard
on it despite being in pain and is not able to ride through left corner or
right to left quick transition turns. We are hoping that he would have fully
recovered from the injury for the next round in Japan,” he said.
