MOTOGP the longest running motorsport world championship is back to heat up Sepang on the 23rd of October and for our dear neighbours in Thailand, all eyes will be on teen sensation, RatthaparkWilairot who will be hoping to repeat his best ever performance, finishing in 6th place two years ago.
The 23 year old rider from Chonburi, who finished 16th last year in Sepang, has been slow off the starting blocks this season with only 4 points from 8 starts this season, hoping to rediscover his form in the second half in hopes of at least equaling his 30 point haul in 2010.
Besides fan favourite, Wilairot, Thai fans have a lot going for them in Sepang with the penultimate round being billed as the title decider for the premier before the curtain is brought down on another exciting MotoGP season in Valencia early November.
The battle lines are drawn between championship leader, Casey Stoner, defending champion, Jorge Lorenzo for the overall title in the premier class, with both riders separated by mere points the standings. But never write off, 7 time overall champion, Valentino Rossi who knows the Sepang track like the back of his hand, stealing the limelight by repeating his winning performance last year.
This 32 year old, shrugging off the veteran tag, has something to prove as he dons the Ducati colours, bringing an end to his long standing association with Yamaha as he aims to equal GiacomoAgostini’s record of eight premier class titles. And best of all for the Thai fans, it doesn’t cost and arm and a leg to catch Wilairot and all your favourite riders separated just south of the border in Malaysia, with tickets acknowledged to be the cheapest among all the races.
