By rider decision, the second race of the weekend will take place
After an incident at Turn 10 on Lap 1 of the Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup race on Saturday, Indonesian rider Afridza Munandar sadly passed away. Race 1 was Red Flagged immediately and subsequently cancelled.
Following the incident, Talent Promotion Director Alberto Puig gathered the IATC riders to ask how they would like to proceed: cancel further track action this weekend or have Race 2 take place.
Every rider voted to race on Sunday. Race 2 will therefore go ahead, and any rider who subsequently chooses not to race has our full support and understanding.
The race will be in memory of Afridza Munandar.
In addition, there will be a minute of silence to remember Munandar on Sunday. This will take place at 11:20 local time (GMT +8) on the grid.
