Yamaha Indonesia Sends Hopeful New Face to Challenge World Supersport 300 with YZF-R3
Galang Hendra, a highly anticipated rider in Indonesia, participated in an international event, World Supersport 300 in 2017 with YZF-R3. The event was held at Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, Portimão Portugal, on 17th September.
With wild card offered by Yamaha, the 18-years-old rider got an opportunity to race with Motoxracing Team and Ukrainian teammate rider, Mykyta Kalinin. His participation became his very first step to his global career as one of his goals.
This great opportunity was accomplished thanks to YMC (Yamaha Motor Company), YME (Yamaha Motor Europe) and YMR (Yamaha Motor Racing) and also his persistence.
Started from Yamaha Cup Race, he competed at various national championships, such as Motorprix and IRS, then gradually broadened his filed to Asia Road Racing Championship. Getting forged at Master Camp VR46 Riders Academy program in Italy and an education under Valentino Rossi provided valuable experience for his riding career.
