Round 5 of All Japan Motocross Championship is taking place at the Fujisawa Sports Land in Iwate Prefecture.
Kainosuke Oshiro’s 5th round the ruening point of the season had begun.
The IA-2 Class Qualifying Race is divided into 2 groups forming Group A and B. Top 15 riders will move on to the finals for tomorrow with a 10 minute + 1 lap race. It is a critical race since this will decide who gets the best starting position for tomorrow’s race and below top 15 will be eliminated from tomorrow’s race.
The weather condition for the race was a lot better from the last round and the qualifying race began for IA-2 Class. Kainosuke Oshiro started in Group A and had made a small mistake from the start settles in 6th at the end of lap 1. By lap 2 Oshiro was able to gain a positoin back to 5th and makes charge through the field. 9 minutes in the race, Oshiro was able to gain another position and comes back the lap in 4th. Unfortunately the time ran out and finished the race in 4th positoin.
For tomorrow’s race, Oshiro will get the rythm he needs from the early stages of the race and will try to finish in the podium and of course aim for the second victory of the season.
“Today, I was in Group A and finished 4th overall. I had made a small mistake from the start and to the first few corners and was in 6th. My regret was that I was not able to grab my own rythm from the beginning and had to charge through the field. Resulting in 4th overall. For tomorrow’s race I will have to get my own rythm from the very beginning and make my own race. Therefore I will have to be in front from the beginning in order to do my race, my way.
Please look forward for my race tomorrow! Thank you!”
There will be 2 heats held for tomorrow’s race.
Heat 1 will start at 10:15 a.m. and heat 2 will start at 13:55 p.m. in the afternoon.
