Keminth Kubo has been part of the VR46 Master Camp for four seasons, including 2022. The Thai rider became associated with the VR46 brand after being picked for the annual VR46 Master Camp event in 2018, where riders across the globe are selected to train with various VR46 Riders Academy members.
He was crowned the 2016 Motegi Road Racing Championship ST600 Champion and then went on to show his undoubted talent in the Asia Road Racing SS600 Championship in 2017 and 2018, which saw him selected for the 2018 VR46 Master Camp. After impressing the academy members, Kubo joined the newly formed VR46 Master Camp Moto2 Team within the CEV Moto2 series and packed his bags to embark on a European adventure, racing tracks he’d only ever seen on TV.
Adapting quickly to the stiffer Moto2 Kalex chassis, he came home in a respectable ninth overall as a rookie, taking multiple top-10 finishes, with a best result of sixth. He remained in the class for 2020 and would again finish the season in ninth after missing the opening four races of the year, taking consistent top-five finishes and matching his best result of fourth place.
Kubo continued his strong form in 2021, finishing the season in 11th place overall and again equalling his best result of fourth for the VR46 team. In 2021 he debuted as a wild card in the Moto2 World Championship at Catalunya, finishing the race in 26th place.
For 2022 Kubo continues his relationship with the VR46 Master Camp and moves up to the world stage by joining the newly formed Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team in the Moto2 World Championship.
