Mandalika holds fond memories for Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK, as the site of the team’s complete lock-out of the four championship accolades in 2021: Razgatlıoğlu’s first Riders’ Championship title, Yamaha’s Manufacturers’ Crown, the Teams’ Championship and “Rookie of the Year” for Locatelli.
This year, Razgatlıoğlu has only one thing in his mind – winning more races – while teammate Locatelli hopes to finish the season strongly and potentially challenge for a podium in the final two events. With the finale at Phillip Island in Australia back-to-back next weekend, there’s six races in quick succession left to enjoy.
A new event schedule awaits Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK in Indonesia, with Free Practice 1 on Friday morning at 10:30 local time (UTC+8) and Free Practice 2 from the earlier time of 13:00. Tropical monsoon rains are likely to make an appearance over the weekend – but when, and how much, rain falls will be difficult to predict.
