Yamaha PH racing teams hit snag

arcc round 4

Filipino riders McKinley Kyle Paz of Yamaha Philippines Stylobike Racing Team, who competes at the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) JuniorGP (JRGP), and April King Mascardo and Gian Carlo Mauricio of UMA Racing MMR Yamaha Philippines Team, both at the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) Asia Road Racing Championship (ARCC), encountered setbacks during their respective events.


  • What place did Mauricio finish in race two of the Round 4 of the FIM ARCC?

    Mauricio originally placed third but dropped to 14th place due to penalties.
  • What place did Paz finish at the latest round of the FIM JRGP?

    Despite being relegated to 36th place, Paz finished 14th.
  • In the first race, the Filipino riders from the UMA Racing MMR Yamaha Philippines Team were in top form and were even leading for several laps at some point, but finished sixth and seventh. Mascardo dropped out of race two, leaving Mauricio to compete against the best of Asia. Mauricio finished race two in third place, but due to penalties, dropped into 14th place.

    Paz — nicknamed “The Wonderboy” — didn’t have luck on his side either after being relegated to 36th place on the grid due to a long lap penalty. He salvaged this by fighting his way to 14th place, but race two dealt a devastating blow as Paz suffered a DNF (did not finish).

    Nevertheless, the boys are up for a grand finale performance of their racing seasons. Paz’s FIM JRGP season will come to a close on October 31 in Valencia, Spain. Meanwhile, Mascardo and Mauricio will conclude their ARRC campaign for the season in Thailand on November 19-20.
