Koyama and Team JiR ready for Malaysian GP

Koyama and Team JiR ready for Malaysian GP

Tomoyoshi Koyama is ready for tomorrow’s Malaysian Grand Prix Moto2 race.

The 31-year-old – who is a replacement for Team JiR’s regular rider, Tetsuta Nagashima – made a number of changes to his NH6 Moto2 machine today in a bid to be ready for tomorrow’s race around the 3.4mile circuit. Further changes tomorrow morning should give the Japanese rider a still better feeling ahead of the 19-lap race.

Championship leader Esteve Rabat is on pole position once more, chased by his team-mate Mika Kallio and Sandro Cortese.

“Today we changed the suspension setting and a little of the overall geometry. So, in free practice three it was difficult to get a good feeling but then we changed the front for qualifying and it gave me a little more confidence. Then we wanted to get more speed from the bike as for some reason we felt a little bit down on power when you shift gears so we changed some of the mapping of the engine and it improved things a little. We have a few more settings to change tomorrow so we hope to have a good race.”
