2008 October: Track Day at Sentul

Sentul Circuit, October 16, 2008.

More than 1,5 month not riding my sport bike, it was so tempting when some friends called me asking if I would like to practice on Thursday morning. Just skip half day from the office and back to work again after lunch. Hm… that was good idea since I only have a meeting late afternoon on Thursday. So, finally I said “Yes, I will come.”

Actually it is better to practice during the working day (if we can) since the track is relatively empty compare to practice during the weekend. Today we have Didi, Ari, Bona, Ochi ,Samuel and I.

Ochi came with his Serena:

Ok, get ready:

I came in first, warming up my tires for a few laps:

I had some easy ride for the first three laps:

Ochi came in and also warming up his tires:

Didi came a bit later and join the ride:

Start getting a better feeling, I open the throttle a bit wider:

I got a company, a new young guy using IMI Racing Suit (Uh.. I forget his name). He followed me tight:

Ochi also getting farter after the tires were warmed enough:

Didi also has tuned in and increase the speed:

I followed Didi and learn how he could be so smooth on the corners:

Not so long Bona joined in:

I also followed Bona and learn from him. He is now a lot faster than me.

Samuel came in later. He start and ride fast directly. From the record, he is the fastest among the riders today.

I still have some more laps before, take a break and return to the pit:

Stop just before mid-day, take a rest and lunch together, we then rush back to Jakarta to our own offices. What a nice break.

The end.
