Honda Team Asia's Ai Ogura finished a fantastic sixth, while teammate Kaito crashed, missing his chance to achieve a good result in the lightweight category of the Czech Republic Grand Prix.

Ai Ogura | Honda Team Asia (6th)

“This time I started well, and I was riding in fifth or sixth position, but a Suzuki crashed in front of me, and I lost many positions. After that, it was a tough race, but I managed the last laps well to finish in P6. I don’t know the final position, but without the crash the race would have been much easier.”

“It’s a real pity. Nothing to say, I crashed again. I tried to keep calm during the race while running in the top group and managing the situation. But five laps to go I made a tiny mistake, and I crashed. Now I must get a good result in Austria.”

Hiroshi Aoyama | Team Manager, Honda Team Asia

“Today both riders started very well. Unfortunately, a rider crashed in front of Ogura, losing a lot of time and pushing him to the back of the group.  In the end, he recovered many positions, but I think he missed the chance to fight for the podium. P6 is good, and we should not forget that he’s a rookie.

"Regarding Kaito, he was fighting for the podium, but he crashed again. It isn’t what we wanted, but he’s ok, and we have another race in one week in Austria, where he will have the chance to demonstrate his speed and performance. It’s a pity because it was possible to have both riders in the front. We hope next week we will have better results.”
