Commenting on the practice session, Andi said, “I managed to get my best lap time in practice session 1 as the weather condition was better. During the practice session 2, it was a little hot and I also did not have a very good feeling with my machine. The mechanics are currently working to identify any issues with the machine. Overall, today was good. I will focus better for tomorrow’s qualifying session.”

“This is my first time in MSBK but most of the riders are those who are also participating in the ARRC. To me, the standards of MSBK is almost similar to that of the ARRC. I will do my best and hopefully, it would be a good one.”
