Chantra causes madness in Thailand

Collective madness at the International Circuit with Somkiat Chantra on pole. The great local hero has signed the first pole in the history of a Thai driver at the same time as his first and it had to be precisely in the Thai GP. Bravo for him and for the local fans who are flocking to this Asian event.

Chantra beat Arbolino by 85 thousandths and Ogura, his boxing partner in the IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia, by 0.264, who tightens the nuts on Augusto from that third place with which he closes the front row. And it is that Fernández, leader of the general with only two points ahead of the Japanese, will start five positions behind, from eighth, and forced to come back.

The man from Madrid who lives in Mallorca will have Acosta ahead of him, his Red Bull KTM Ajo teammate who has already declared that he is willing to help him, because “a title is more important than a victory”, what remains to be seen is how and when, yes, here and now, four races from the end. The Moto3 champion will start fourth, opening a second row in which Vietti and López will also be.

Chantra is experiencing a situation similar to that of Acosta, because Ogura is his boxing partner, although his home race is what it is, and with the madness for the local hero that is in the environment, it is hard to believe that the Thai is going to run thinking about helping your partner and not about winning. His grandstand of 2,500 fans ran out of tickets in just three minutes, but beyond that point the entire circuit will push him to finish as high as possible. And you have to remember that he already knows what it’s like to win, because he did it in Indonesia earlier in the season.

Returning to the grid, third row for Dixon, Fernández and Navarro. Fourth for González, Beaubier and Salac. Fifth for Bedsneyder, Alcoba and Arenas. And sixth for Kubo, Roberts and Canet. Further back will Ramírez (27th). It should be noted that Canet crashed again in Q2 and that he has accumulated three crashes this weekend. And that Roberts and Arenas escaped unharmed from the spectacular impact between their motorcycles.

The race will be at 8:20 in the morning in peninsular time and will be worth it, among other things, for the fight for the title and to see at the end how Chantra thanks his public for such dedication.
