Macantua.com – Kalau menyimak soal perseteruan di ARRC Thailand kemarin pasti bakal tau cerita ini. Selain CBR250RR yang harus bongkar mesin hingga tidak start alias absen nya pembalap jagoan Indonesia Gerry Salim ada juga konflik yang terjadi dari kubu Autralia lewat pembalapnya Anthony West yang merasa dicurangi setelah penalty diskualifikasi diberikan kepadanya. Tapi hari ini sang pembalap mantan Motogp ini memberikan ungkapan permohonan maafnya. Lho ada apa ini???
When things get heated ???? Firstly I’d like to thank everyone for their support after the last round of the ARRC championships in Thailand where unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my personal control I was excluded from the results. It’s been overwhelming to see so much support for me and makes me proud to be a racer. As you could imagine when I learnt of my disqualification I was extremely disappointed to say the least as I’d just won one of the most exciting races seen in the series in years. I would like to apologize to the ARRC and the organisers for calling it a corrupt championship, as a man I don’t ever like to accuse anyone of anything and I vented my frustration in the heat of the moment which as a professional racer I know I should know better not to. As
It’s been bought to my attention that our team did not remove camshafts and I was misinformed. I would also like to apologize to Thai Yamaha stating that they played a part in my disqualification which has now been shown to me was not the case.
Whenever you have competition you will have conflict, I’d like the team and the ARRC to sit down and resolve their differences. I’m here to race bikes and win and that’s all I want to focus on. I realize I am a role model to a lot of young fans out there and I do not want to send them the wrong message. I like to help out the kids as much as possible and being a good role model is another way to do this. I am sure that we can all learn from this for the future and move forward and improve on this so there is no repeats. Thanks again for all your support and see you at the next round.
Akhirnya jelas juga, ada kesalah pahaman antara West dengan mekanik tentang camshaft ternyata. Terlepas di balik itu semua ada sesuatu yang pasti permintaan maaf ini menunjukkan kalau Anthony West memang gentle mengakui kesalahannya. Panasnya sirkuit memang bisa membuat siapa saja jadi panas hati. SO wajar kalau kemarin West langsung meledak dan menuduh Yamaha Thailand yang jadi biangnya. Tapi ini juga bisa jadi pelajaran buat penyelenggara agar regulasi bisa benar benar menguntungkan semua pihak. Sama seperti kelas AP 250 yang masih panas tuh….. Kalau menurutmu gimana sob???
