« We have to build an academy, the motorbike must also have a Mini-GP. Indeed, in Indonesia there are many championships, but using a duck motorbike. It can’t be denied, you can’t use it, » he said again.
Currently, said Kemalsyah again, even if there is a sole agent for brand holders (ATPM) that has an education program for racers, there is not yet a maximum.
« After all, they are foreign companies. Even if there is (early racer education), it is related to CSR programs, » said Kemalsyah.
Furthermore, Kemalsyah wants the presence of Pertamina and Mandalika in the SAG Team to spur ATPM to seriously make Indonesia have world-class racers. « So it’s not just about CSR, » said Kemalsyah. (OL-6)
