Muklada leads the ADC championship with 186.5 points ahead of the grand finale at her home track, the Chang International Circuit in Thailand in December. This season she has won 6 of 10 races.
Speaking about her participation in FIM CEV, Muklada commented: “I think the participation with the CEV this time will be a good opportunity, which doesn’t come often, for me to learn and gain first-hand experience in an international racing competition where rising stars from around the world meet.”
“I’ve been exercising regularly and consulting a trainer, readying my physical strength for the competition. Furthermore, to prepare for the race, I’ve also studied the circuit environment through internet. I’ve been devoted for all of my races. But this time, I don’t expect a high result because I take this chance as a step to learn from the international platform.”
“Thanks so much Honda Motor Japan and A. P. Honda Racing Thailand Team for given the opportunity for me to follow my dream which I’ve always had since day one I entered the motor sport. And also thank my family and my fans who have been very supportive. Please keep supporting me, a young Thai racer, in every race. Thank you.”
Muklada was born in September 8th, 1993. 22 years old debuted in Thailand Championship in 2012 and one year later she won 3 races. She is the only female rider on the Asia Dream Cup Championship grid and also in FIM CEV Repsol Moto3™ Junior World Championship 2015.
