Vice President Ma’ruf Amin received a visit of young racer Mario Suryo Aji at his office in Jakarta, Saturday (22/1). The Indonesian racer who was accompanied by Governor of East Java province Khofifah Indar Parawansa asked for blessing and support from the Vice President before competing in the Moto3 GP 2022 world motorcycle racing event.

“On behalf of the Government, I would like to express my appreciation to all parties, especially to Mario, who is the only Indonesian to qualify for the 2022 Moto3 Grand Prix,” said the Vice President.

He also wished for the best and supported Mario to achieve the best achievement.

“We certainly feel proud and I hope that Mario can achieve maximum achievements,” he said, while advising that Mario should continue to practice well and be disciplined in following all the rules of his coach.

“You must continue to focus and follow the instructions of the coaches in order to succeed. Once succeed, you will become the pride of our country and become an example for other racers,” Ma’ruf said to Mario.

Although Mario has become an international racer, Ma’ruf expressed hope that he will still pursue his formal education.

Furthermore, the Vice President also appreciated Mario’s parents who have provided support and motivation to their son so that he can be who he is now.

“Without the encouragement of his parents, of course Mario would not be able to achieve his achievements, so the parents’ role is extraordinary,” said the Vice President.

Ma’ruf also appreciated the coaches and sponsors for bringing the young racer to the Moto3 2022 championship.

In the Moto3 2022 event which starts in March, Mario will compete under Honda Team Asia replacing Andi Gilang, the previous Indonesian racer. In his debut later, Mario is rumored to be featured with a Japanese racer Taiyo Furusato to take part in 21 series of matches in 16 countries.

Mario asked for the full support of the Government and the people of Indonesia so that he can make Indonesia proud in the international arena.

For the record, Mario Suryo Aji managed to penetrate the 2022 Moto3 season after getting an impressive record when competing in the 2021 FIM CEV Moto3 Junior World Championship. In this competition, Mario succeeded to collect 58 points and stay in 12th position. (Vice Presidential Office/UN) (EST/LW)
