TJ gears up for PSBK 2021 title showdown
Access Plus Racing-Okada Manila is bracing for their toughest weekend this 2021 as the team heads into season finale of the Philippine Superbike Championship (PSBK) with 2 titles at stake. Father-and-son duo Timothy Joseph “TJ” and Toti Alberto are both leading their respective categories and aim to take the championship this 11th and 12th of December at the Clark International Speedway (CIS).
TJ has delivered a near-perfect season so far taking 7 wins out of 8 races. He and his #77 Ducati Panigale V4R has been dominant at every outing, which the team hopes to maintain in the season ender. Despite his string of victories, Access Plus Racing-Okada Manila is still finding improvements on both TJ and the bike made evident when the 24-year-old ace smashed the CIS track record with a 1:50.137 lap during the previous round. With a 27 point lead in the championship, his main focus will be on securing the Superbike Rider of the Year title.
The season ender of the 2021 Philippine Superbike Championship will take place from the 11th to 12th of December at the Clark International Speedway for a double header of Rounds 5 and 6.
“I’m looking to do my best to continue to score the points necessary to take the rider of the year title as I head into the weekend with a 27 point lead. All our efforts will be focused on the championship for Access Plus Racing-Okada Manila. If I can get some race wins in the process it will be a good bonus.”
