TROY ALBERTO:“I’m really excited for the upcoming season. For the past two years I’ve been racing mostly small 250cc bikes. Although it’s been a good learning experience, I’m looking forward now to moving up to SS600 with Honda Philippines Inc. and the CBR600RR. I’ve ridden bigger bikes in the past and I believe that my riding style and frame would fit really well to the bike. All in all I’m just looking forward to it all and I can’t wait to start racing.”

SUSUMU MITSUISHI, HONDA PHILIPPINES, INC.“Since 2018, we saw good potential of Troy at Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup and Honda Thailand Talent Cup. We are happy and proud of Troy to have stepped up to ARRC SS600 this year and we bid Troy the best of Luck and we will cheer for him and the whole team.“

TOTI ALBERTO, TEAM PRINCIPAL:“Looking forward competing in SS600 through this new partnership with Honda Philippines Inc. Troy has steadily climbed up the ranks in motorcycle racing with HPI and we’re glad to be part of his new endeavor as Access Plus Racing. It’s going to be a new challenge for all of us, but I’m confident we can deliver strong results with this strong relationship.”
