The Pro Draft is the official selection phase of the competition with each player taking part in three online challenges using the Official MotoGP™ videogame. At the end of the three-time trial tests Kana finished third in the Rest of the World standings - first Asian gamer - and was the top placed in the PC category, thanks to two first place finishes (Qatar and Austin) and a second place in Thailand.

The Indonesian gamer - who races under the handle Sanshoqueen - will now represent Petronas Yamaha SRT against 10 other eSport riders in an eight-race championship - Global Series - that will be held over four different MotoGP™ venues.
