The Asia Road Racing Championship has signed a multi-year strategic cooperative relationship with the Zhuhai International Circuit as a means to harness the growing interest in motorsports in China.

In a bid to create more diversity and inclusiveness within the Asian series, the professional team at the Zhuhai International Circuit will act as a full-fledged race promoter for the ARRC in China. This will include the dissemination of information on Chinese media platforms such as Weibo and Youku.

It is hoped that this partnership will result in more participation by Chinese teams and riders in the Asia Road Racing Championship. Both parties also do not discount the possibility of the ARRC’s return to China circuits in the near future.

The Zhuhai International Circuit, built in 1996, is one of the first professional racing circuits in China. In many ways, the Zhuhai International Circuit pioneered the start of motorsports culture in China.

The Asia Road Racing Championship, which coincidentally also began in 1996, is the largest motorcycle racing championship in the Asian region. The racing series, which features the SuperSports 600cc, Asia Production 250cc and Underbone 150cc categories, contains an eclectic mix of seasoned campaigners racing against aggressive young talents. This unique combination has often resulted in an explosive powder keg in every race.
