ARRC TO RACE SUPERBIKES IN 2019

The FIM Asia Road Racing Championship is set to introduce a Superbike class in its race lineup for the 2019 season. The technical specifications for the new class will follow the FIM SuperStock Regulations.

Ron Hogg, Director, Two Wheels Motor Racing Sdn Bhd

“Since we first announced our intention to race the Superbike class in 2015, we have held multiple meetings with all the stakeholders in the Asian motorcycle racing industry. We believe that the time is finally right to turn the Asian Superbike class from a concept into reality. In recent years, the SuperBike class has become the leading premiere class in the various national championships around the Asian region.”

“The decision will open up the championship for participation from more manufacturers who are currently unable to race in the SuperSports 600cc class. It will also allow Asian riders to further develop their level of riding in the ultimate class of Production Bikes. Ultimately, we hope that the new class will attract top riders from around the world to race in this region, thereby creating a vibrant and thriving motorsports culture in Asia.”
