#asiapower AT THE SUZUKA 8 HOURS


Five rounds in each season of the Endurance World Championship calendar – Bol D’or, Le Mans 24 hours, 8 hours of Oschersleben, 8 hours of Slovakia Ring, and the Suzuka 8hours. Of the five, the Suzuka leg of the championship often carried a vibe of its own. As the backyard to all the Japanese motorcycle manufacturers, the Suzuka 8 hours is where they pull out all the stops.

2017 marks the 40th anniversary of this iconic race. Fittingly, Suzuka will be the grand finale of the 2016-2017 season of the EWC. This year’s meet has attracted a host of racing superstars, including a large number of top Asian riders.

Below are the list of current and former Asia Road Racing Championship (ARRC) riders who will be taking part in the Suzuka 4 hour and 8 hour Endurance:

Suzuka 4 Hours

The Suzuka 4 Hours, which takes place on Saturday morning, is the 600cc version of the 8 hours. The 4 Hours is split into two classes – International and National.
