2019 is set to be an exciting season for the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship.
Along with the highly anticipated introduction of the ASB1000 class, the race calendar has been expanded into a 7-round championship, which again includes a visit to South Australia’s Tailem Bend in conjunction with the ASBK Championship.
The 2-race format which has been in practice since 2000 has been retained.
The Championship will now feature four main classes – the ASB1000 (Asia Superbike), SuperSports 600cc, Asia Production 250cc, and the Underbone 150cc.
The action starts in early March with an official test at the Sepang International Circuit on May 5 and 6, 2019.
