The title chase in the 2017 FIM Asia Road Racing Championship goes down to the wire. The 4.5km Chang International Circuit, host to the season finale, will be the battleground on which the final champions will be determined.
The Asia Road Racing Championship was the first international-level motorcycle racing series to race at the Chang Circuit in 2014. Since then, this spectator-friendly circuit has become a firm favourite among the teams and riders in the Asian paddock.
The winning record at the Chang International Circuit is held jointly by three riders – Yuki Takahashi (SuperSports 600cc), Nakarin Atiratphuvapat (Asia Production 250cc) and Hiroki Nakamura (Asia Dream Cup). Each of the riders have won four times at the Chang International Circuit respectively. The three record-holders are not racing in the 2017 season of the ARRC.
The only rider who has a chance of creating a new win record at the Chang Circuit is to be found in the Underbone 150cc category. Indonesian rider Wahyu Aji Trilaksana has taken three wins at the Chang International Circuit to date. He could possibly create a new record of winning five races – provided he scores a double win in the coming final round.
