17-year-old Japanese rider Hiroki Nakamura is beginning to catch a glimpse of the potential rewards that may come his way as the fifth Asia Dream Cup Champion.
Prior to Round 5 of the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship in India, Nakamura was given the opportunity to race in the J-GP3 class of the All Japan with Honda Team Asia. Additionally, he had also been confirmed for a wildcard ride in the Spanish National Championship (CEV) in Valencia at the end of the year.
Depending on the outcome of his wildcard entries, this could potentially be Nakamura’s big break with Honda Team Asia that had successfully brought about the rise of Asian riders in the international arena. Nakamura would be hoping to follow in the footsteps of former champions Hiroki Ono and Khairul Idham Pawi.
