The Korea Motorcycle Federation (KMF) is forging ahead with preparations for the introduction of the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship at the Korea International Circuit in Yeongam. Chief among them are the efforts to prepare South Korean riders to take their place among the best riders in Asia.
As such, the KMF has entered a South Korean rider to wildcard in the Asia Production 250cc class at the season finale in Thailand this coming December 1 and 2, 2018.
33-year-old Kim Woo Jung is the reigning national champion in South Korea. The KMF has negotiated for a wildcard rider for Kim with the Manual Tech KYT Kawasaki Racing. This means that Kim will temporarily become team mates with Andi Muhammad Fadly.
