Kuala Lumpur, 4th March 2022 – Boon Siew Honda will be fielding 2 teams in the 2022 FIM Asia Road Racing Championship, joining the SuperSports 600cc, and Asia Production AP250cc class as the focus of the team’s talent development programme after 2 years break due to Covid-19 pandemic.
Boon Siew Honda Racing Team will continue to challenge the SS600 crown with Azroy Hakeem Anuar, Helmi Azman, and the return of Khairul Idham Pawi also known as SuperKIP to the starting grid. SuperKIP is well known in Malaysia when he became the first ever Malaysian rider to win in the MotoGP race twice in the Moto3 category in 2016. With the current lineup, the team will be looking to secure the SS600cc class title once again using the latest CBR600RR racing machine which is making its full debut this year in the ARRC. The performance of this latest race machine has also proven itself with championship wins for 2 consecutive year in Japan.
Meanwhile, Idemitsu Boon Siew Honda Racing Team will be lining up a new rising star, Idlan Haqimi alongside another soon-to-be announced rider for AP250 class. With 2 riders in this class, the team also aims to challenge for the AP250 title.
