Asian On Road Championships Rd4 – Report

Asian On Road Championships Rd4 – Report

Last weekend the 4th round of the Asian On Road Championships was held at the PYC Raceway in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is well know for being a hot bed of on-road racing and this weekend a great turnout joined for the AOC’s first visit to this place. The PYC Raceway is a beautiful facility tucked away between all the high rise buildings just outside of Hong Kong. The format for the weekend was controlled practice on Friday, qualifiers Saturday and Sunday morning and triple finals for all mains on Sunday. Unfortunately on Friday, mother nature had plans to wash out the Friday practice day as the drivers encountered heavy rains throughout the day. This made the organisers make some changes to the program on Saturday to give the racers some practice in the morning and then go into the qualifiers. PYC raceway has the capability to run at night and knowing they needed to get as many qualifiers in on Saturday as they could, the qualifiers were run until about 8.30pm getting 4 rounds in.
