The world of on road racing has been a favorite for many of us around the world. From the early days of Pro 10 Cars and 1/12th Scale to Touring cars and F-1, there has always been a love for On Road. Years ago I started the IIC event to make a world caliber event in Las Vegas. Through the years it has grown to be a great event. Later on we started the Euro Touring Series and that also has grown to be a great series that brings everyone together to share in our passion for on road racing. Now it is time for the next event.
Over the past few years, I have been asked if it was possible to get a big on road event going in Asia. Well after much planning and work it is time to announce the Asian On road Championships. The AOC will be a group of events that travel around Asia and each year reaching out to new locations. On Road racing is extremely strong in Asia and the roots of many of the companies that design and manufacture cars and parts are located within Asia making this the perfect place to make an exciting Championship.
In our opening year we will begin with 4 events. Each event will have classes unique to that event. Since we will be traveling around to different locations we want to include classes that are popular at the local level as well as the main classes we will offer at each event.
In our first year, each event will be a separate event unto it self. This will not be a point series. Since the distance to travel to each event is great, we will crown champions at each venue. This year will take us to some wonderful locations. Here is a list of our locations for this first year.
|ROUND 1||RCI INDOOR RACEWAY||SHANGHAI, CHINA|
|ROUND 2||MELBOURNE RC CLUB||MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA|
|ROUND 3||RC CITY||BANGKOK, THAILAND|
|ROUND 4||YATABE ARENA||TOKYO, JAPAN|
As you can see from this list, we will visit some wonderful locations. Next year we already have plans in the works to visit, Malaysia, Philippines and hopefully a few other locations. This years finals will be held at the most historic venue in our industry. Yatabe Arena. The AOC will be part of their RC Festival that will have activity on all the tracks located at Yatabe and it will include a huge Drift Championship that draws Hundreds of racers, spectators and full scale drift cars and drivers. It is great that we will be part of the RC Festival as this is an amazing event and the perfect way to wrap up our first year of the AOC.
The AOC will focus on the fun we can have in an organized event. Simple rules, great friendships and exciting racing. All the info can be found on our website at www.aocrc.com as well as our Facebook page.
Class we will offer at each event will be:
|Modified Super Stock||13.5 Boosted|
|Stock||17.5 Non Boost|
|FWD||17.5 Non Boost|
|F-1||21.5 Non Boost|
As I mentioned each venue will have other classes we will offer but those listed above are the main classes.
I hope you will be able to make plans to join us in the AOC and if you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
