Sepang International Circuit, September 2, 2020: Looking forward to the 2021 season of the Malaysia Superbike Championship, Boon Siew Honda Sdn Bhd has unveiled a new initiative aimed at uplifting the full-frame sector of Malaysian motorcycle racing.
The new programme, the Boon Siew Honda 250cc Racing Support Programme, will offer race-prepared Honda CBR250RR motorcycles at a discounted price to interested teams and riders in the MSBK250 class.
Teams and riders who have opted to buy into this package will take part in a sub- category within the MSBK250. “The objective of the Boon Siew Honda 250cc Racing Support Programme is to uplift the sport of motorcycle racing in general. In the PETRONAS Malaysian Cub Prix Championship, we run a very successful grassroots mono-brand race, the Honda Dash 125 Challenge. This is our talent identification vehicle. In the Asia Road Racing Championship, Boon Siew Honda runs our own factory team to develop the next batch of world-level Malaysian riders. Previously, there was a gap between Cub Prix and ARRC. This programme in the MSBK is aimed at bridging it,” said Yoshitaka Nakamura, Managing Director & CEO of Boon Siew Honda.
“We hope to encourage new talents with this support programme, not just riders but also new teams interested to venture into the sport.”
