With its official fuel sponsor Petron Blaze 100 Euro 6, the IAME Series Asia is all set to kick off another season this 2019. The upcoming race calendar will feature 6 rounds across the region, which begins this March 23/24 at the Clark International Speedway in the Philippines.
Like in previous years, the 4 main categories of the series are: Cadet, Junior, Senior, and Master. But they’re also adding a new Clubman category that’s designed to encourage and promote grassroots racing for amateurs. Each race weekend will then have Practice on Saturday followed by Qualifying, Race 1, and Race 2 on Sunday. The first of which will use the newly-constructed Clark International Speedway Kart Track in Pampanga. The 13-turn, high speed circuit is located within the compound of the Clark International Speedway and aims to further fuel the sport in the country.
After the Philippines, the IAME Series Asia will then visit circuits in Thailand and Malaysia with the season running from March until September 2019.
