The final round of the 2019 Asia Road Racing Championship at Buriram (THA) could not have been more exciting. BMW racer Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman (MAS), from the Onexox TKKR SAG Team, travelled to Thailand in second place in the overall standings – and left as the first Asian Superbike Champion in history. That is because the 1000 cc class formed part of the Asia Road Racing Championship for the first time this year.


Azlan Shah bagged a brace of victories at the penultimate round of the season in Sepang (MAS) reduced the gap to 19 points to championship leader Broc Parkes (AUS / Yamaha). Azlan Shah then once again showed just what he is capable of at the finale in Thailand.

He finished runner-up on his BMW S 1000 RR in the first of the two races to further reduce his deficit. That meant the title race went down to the final race of the season.

Azlan Shah took the lead at the start and went on to take his sixth victory of the season. In doing so, he leapfrogged Parkes in the championship and claimed the title with a lead of 13 points (238 points to 225).


Azlan Shah’s team-mate Ali Adriansyah Rusmiputro (INA) finished twelfth and eleventh in the final two races. The Onexox TKKR SAG Team ended the season in second place in the Team competition, just three points behind the champions.
