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 series going in Asia. Thus the birth of the Asian On road Championships. The AOC will be a group of events that travel around Asia and each year bringing a fun and exciting series to racers and helping sponsors expose their brands to new customers. 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.
For our third year of the AOC will be again starting out the series in the fastest growing area of RC in the world and that is China. RCI V2 will be our host and upon arriving you are welcomed to one of the nicest indoor facilities around. Rich Wang and his staff stop at nothing to ensure everyone has a great experience at RCIV2 as well as their stay in Shanghai. Round 2 will be held at a new location for us that will be Hobby Habbit in Adelaide Australia. Australia is no stranger to the AOC and after the 2 great years we had Down Under, we are very excited to visit this new location with a beautiful indoor tarmac track. Round 3 is still in the works to finalize all the details and location. Round 4 will take us to Hong Kong and Round 5 will be at the most historic venue in our world of racing and that is Yatabe Arena.
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.
All of us involved with the AOC hope that you will be able to join us for one of the events as we travel around Asia and the Pacific and share in the love we all have of On Road racing.
