Boon Siew Honda to promote Malaysian riders with two teams in ARRC

In order to support more Malaysian riders to international racing scene, Boon Siew Honda (BSH) will be fielding two teams in the 2020 FIM Asia Road Racing Championship (ARRC). BSH is entering the SuperSports 600cc and Asia Production 250cc classes as the focus of the team’s talent development programme.

The Boon Siew Honda Racing Team will continue to challenge for the SS600 crown with the Azroy Hakeem Anuar and Helmi Azman pairing. The two riders will be looking to improve on their standings in the 600cc class, having finished 4th overall and 7th overall in 2019 respectively.

Meanwhile, Idemitsu Boon Siew Honda Racing will make its full season debut in the AP250 class with young talents Idlan Haqimi and Izam Ikmal in the saddle.
