IAME Series Asia (formerly known as X30 SEA) is once again breaking new ground with Round 1 of their 2019 race season to be held at the newly built Clark International Speedway Kart Track on March 23-24. Located within the Clark Freeport zone, this 13-turn, high-speed circuit boasts world-class amenities and is a stone’s throw away from Clark International airport and several 5-star accommodations. With karting interest on the quick rise in the Philippines, the arrival of a world-class kart race series to the island Republic will further fuel the sport within the community.
Petron Blaze 100 Euro 6, acknowledged as the best gasoline in the Philippines, is the official fuel sponsor the 2019 IAME Series Asia, which will consist of six rounds, as follows: (1) March 23-24 Philippines; (2) May 11-12 Thailand; (3) May 25-26 Thailand; (4) July 6-7 Malaysia; (5) August 3-4 Malaysia; (6) September 14-15 Malaysia.
According to Mr. KC Chong of the ISA organizing team, “We are expecting to see karters from all over Asia, from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Korea and of course, the Philippines! This is going to be a very exciting race to kick start the season, with drivers from so many nationalities battling it out on the beautiful circuit of Clark International Speedway. Competitors in the respective categories in the Championship will once again stand a chance to win invitations to the IAME International Finals in Le Mans, France. These invitations will be supplemented with Eur 2,000 cash and race tyre packages each, making them truly attractive prizes!” –
2019 sees the implementation of new technical regulations to the series, like the newly developed exhaust system that will give the already potent X30 engines a further performance boost. This is another example of IAME’s constant endeavor to improve the level of racing in their one-engine-make race series.
