JK Racing Asia Series heads to Europe in its second season

The second edition of JK Racing Asia Series is off to a flying start promising nail-biting action in the world’s best circuits. The Series consisting of 16 races will take giant strides in the new season with the premier championship going truly global in its second year, as it makes its maiden entry into Europe. The first round of the series kicked off at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia on May 25-27, 2012 where it was a part of the Malaysian Super Series event.

All of the five circuits that the series visits in 2012 are Formula 1 circuits which are crucial to driver development in preparing them for higher levels of racing. Not only JKRAS is currently the only ‘Junior’ Formula Racing Series in the world that provides a unique opportunity to the drivers to compete in front of the Formula One fraternity but it‘s unique also because no other series of the same league runs as a showcase event to some of the most spectacular and entertaining motorsport events in the world. In Malaysia it ran as a support race to Malaysian Super Series, at the Paul Ricard Circuit in France it will be staged alongside the world-famous Blancpain Endurance event, at Belgium’s Spa Francorchamps, it will be a support event to the high-octane Spa 24 Hours race. The series will then return to Asia and run as a support race to Formula One races in Singapore and India before finally culminating at the Buddh International Circuit, Greater Noida where it will run alongside the World GT1 championship where the 2012 champions will be honored.
