Anyone knows anyone who can help?

1st Indian racer to compete in Asian GP
India’s topmost international two wheeler racer Dilip Rogger from Chennai is all set for a hectic season in the Asian arena. The 22 year college going computer science student will become the first Indian to compete in the 6 round Asian GP races this year. The first round of this event will be held at the Sentul Circuit in Indonesia on 2nd and 3rd June. This will be Dilip Rogger’s first season in the higher level of the sport. He will be racing on a Honda CBR 600 cc motorcycle.

Over 20 riders from Indonesia, China, Macau, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan, India and a few European countries* will be seen in action in the championship. Dilip Rogger will be the sole Indian taking part in this event. Despite his best efforts Dilip has still not been able to get a full fledged sponsor. One of his well wishers is the current Chief Minister of Pondicherry, Mr. Rangasamy who has done his bit for this promising young racer.

Among those in action this weekend will be 5 times ASIAN GP champion Hamaguchi, and top contenders like Fuiad, Inakaki, and Yashuda.

Leading teams like Team Petronas Racing,
AG Hammer Singapore, Suzuki Indonesia and Yamaha Thailand are some of the big teams participating in this year’s Asian GP.

Well known riders in the European circuit will racing on behalf of the teams participating or as privateers since this championship has been drawing some of the best international bike racers regularly.
