New Delhi, Nov 16 (PTI) The 20th JK Tyre- FMSCI National Racing Championship will have a robust international flavour, with the addition of the high-profile FIM Asia Cup of Road Racing (ACRR) leg to the grand finale.

Top bikers from Japan, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Nepal, Taiwan and India will participate in Round 3 of the ACCR on November 18-19 at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida.

India will be represented by Sai Rahil Pillarisetty and Israel Vanlalhruaizela, who are fourth in the standings after the first two rounds in Thailand and Taiwan.

They have accumulated 28 points, 23 points behind the leaders from Philippines (5 points) and Thailand (25 points).

They will look to take advantage of the home conditions to move up the ladder.

"We are delighted to be hosting the third round of the ARRC. It is an important event on the FIM calendar, and will add value to the finale," Sanjay Sharma, Jk Motorsports president, said.

"We also have a couple of categories for Super Bikes that makes it truly exciting for speed junkies and bike-lovers," he added.

The Asia Cup is a wonderful platform and has stayed true to its original aim this year as well bringing some of the best young riders from the continent to compete in national team competition with FIM-affiliated organizations nominating their participants.

The motorbikes, along with a team of factory mechanics, are supplied by the sponsoring manufacturer.

Each team fields two riders and is awarded one point for a win, two for a second-place finish and so on.

The team with the lowest points is declared the champion at the end of the season.

The JK National Racing Championship finale will see battles for titles in the Euro JK 17, LGB Formula 4 and the Suzuki Gixxer Cup
