Among the teams in the starting line-up of the forthcoming 8 Hours of Sepang in Malaysia is Honda Asia Dream Racing with Showa, one of the likely favourites to win. A closer look at a team that brings together talents from across Asia.
50 teams, including 36 full-season 2019-2020 FIM EWC entries (21 in Formula EWC, 15 in Superstock) will be on the track in Malaysia alongside 12 Asian teams seeking to qualify for the 2020 Suzuka 8 Hours.
