Reiterberger, 29, is contesting the six-event ARRC with the ONEXOX BMW TKKR Team alongside his EWC campaign with BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team.
The Chang International Circuit in Buriram is up first on Reiterberger’s ARRC schedule from today (24 March) until Sunday with events also taking place in China, Indonesia, Japan and Malaysia.
“I’m delighted to get another chance in the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship year and also to remain a part of the BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team in the FIM Endurance World Championship,” the German IDM champion from 2022 said. “Three years ago, I already competed in the ARRC and won the season opener in Sepang. Unfortunately, the season was ended prematurely due to the coronavirus pandemic. I am looking forward to the new attempt in Asia and the great tracks.
“We are well prepared for ARRC 2023, which starts this weekend at the MotoGP circuit in Buriram. I like the track and have good memories, because in 2016 I already rode here in the top five in the World Superbike Championship.
“We ended the two-day test with two best times, but the lead over our opponents was small. This weekend we have to take another step, but I am confident. Our goal is clear: We want to win races and take the title.”
Of his EWC ambitions, Reiterberger said: “In the EWC we want to fight for the title together with BMW. The bike has been improved again for 2023. I wish us all a great and successful season and look forward to seeing the fans on site.”
Anthony West, who rides for Maco Racing Team in the EWC, will be on of Reiterberger’s rivals in the ARRC. The Australian will be part of the Victor Racing MLT Yamaha line-up.
