A media presentation of the Access Plus Racing team was held at Mango Tree in BGC, Taguig on February 28.
Racing brothers TJ and Troy Alberto will once again compete in the 2020 FIM Asia Road Racing Championship (ARRC). The two are top Filipino riders who have been in the international racing scene for years now. They are sons of Philippine Superbike and Motocross luminary Toti Alberto.
For the second year, TJ Alberto is participating in the ARRC ASB1000 class on a Ducati Panigale V4R. 2019 was a learning season for him and his team as they went up against top riders and teams in the premier category. His teammate for this year is Italian racer Federico Sandi who have wildcard races in the ASB1000 in 2019. Backup rider is two-time PSBK champ Raniel Resuello. Before his ARRC stint, TJ has raced in the Philippine Superbike Championships (PSBK), WorldSBK Superstock 1000 and Italian Superbike Championships (CIV).
Troy Alberto, after remarkable performances in the 2019 Asia Talent Cup and Thai Talent Cup, is now joining the ARRC Supersports 600 class using a Honda CBR600RR. Troy bagged a number of podium finishes last year on a Honda NSF250. He also raced as a wildcard in the SS600 class in the opening round of 2019. Like his brother TJ, Troy had also won races and championship titles in the PSBK before racing international.
In attendance at the presentation were Access Plus Racing ASB1000 and SS600 team members and sponsors. Access Plus Racing is sponsored by Okada Manila, Essenza, AELLA, Ohlins Philippines, Shell, Standard Insurance and Macbeth Apparel with Ducati Philippines for the team’s entry in the ASB1000 and Honda Philippines for the SS600 class.
