Asia superbike racer TJ Alberto joins Motul MotoIR3 All-Star
Date posted on July 16, 2021
TJ Alberto will compete in the first ever MotoIR3 All–Star race for Access Plus Racing this July 17 at the Clark International Speedway Kart Track together with other star riders of Philippine road racing.
Champions, international racers and top guns of the Philippine racing scene are competing in the class sponsored by Motul, a French oil brand distributed locally by Moto Industriya.
The MotoIR3 All-Star race is part of the 2021 MotoIR Championships organized by InsideRACING and sanctioned by USRA.
TJ Alberto competed earlier in his career in the MotoIR2 class in 2015 before he became PSBK Nov/Inter champion. He then went on to compete in the Italian Superbike Championships or CIV, then in the WSBK STK1000 class. His last two seasons in 2019 and 2020 were spent as a factory Ducati rider in the ARRC ASB1000 superbike class with Team Okada Access Plus Racing.
For 2021, with the Asia race calendar set to start later in the year, Alberto joined the domestic Philippine Superbike championships (PSBK) again and won the first 3 races and a close 2nd in the other.
“No expectations for me as everything will be new. It’s the first time for me to ride this bike and these tires. The goal is to enjoy and have a fun race and some training,” said Alberto on the upcoming All-Star race.
“The main target for the season is to bring home the PSBK Championship and continue the points lead so I’m aiming just to enjoy and have a safe race. Looking forward to it!”
While racing in Europe, Alberto shared his experiences to MotoIR Chairman Al Camba that top level superbike racers use miniGP bikes to train as they cannot always ride their superbikes. The miniGP bikes require similar riding techniques to go fast that can be applied to much bigger and faster race bikes. This led the MotoIR organization to invest and pursue this new MotoIR3 spec bikes in order to bring the same training opportunity to our local riders.
Other star riders racing are Dashi Watanabe of Motul WRD, BJ Ang of Alpinestars Motul PH, Alfonsi Daquigan of 53SportsFactory, Dustin Esguerra of Zebra LEXIN, Kirk Dominguiano of BG Power Stroke and Jonh Lery Enriquez are set to excite fans this Saturday and they will be racing on board MotoIR3 Kayo spec 150cc race bikes. Same GP style bike, same tires, new track and all-star riding skills! It will be a treat to race fans indeed. The race event will be livestreamed at the InsideRACING facebook page this Saturday
