Singaporean racer Ni Weiliang will return to Asia Racing Team’s AFR Series team for the 2016 season following his first full-time season in the championship. With one season of the Asian Formula Renault series firmly under his belt Weiliang will be looking to build on a season which saw him claim fifth in Class A championship standings.
Weiliang has already got to grips with the Formula Renault 2.0/13 over the course of both testing and racing. Last season Weiliang scored a top three finish resulting in points and multiple finishes within the Top-5 of Class A.
The Singaporean racer placed great emphasis on his physical preparation and has also used his first full-time season well to gain as much experience as possible. 20-year-old Weiliang now looks ahead to building on his debut season as he prepares for his second year in the championship.
Weiliang said of the season, “I’m looking forward to working with Asia Racing Team for a second full season of AFR. There is plenty to learn, especially with the new tracks in the 2016 calendar.”
Team Manager Philippe Descombes commented, “We’re pleased to welcome Weiliang back to the team for a second season in Class A. He did a huge progress throughout last season and we look forward to building on the progress made with some positive results in 2016.”
The 2016 Asian Formula Renault Series kicks off on March 20 at the Zhuhai International Circuit as part of the ever-popular Pan Delta Super Racing Festival. The 12-race championship will visit five circuits across three different Asian countries: People’s Republic of China, South Korea and Thailand.
