The 2017 IDF Asian Tour was decimated. First the New Zealand race was lost due to a change in the board of the company that controlled the road. Later the first World Cup in China was lost because the original road was being repaved, and a good enough replacement couldn’t be found in time. This left the Asian Circuit with one World Cup and two Qualifiers. Keeping it High, a race in the Philippines was just held, with the last even in the circuit in South Korea in two weeks.
