1992 FIM Pan Pacific Superbike Championship
Despite the Japanese Federation's efforts to promote the second season of the Pan Pacific Road Racing Championship, it was a bleak return: the 250cc class had been abolished leaving only Superbikes; of the six Pan Pacific nations only four were scheduled to host (two in June and two in late October supporting the World Championship); and just a few weeks before the first race the last three events were cancelled. The sole round took place at CP MINE with a grid of 22 riders but just 3 from outside Japan - two New Zealanders and an Italian representing Thailand. Front-running All Japan TT-F1 rider Keiichi Kitagawa crashed almost immediately after the start having been fastest all weekend, leaving the Tsukigi Racing teammates Shin'ichiro Imai and Kiyokazu Tada to dominate a fairly uneventful race.
