Quite simple,

if you wanna just get the feel of circuit riding, you can go for any of the bike only trackdays, or you can even try out the MMST Time Attack events. Even SBKs are running around the tracks now days, lots of demo event to get the feel for things

If you wanna race in south east asia, you have a few options -
1. Thailand Cup
2. Malaysian Super Series
3. Australian Superbikes or Super sports
4. Japanese superbikes or super sports

Dubai
1. Dubai supersports

Best option if you wanna go raceing with some education, is Highside tours. www.highsidetours.com contact graham, I have also done the course shaved 5 second off my lap in chennai

Can you throw some light on the Thai series? 600 cc superbikes miight be too much for beginners.

125 cc 2 strokes are a great way to start. Not having so much power will teach you to keep the momentum of the bike thru the corners. We still need a credible 4 stroke replacement for the 125 cc 2 stroke GP racing.

The Thai SBK Championship is a support race of the touring car series there, I think any thing above a 750 goes, but most of the grid consists of 1000c bikes and a few GSXR750s, if I am not mistaken the champion was riding a CBR1000RR

I have heard of a CBR150 cup in Thailand, I dont know the details about the this but I have some friends who attended one of the HRC Training on these bikes. In my opinion the best class to start with is a small capacity 4 stroke, and also get as much time on dirt as possible.
