Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup 2015 candidates shortlisted for Selection Event

Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup 2015 candidates shortlisted for Selection Event

A total of 174 candidates have been invited to the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup 2015 Selection Event to be held at the Sepang Circuit, on 27th and 28th October.

The 174 young hopefuls aged between 13 and 20, from various Asian countries, in addition to Australia and New Zealand, have been invited to take part in the selection process for next year’s second staging of the Cup.

During the enrollment period in recent weeks more than 700 applications were received from aspiring young riders from Afghanistan, Brunei, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, plus Australia and New Zealand.

Having carefully analysed the applications, the selection committee directed by Alberto Puig have chosen 174 candidates – who will be asked to demonstrate their riding skills on Honda machinery over two days of testing at the Sepang circuit at the end of October, just after the 2014 Shell Advance Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix – in a first step towards turning potential into performance.

Following the Selection Event, the committee will meet again to finalise the list of the 22 riders who will take part in the 2015 edition of the Shell Advance Talent Asia Cup.
