It’s all set for the selection of riders to participate in the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup 2016 at the Sepang circuit.

The Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup 2016 Selection Event will see 126 candidates head to the Sepang Circuit, tomorrow 21st October.

The 126 young hopefuls aged between 13 and 20, from a variety of Asian countries, including Australia and New Zealand, have been invited to take part in the selection process for the 2016 edition.

More than 500 applications were received during the application period from aspiring young riders from Australia, Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Japan, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Rep. of Korea, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam.

With the applications carefully analysed, 126 candidates have been chosen by the selection committee, directed by Alberto Puig. These candidates will now be asked to demonstrate their riding skills on Honda machinery over a one day test event at the Sepang Circuit, just before the 2015 Shell Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix, taking a first step towards turning their potential into performance.

Following the Selection Event, the committee will meet once again to finalise the 22 riders who will take part in the 2016 edition of the Shell Advance Talent Asia Cup.
