Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup launches website

The Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup, the exciting new MotoGP™ feeder series for 2014, has further opened its doors with the launch of a brand-new official website.

The new project aims to give riders from the Asian region a formal path into competitive road racing. The application period for interested riders is from 18th August to 22nd September 2013.

Run by Dorna Sports, organizers of the MotoGP™ World Championship and the eni FIM Superbike World Championship, as well as co-organizer of the MotoGP Red Bull Rookies Cup, the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup will provide a spotlight for the most talented young riders in Asia.

Led in part by renowned talent scout Alberto Puig, responsible for such talents as Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa and leader of the successful MotoGP™ Academy, the competition will see Asia’s stars of the future participate in a six-race series on Honda NSF250R Moto3 machines.

The 22 most talented riders who make it through from the pre-selection event - to be held at the Sepang International Circuit in October 2013, after this year’s Malaysian MotoGP round - will then race in Qatar, Indonesia (Sentul), China, Japan and Malaysia as well as in India (Buddh International Circuit) - either on MotoGP™ or SBK race weekends, or in independent race events.

If you are between the age of 14 and 20 and think you have the talent to make it through to the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup, see full conditions to participate here. The deadline for applications is Sunday 22nd September 2013.
