Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup Selection Event

Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup Selection Event

Over 100 shortlisted riders who applied to participate in the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup pre-selection event will be gathering on Monday and Tuesday at the Sepang International Circuit.

The Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup is an exciting new competition for 2014, which will act as a feeder series to the world of motorcycle racing. The new project aims to give riders from the Asian region a formal path into competitive road racing.

Led in-part by renowned and successful talent scout Alberto Puig, responsible for such talents as Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa and the leader of the successful MotoGP™ Academy, the competition will see Asia’s stars of the future participate in a six-race series in 2014 on Honda NSF250R Moto3 machines.

Over the next two days, the successful applicants for this selection event will get a chance to display their skills on 125cc Honda Future Underbones.

The 22 most talented riders who eventually make it through from the pre-selection event will race in the 2014 Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup with rounds taking place in Qatar, Indonesia (Sentul), China, Japan (Motegi), Malaysia, as well as in India (Buddh Circuit) – either on MotoGP™ or SBK race weekends or in independent events.
