This weekend at Sepang the inaugural Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup reaches its conclusion with the final two races of the competition, which commenced back in March in Qatar.
Race seven of nine in the 2014 Shell Advance Asia Talent cup was a struggle of titanic proportions, hard braking, creative lines and some tough passes kept the top riders bunched together to duke it out for the podium places.
As the sun began to set behind the high banking of the Motegi circuit, the qualifying session of the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup got underway and track temperatures along the start straight began dropping rapidly as shadows crept across the track.
With two 30-minute sessions on the track today (Friday) the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup riders had plenty of time to learn the eight right and six left corners of the 2.9 mile Twin Ring Motegi circuit.
