Asia Talent Cup 2017 Selection Event candidates shortlisted

8 Sep 2016

The selection process to find the 22 lucky riders who will have the opportunity to participate in the 2017 edition of the Asia Talent Cup has reached a new and exciting phase

After the registration phase drew to a close on 21st August, with more than 600 applicants registered, and following a thorough analysis and review of the rider applications, the selection committee have compiled a shortlist of successful candidates who will take part in the Selection Event.

The selection committee, headed by Alberto Puig, have identified the 152 riders who will be invited to take part in the Selection Event, scheduled to take place at the Sepang International Circuit on Wednesday 26th October, before the last race of the current season of the Asia Talent Cup, which also takes place at the Malaysian venue.

This time the selection process will take place over the course of one day, although there are more selected candidates than in 2016. The experience of the selection team from previous editions means the selection process can now be carried more quickly and efficiently.

On that one day of riding the young applicants must demonstrate their qualities on a Honda bike at the Sepang Karting Circuit. Subsequently, the selection committee will meet again to analyse all the data and ultimately determine the final 22 names chosen to participate in the 2017 Asia Talent Cup.

Communication for the 2017 selection process began on 1st July and the registration period ran from 15th July to 21st August. During this period an intensive communications campaign also took place, with the collaboration of the main Asian circuits and federations, motorcycle riding schools and additional partners and companies.

Applications have been registered from riders in many countries across the region, including Australia, Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, South Korea, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam.

The list of the 152 riders invited to the selection process in Sepang on Wednesday 26th October is:
