The Selection Event in Malaysia puts riders through their paces to decide who will join the the 2020 Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup grid
The Selection Event to choose the Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup riders for next season is now over for another year, with Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia once again playing host. Following inscriptions on Tuesday and a day of track action to assess the new crop of hopefuls on Wednesday, 12 young riders from across Asia and Oceania have been selected to join the grid – as well as five reserve riders.
This year's Selection Event saw drier skies than last year, allowing the young hopefuls maximum track time to show what they've got. Nearly 90 riders were put through their paces throughout the day around Sepang Go-Kart track, before the Selection Committee made their final decisions in the afternoon. The committee, led by Talent Promotion Director Alberto Puig, selected riders from Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Thailand, the Philippines, Japan and Turkey to either join the grid next year or be on the reserve list.
Now the 2020 Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup is taking shape, it’s time to decide the Champion this season. The 2019 Cup will be decided at Sepang this weekend: Race 1 is on Saturday at 16:30 (GMT +8), with Race 2 underway at 10:30 on Sunday morning.
