October 25th, 2014 10:23 pm by


A very interesting race opens today with the great riding by our homegrown hero, Shafiq Rasol, who wins the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup on the Race 2. He was on the leader pack of 4 riders who are fighting for the top position which consists of Date, Toba and Kunimine.

Impressive and in control Shafiq Rasol riding style makes him stays on the pack all the way to the last lap in a race of exchanging position on the last 5 lap. Shafiq is on 3rd position on the last lap but he manages to take the corner and beat the two riders ahead to secure his podium wins.

The win of Shafiq Rasol means that this is the first non-Japanese wins in SAATC. More meaningful since this is achieved in his own country.


Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup is a great race to really test the skills of a rider since the bike is only contributed from one manufacturer, Honda, with the model NSF250R. All of the specs of bike is the same.

Hoping for a great results coming from Shafiq for the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup in Race 2.

Shell provided a sneak peek into the Shell PurePlus Technology that will soon be incorporated into the Shell Advance Ultra premium motorcycle oils. This technology produces a high quality base oil from natural gas, instead of crude oil, yielding superior performing lubricants. The combination of these base oils and advanced additive technology will produce Shell Advance Ultra premium motorcycle oils with improved performance benefits.

Shell PurePlus Technology is a revolutionary gas-to-liquid (GTL) process, developed over 40 years of research that converts natural gas into crystal-clear base oil with virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil. The base oil is produced at the Pearl GTL plant in Qatar, a partnership between Shell and Qatar Petroleum, and the world’s largest source of GTL products today. GTL base oil provides enhanced viscosity, friction and volatility performance compared to more prominently used traditional base oils made from crude oil. Through the integration of the gas value chain in Qatar and Shell’s global Lubricants Supply Chain, Shell Advance Ultra with PurePlus Technology will be made available to motorcyclists in Malaysia from January 2015.   Read the rest of this entry »
