Asia’s only leading Moto3 racing series, the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup, has now open registration for its upcoming 2016 season.
Interested applicants only need to register online via the series’ official website, www.asiatalentcup.com. The registration period will only last from July 1, 2015 until August 15, 2015 and is only applicable for youths aged 13 to 21 years old from the Asian region – Australia and New Zealand included.
Applicants who are successfully pre-selected here will be notified in the following months prior to the series’ scheduled selection event in the Sepang International Go Kart Circuit later this year on October 20 and 21. The selection event will be held shortly after the 2015 Shell Advance Malaysian MotoGP race weekend and the season finale of the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup 2015 season.
Shortly after announcing this, CEO of Dorna Sports Carmelo Ezpeleta commented: “We are delighted to be launching the third edition of the Cup, a project designed to identify and develop the best young Asian talent, and make the sport more accessible to future riders.”
The series’ third running will also see the continued support from title sponsor and partner Shell Advance. Shell’s general manager of marketing B2C, Andrew Herpher states: “Shell Advance is extremely proud of its commitment to this programme as it now enters the third season recruitment drive and continues the search to find the next talented crop of young riders and potential future world champions.”
