- 2018 can now be inked your diary as another exciting season takes shape
The 2018 Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup calendar has now been confirmed, and the entry list of riders who will be taking part has been released. The young riders will be taking on twelve races across six weekends in 2018, racing alongside some incredible Championships. Seven countries are represented, with competitors from Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, Qatar, Australia, the Philippines and Malaysia lining up.
Testing begins in February at Sepang International Circuit before the rider’s head for Qatar for the season opener alongside MotoGP™. Following a race weekend alongside WorldSBK at Buriram and a trip to Sepang with the Malaysian Superbike Championship, the calendar then ends the year alongside MotoGP™ once more – at Buriram, Motegi and Sepang, with the curtain coming down in Malaysia for what has become the traditional final round of the year.
