Asia Talent Cup: Indonesian Andi wins for first time


It was a day of celebration for Indonesian rider and his fan when rider Andi Izdihar took his first ever victory at the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup.

Andi beat Japanese rider Sasaki and Thai rider Chantra to take 1st place, but it did not come easy for the 17 year old Indonesian. It was a tough dice between the top two with both swapping places continuously throughout the 14 lap race. Ultimately the top two were separated by just 0.029 seconds at the finish line.

Race 2 of the second round in Losail Circuit in Qatar however was essentially a carbon copy of the first one, which took place on Saturday.

Young Thai rider fastest amongst all in Qatar


It is a wonder why the qualifying times of nine riders from the Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup were below the best lap time achieved in the same series at Losail Circuit last year.

However, raising above the rest was Thai rider Nakarin Atiratphuvapat, who set the fastest time in qualifying.

Nakarin also won Race 2 of the first race of the season in Buriram, Thailand last week.

Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup Honda NSF250R Specs

SAATC-NSF-250R Shell Advance Asia Talent Cup (SAATC) uses homogenised Honda NSF250R Moto3™ bikes. All of the riders are riding the same bikes, so the factor that can differentiate between them is the skill. I remember quotes from a comic book "Machines can be bought, but skills are not for sale". Still, the machine of the SAATC intrigues me, so check out the technical data after the break:
