The two youngest in entire field to have made the cut are Aussie 12-year-olds Senna Agius and Ben Baker.

That duo, along with fellow Aussie Billy Van Eeerde (15), who will also contest the 2018 MotoGP Red Bull Rookies, will be taking on twelve Asia Talent Cup races across six weekends in 2018, racing alongside some incredible Championships.

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.
