Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI) officially sends off international rider Troy Alberto to Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup (ATC) and the Honda Thai Talent Cup, premier international races in the Asian region that use the Honda NSF250R, a bike made especially for racing.
The only Filipino selected to take part in ATC, Alberto completed a series of try-outs last August 2017 and begun with test races in Malaysia last February 19 to 20. The race, which will run for several months, will have six rounds and will be held in various locations including Thailand, Japan, and Qatar and will begin on March 16.
Alberto also qualified for the Thai Talent Cup, and will begin competing in April. The races aim to hone racers that will eventually compete at the Motorcycle Grand Pix or MotoGP.
HPI will also be hosting the Happy Honda Days activities at the Manila, Cebu and Davao Flagship Shops to invite more riders to visit and experience the shops’ offerings and give back. The activity will start on March 2 and will include free learn-to-ride and test ride sessions of Honda’s motorcycle models, as well as refreshments, games and giveaways.
“The Flagship Shop is more ready than ever for Honda’s growing community of riders with its improved extensive services,” Mihara said. “With our Happy Honda Days, you can visit the Flagship Shop on weekends to further experience these services.”
