What’s in it for the young riders?

Honda’s HPDC program aims to prepare young riders to compete in international motorcycle racing events. According to Gilbert Sison, Honda Philippines Supervisor for Motorsports, ‘The Magic 8’ is also set to undergo extensive training to help them get a chance tobecome a full-fledged Honda racer for local and prestigious international competitions.

“Throughout the program, all the qualifiers during the HPDC tryouts will undergo the Honda Racing Clinic, where they can hone their talents. As they compete for this much-anticipated race, we expect to bring out their potentials so they can prepare to compete in high-level road racing competitions here and abroad,” added Sison.

The HPDC riders, who will compete for the official races, will be using Honda’s one-make racing machine, the Honda CBR150R, a 150cc model with MotoGP DNA, designed with precision for a full-trail blazing and complete racing experience.

Since all aspiring racer’s ultimate goal is to compete in prestigious international racing events, just like Repsol Honda Racer Marc Marquez who recently earned the 2019 World Champion title at the MotoGP World Champions, the top racer of this year’s HPDC will be given a chance to join competitions abroad, including the Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup and Thailand Talent Cup.

The HPDC is in line with HPI’s ONE DREAM campaign, which aims to serve Honda Motorcycles as tools in achieving Filipino’s dreams and unite all motorcycle riders through various fun-filled activities.
