Circuit Ricardo Tormo, Valencia is the next stop for the Asia Talent Team, just before the the 2017 championship reaches its halfway point.

Kazuki Masaki and Yuki Kunii will both be looking to repeat their top five finishes, and Masaki will be looking for another pole position. Promising young talent Andi Farid will be looking to improve after his return from injury in Barcelona. Ai Ogura and Somkiat Chantra will both be sitting out the Valencian round due to injuries sustained from crashes in round 3.

Last season, Masaki made his FIM CEV Repsol debut and managed an impressive twelfth in race one and seventh in race 2, while his team-mate Kaito Toba (who has since progressed to Moto3 with Honda Team Asia) won the race. The Japanese rider also took another point scoring finish as they headed into the final round in Valencia.

There are two eighteen lap races on Sunday, with race one set for 11:00am (GMT +2) and race two set for 14:00. All the action can be followed live on the FIM CEV Repsol YouTube channel.
