RIDERS – Shinya Nakano, Simone Corsi and Roberto Locatelli – took time off from their training programme to visit Beta Mega Store (BMS). The trio are in Malaysia for this weekend's Moto GP at the Sepang International Circuit.

Shinya, who rides for Konica Minolta Honda Team in the Moto GP, said he was pleased to visit Beta Mega Store.
“Beta has been a strong supporter of motor sports. I am also happy to be in Malaysia as the conditions are similar to that in Japan. I am looking for a good outing in this weekend's race. It was quite cold in Australia last weekend. I hope it does not rain this weekend in Sepang'' added Shinya.
The 20-year-old Corsi is expecting a hot weather and anticipates a tough encounter in the 125cc. Onboard the Aprilia Skilled Racing Team, Corsi, the winner in Turkey, is known as the Terminator in the racing circle.
