The British Talent Team and the British Talent Cup has arrived, with Dorna pulling the covers off the latest phase of the Road to MotoGP™ program. Fancy yourself as the next Rossi? This could be your chance to prove it.
Designed as a stepping-stone for riders from the British Isles to get onto the world stage, the new British Talent Cup gives young talent the opportunity to grow and progress on the Road to MotoGP™.
Kicking off the launch were, FIM Moto3™ World Championship rider for the British Talent Team John McPhee, British two-wheeled legend Jeremy McWilliams, who will act as British Talent Scout for the project, and Cup Talent Promotion Director Alberto Puig.
Jeremy McWilliams, British Talent Scout: “It’s fantastic to be part of this project and to play a role in the future of motorcycling in the British Isles. It’s an important project to be involved in and I’m looking forward to getting started and showing what kind of talent we have.”
Dorna has been closely involved with young rider programs including FIM CEV Repsol and the Movistar Junior Cup, along with initiatives such as the Asia Talent Cup and the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.
With the aim of developing British riders who would otherwise struggle to gain an opportunity to showcase their talent, the British Talent Cup will race at Dorna-run events including the UK Round of WorldSBK at Donington Park and the British GP at Silverstone. Riders will be racing on a Honda NSF 250R Moto3 machine.
Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO Dorna Sports: "After the incredible success of the Asia Talent Cup we are very proud to announce another amazing initiative as part of our Road to MotoGP. With the long and illustrious history of racing in the UK and British Isles, it is the perfect place and the perfect time to begin another chapter of the UK's two-wheeled story.”
The first ever selection program for the Cup will take place in the week leading up to the 2017 British Grand Prix at Silverstone. The heat will be on as the best riders are offered the chance to race in the Cup’s inaugural 2018 season.
For riders coming through the new Cup, there’s the opportunity to watch the British Talent Team in Moto3™, in the knowledge there is support for them on the journey to the FIM World Championship with Dorna.
The application process runs from the 5th May to 18th June here: britishtalentcup.com and riders who will be invited to the selection process will be informed before the 21st July.
Alberto Puig, Talent Promotion Director, Dorna Sports: "I think it’s interesting to create these kinds of programs in all sports, that can help young guys get into the sport and develop. Especially sports like ours, because racing is very expensive. The purpose of the team is to give riders in the Cup a goal. The target is, if they perform well in the Talent Cup, their final destination will be this supported Moto3™ team.”
Husqvarna Motorcycles have announced the introduction of their next generation fuel-injected 2-stroke enduro motorcycles.
Despite strict Euro4 compliance, the all new from the ground up 2018 TE 250i and TE 300i machines have beat the system with engine technology Husqvarna claim will revolutionise 2-stroke enduro motorcycles.
As one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturers, and the first company to ever produce a purpose-built offroad bike, Husqvarna Motorcycles have always been big supporters of 2-strokes.
From Rolf Tibblin’s first Motocross European Championship in 1959 to the golden age of motocross during the 60s and the 70s, the brand has remained a dominant force in the high-performance 2-stroke offroad segment.
Production of the new two strokes starts in June, with more info on Husqvarna’s MY18 2-stroke enduro models to be released on May 30, 2017.
