Apply for The British Talent Cup

Young riders in the British Isles can now sign up to be part of the all-new British Talent Cup in 2018 – with registration open until June 18th

The British Talent Cup is set to become a reality in 2018, designed as the perfect stepping-stone for riders from the British Isles to get onto the world stage – and applications are now open!

Providing an opportunity like no other for young talent to progress on the Road to MotoGP™, most races will take place at existing Dorna-run events – such as MotoGP™ and MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship weekends – and the riders will race on Honda NSF250R Moto3™ machinery.

On board with the Cup are world-renowned talent scout Alberto Puig and British racing legend Jeremy McWilliams, providing an incredible structure for young riders from the British Isles to get the best possible start to their careers.

The British Talent Team is the presence of this project on the world stage, in the FIM Moto3™ World Championship – the last stop on the Road to MotoGP™ that could begin today by registering to be part of the British Talent Cup. Some high performance riding experience is required, but there is no specific minimum level of road racing experience.

This first ever selection program for the Cup will preface the 2017 British Grand Prix at Silverstone, where prospective riders will be put through their paces and the best offered the chance to race in the Cup’s inaugural 2018 season.
