Another crop of young hopefuls can soon apply to join next season’s British Talent Cup – giving young talent the chance to get on the Road to MotoGP. And if you think you’ve got the skills, you can get your applications in from May 18th.

One of Dorna’s key objectives is to create diverse platforms for the promotion of young riders in different countries, to ensure the development of future generations of new talented riders, who will eventually take the place of the current stars of MotoGP and WorldSBK.


The basic idea is the organisation of competitions on the same machinery for all the riders, with that machinery sharing characteristics with the bikes used in MotoGP. These are motorcycles which combine some basic mechanical, riding style and set-up features, but also allow young riders to compete at a high level. Cool right?

The selection program for the Cup will preface the 2018 British Grand Prix at Silverstone, where prospective riders will be put through their paces and the best offered the chance to join the grid for 2019 and start their journey on the Road to MotoGP.
