Red Bull Rookies goes four-stroke for 2013

New four-stroke Moto3 KTMs for 2013 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.
The 2013 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup will see the latest generation of rising stars doing battle on four-stroke KTM machinery.

Created as a twin to KTM's 2013 factory Moto3 machine, the Rookies KTM 250 RBR (pictured) should perfectly prepare riders for the step into grand prix racing.

Graduating Rookies have firmly established themselves in grand prix with the likes of Danny Kent, Luis Salom, Jakub Kornfeil and Arthur Sissis fighting for glory every weekend.

Ex Rookies Cup Champion Johann Zarco also recorded four pole positions and eleven podiums - including a win - in the 125 GP category before stepping up to Moto2 for 2012.

The competition to follow in their footsteps has never been hotter with Florian Alt, Scott Deroue and Phillip Oettl leading this year's charge with five races remaining.

The online application system is open for the 2013 Cup

Sad that the strokers are disappearing off the face of the racing earth. After watching the start of the Motostar race at Oulton the other week, I realised how big a loss the tiddlers will be. Such a great sound and a lovely smell with it. The Moto3 bike that was in the race sounded like a flat wet fart in comparison.

The dumbest thing about the changeover to four strokes is the way that the powers that be have now rewritten history. They have claimed on several occasions that prior to 2002 GP500 was a class for two strokes. The rules never stipulated two strokes only, the simple fact was that by the mid seventies four strokes could no longer compete. Even when Honda tried they couldn't manage it.
