WSBK launches European Junior Cup

Infront Motor Sports launches new European championship for 14-17-year-olds, riding Kawasaki 250 motorcycles at select WSBK events.
World Superbike Championship organiser's Infront Motor Sports have announced the formation of a new 'European Junior Cup', providing young riders with a first stepping stone towards SBK stardom.

Open to 14 to 17 year old racers from around the world, the European Junior Cup will take place at six circuits during 2011. Riders will compete on identical race-prepared Kawasaki Ninja 250R motorcycles.

Entries will be considered from all riders who have held a competition license for at least one year in either road racing, motocross, enduro, supermoto, trials or minimoto.

An active coaching programme will take place throughout the season, beginning with a training camp for all participants in Guadix, Spain, before the first round of the series is held at Assen on April 15-17.

The European Junior Cup package, which is similar to the Red Bull Rookies Cup in MotoGP, includes:

* Race prepared Kawasaki Ninja 250 R and pit equipment.
* Transport of motorcycle to all rounds.
* Entry fees, tyres and fuel.
* Riding equipment and team wear.
* Hospitality at the Junior Cup paddock village.
* Technical support.
* Race coaching from star riders.
* Pre-season training camp in Spain.

The listed price for entry is 18,950 Euros (plus VAT where applicable).

Great value especially when you get to keep the bike and your riding gear at the end of the season. The Kawasaki Ninja 250R is a twin cylinder four stroke bike with uprated suspension, full race exhaust system, rear sets, etc. Price include hospitality, bike transport and plenty of other support. Bargain!
