BMP announced today that the 2002 Junior Superstock Championship will continue to run next season to the existing MCRCB technical regulations as a National championship and that an agreement has been concluded with Yamaha Motor UK for this championship to be replaced by a one-make series in 2003 and 2004.

As a forerunner to the new Yamaha R6 Junior Cup, Yamaha Motor UK will be introducing bonus awards and other incentive schemes for riders purchasing and racing the Yamaha YZF-R6 model in the 2002 multi-make National Junior Superstock Championship, details of which will be confirmed at the forthcoming International Motorcycle Show, held at the NEC, Birmingham from 8 November.

The 2002 National Junior Superstock Championship is open to riders who must be over 16 and under 23 years of age on 1 March 2002. The championship will continue to be run at all 13 rounds of the 2002 British Superbike Championship and will benefit from television coverage.

There will again be a control tyre and silencer for the 2002 championship, details of which will be announced in due course, together with the generous overall prize fund allocation.

The championship is aimed at young riders with limited experience who should not have more than three years race experience and hold an ACU Full Clubmans licence or a national road race licence issued by a member of the EU.

Therefore to ensure next year's championship targets new talent, the top five finishers in the 2001 British Junior Superstock Championship are not eligible to re-enter nor are riders who have finished in the top 10 of a MCRCB British Championship.
