The 2020 British Talent Cup will cover 10 rounds and 20 races as part of its move as the new British Moto3 series running under the Bennetts British Superbike championship.

Following the success of the opening two years of the British Talent Cup, the series increases its activities for 2020 with a greater presence on the BSB support class programme.

Nine of the 10 rounds will take place during BSB race weekends with the one-off at the British MotoGP round at Silverstone.

The 2020 season gets underway with testing at Jerez on 1-2 March before the opener at Silverstone’s National circuit with BSB. All riders will get to grips with the standard Honda NSF 250R machine in the single-make series.

The British Talent Cup, which effectively replaces the British Motostar series, will become a key part of the BSB support classes at nine out of 12 rounds, including a season-finale at Donington Park’s GP circuit on 2-4 October.

The series will also be part of the support class programme at the British MotoGP on 28-30 August.

All rounds will host a double-header of racing action to create a 20-race season which will mark the British Talent Cup’s biggest-ever campaign.

Dorna will stay hands-on at all events with rider coaching support while standout riders will be potentially offered a full season in the FIM Moto3 Junior World Championship for the following year.

Two riders will also be given the opportunity to join the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup selection event.
