THE winner of this year’s Kawasaki Team Green Junior Cup will receive a supported ride in the 2019 British Junior Supersport Championship, Bemsee chiefs have revealed.
The BMCRC and Kawasaki will offer this year’s champion the opportunity to move up to the fledgling British series by setting the rider up with a race-ready Kawasaki Ninja 400, and covering the cost of the series entry fees.
This season will be the seventh year of the leading junior series ran at Bemsee events, and in recent months it’s been thrown well and truly into the spotlight following the news a British series was being launched as part of the British Superbike Championship support programme this year.
It means the Bemsee series is now the perfect training ground for any young rider looking to make the step up to the British series in the future.
Ideal for new and novice riders, the championship offers a lot of track time at leading UK tracks including Silverstone, Brands Hatch, Donington Park, Cadwell Park and Snetterton, and riders are also given mentoring and coaching to help them take their first steps into racing.
For riders like this year’s champion Charlie Farrer, it’s this help which sets the series apart from others, as dad Noel told UK Clubsport.
“The help and support we’ve had from Bemsee has been great, particularly for us as we were completely new to all of this when Charlie started racing,” he said. “We didn’t know anyone, we had no clue about the racing world at all and they’ve been great.
“They’ve helped Charlie so much, and since he won the championship, they’ve kept in touch and are still offering support where they can.”
There is also a full parts, suspension and technical support service for riders at each round, which means parents don’t have to be experience mechanics, and the series is now likely to become the feeder class for the British series, with riders now able to see new route for progression.
The supported ride prize will be in addition to the £10,000 total prize fund previously announced for the championship this year.
