British Talent Cup to replace Motostar as the UK’s Moto3 class from 2020

In British Talent Cup, BSB, News

BRITISH Talent Cup chiefs have revealed a new format for next season where the championship will replace the popular British Motostar series on the BSB programme.

Following an agreement reached between Dorna and  MotorSport Vision Racing (MSVR), the series will run across 10 rounds with 20 races as part of the BSB calendar.

This will become the sole British Moto3 championship series, replacing the current British Motostar Championship and be restricted to riders aged from 12 to 17.

Once again, the field will be restricted to the standard Honda NSF 250R machine, and the championship will be run across nine British Superbike Championship rounds along with a race at the British Grand Prix.

Under the provisional calendar, the season will begin with a pre-season Spanish test in March followed by races at Assen, Brands Hatch GP, Donington Park National and GP, Knockhill, Oulton Park, Silverstone National and GP, Snetterton and Thruxton.

Dorna is to remain hands-on at all events with rider coaching support and a full season in the FIM Moto3 Junior World Championship the following season will be up for grabs.

Two riders will also be given the chance to take part in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup selection event, selected by Dorna.

Prospective teams and riders can now lodge their interested by contacting MSVR via email: btc2020@msvracing.co.uk
