AUSTRALIAN SUPERBIKE CHAMPIONSHIP

OCEANIA JUNIOR CUP

Motorcycling Australia (MA) is thrilled to announce a game changing Junior Road Race Academy that is set to take the region by storm! Making its Australian Road Racing debut in 2019 is the bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup, a phenomenal all-inclusive program for young aspiring junior riders from all nations. The program has officially been named a Road to MotoGP™ program with the support of Dorna Sports S.L.

 

The Oceania Junior Cup is a Junior Road Race Academy aimed at developing Oceania’s next road racing stars. It will provide young riders with everything they need to take to the track, opening the pathway to the next generation racers through an exciting experience. The belief in the program is so strong that FIM are supporting the Oceania Junior Cup for multiple years through FIM Oceania.

 

Dorna Sports S.L, are the commercial rights holders and promoters of MotoGP™, the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup and British Talent Cup. Dorna has also co-organized the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup since its inception in 2007. Their endorsement is a significant development and adds the bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup to the esteemed list of Dorna Road to MotoGP™ programs around the world.

 

The Dorna commitment provides five guaranteed positions in the 2019 Asia Talent Cup Selection Event for riders from the bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup, and cements MA’s objective to develop clear pathways for junior road racers in the Oceania region. Additionally, selected riders from the Oceania Junior Cup will be provided the opportunity of entering the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Selection Event in 2019.

 

“For Dorna to endorse the Oceania Junior Cup under the Road to MotoGP program is an exciting opportunity for all involved and adds a substantial level of credibility to what we are trying to achieve,” explained Peter Goddard, MA President. “Such an important partnership cements the key criteria of the program, creating a clear progression plan between the Oceania Junior Cup and the world stage. The development of the next World Champion from our region has received a huge boost today.”

 

A stunningly high percentage of riders across MotoGP™, Moto2™ and Moto3™ classes came from the various Road to MotoGP™ programmes, with every permanent rider in the Moto3™ World Championship now having raced in a series on the Road to MotoGP™.

 

“We are delighted to welcome another series to our Road to MotoGP program,” adds Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta. “The Road to MotoGP is going from strength to strength and has an incredibly successful record in finding and promoting talent. The bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup will be an asset to the program and perfectly complements our aims for the Oceania region. We’re excited to begin this new collaboration.”

 

The response from MA and Motorcycling New Zealand (MNZ) members has been phenomenal, with the program over subscribed and applications coming in from nearly every discipline of motorcycle racing as young riders seek an opportunity to be involved.

 

Since the official announcement about the bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup back in September, the new junior road racing academy has caught the attention of leading industry partners and former Australian world champions.

 

The backing of Dorna S.L to assist young riders from Oceania through the Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup and Red Bull Rookies Cup continues the support provided by the Motorcycling Australia, Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) and FIM Oceania, the regional representatives of the FIM

 

Featuring as part of the ASBK Championship (5 rounds) and MotoStars Championship (1 Round), the six round Oceania Junior Cup will kick off at the 2019 Official ASBK Test before following a nationwide program around the country.

 

As a truly interactive development academy, those participating will be coached by former MotoGP superstar, Damian Cudlin, developing their riding styles while gaining a truly unique insight into the art of race craft. In addition, off track activities will include media and PR development and a focus on developing the true value of good sportsmanship.
