Oceania’s next batch of Junior road-racing superstars will be given the machinery they need to shine on the track thanks to the announcement of Öhlins Racing as the official suspension supplier of the 2019 and 2020 bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup.
With the Junior Road Race Academy aimed at developing Oceania’s next road racing stars, the partnership with Öhlins proves a perfect fit for the program.
