WSBK: New European Junior Cup launched for 2011 season

Infront Motor Sports has revealed it will launch a new junior category in 2011 to compete alongside a number of World Superbike rounds in Europe.

The European Junior Cup will be open to 14 to 17 year old racers from around the world, taking place at some of the most famous and legendary racing circuits on the WSBK calendar.

Riders will compete on identical race prepared Kawasaki Ninja 250R motorcycles and will have the opportunity to display their talent in front of thousands of racing fans when they take to the track, directly before Sunday’s second World Superbike race.

The European Junior Cup package includes a race prepared Kawasaki Ninja 250 R and pit equipment; transport of motorcycle to all rounds; entry fees, tyres and fuel; riding equipment and team wear; hospitality at the Junior Cup paddock village and technical support.

To prepare the young riders as they begin their international racing careers there will be an active coaching programme throughout the season, beginning with a training camp for all participants in Guadix, Spain.

The European Junior Cup welcomes racers from a wide range of motorcycling disciplines.

Entries will be considered from all riders who have held a competition license for at least one year in either road racing, motocross, enduro, supermoto, trials or minimoto.
