British Talent Cup
The all-new British Talent Cup began in 2018, designed as the perfect stepping-stone for riders from the British Isles to get onto the world stage and providing an opportunity like no other for young talent to grow and progress on the Road to MotoGP™. 23 riders lined up in the first season to fight for the title of first ever British Talent Cup Champion and another grid do battle in 2019.
The riders in the BTC, aged between 12 and 17, are all handpicked from aspiring hopefuls at the British Talent Cup selection events ahead of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Racing on Honda NSF250R Moto3™ machinery, the competition is close and two races per weekend maximise the chance for riders to learn and hone their skills as they race on some of the biggest stages possible alongside MotoGP™, WorldSBK and BSB.
The Cup is run by Dorna, the organisers of the MotoGP™ World Championship and the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, as well as co-organiser of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, and is intended to discover the most talented young riders in the British Isles. 2018 frontrunner Max Cook is the first BTC alumnus to move up on the Road to MotoGP™, racing in the Junior Talent Team in the FIM CEV Repsol Moto3™ Junior World Championship this season.
