Red Bull MotoGPTM Rookies Cup

Since its inception in 2007, the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup has become one of the best stepping stones for talented youngsters, continually developing exceptional riders who then make the move to the lightweight class of the MotoGP™ World Championship. Many of the recent World Champions in Moto2™ and Moto3™ all have roots in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup – including Johann Zarco, Brad Binder and Jorge Martin.

The Rookies aims to prepare riders for elite level competition, with riders given the opportunity to race competitive KTM machinery on some of the world’s best tracks, as well as getting their first experience in the paddock they ultimately aim to race in.

Pedro Acosta flew the flag for Spain in 2020, coming out on top after a season of true domination, taking win after win and wrapping up the crown before the season finale. As he then moved to the Moto3™ World Championship and continued to impress, it was David Alonso who took the reins as the man to beat in 2021. The Colombian put together an impressive season and secured the crown at MotorLand Aragon. 2022 sees another varied and international entry list of young talent for the Rookies, with the chance to succeed Alonso on the line.
