The inaugural Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup is nearly full as interest in the category comes from all around the world

With the start of the inaugural Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup fast approaching, young aspiring superbike riders still have an opportunity to register their interest, with limited spaces available as the Championship’s attention continues to grow. Aimed at riders aged 12-20 and acting as the first step on the road to WorldSBK, the highly anticipated Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup has attracted global interest and just a few of the 36 available entries are yet to be filled.  

The series will support six FIM Superbike World Championship rounds, which is preceded by the official Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup promo day and test at Misano (18-19 March), where Pata Yamaha WorldSBK Official Team riders Toprak Razgatlıoğlu and Andrea Locatelli, whilst GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Junior Team’s Garrett Gerloff will be in attendance to help the aspiring talents maximise their Yamaha R3 machinery.

Youngsters from various backgrounds have already registered, with attention stretching beyond Europe, as riders from Asia, Australia and South America, have already signed up or expressed interest. Riders who register will receive their race kit at the Misano test, while they’ll benefit from a full riding package including Pirelli tyres, fuel, coaching and technical assistance throughout the season.

The top three in the final standings will also be rewarded, with the Champion earning a spot on the 2022 FIM Superport 300 World Championship grid with the WorldSSP300 bLU cRU team, while cash prizes will also be given to individual race winners.

Riders who are interested in signing up to the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup can find out more information and register today here.
