Yamaha Launch R3 bLU cRU FIM European Cup for Young Road Racers

Yamaha Motor Europe is pleased to announce the launch of a new road race series aimed at providing a path to the world stage for young riders. The Yamaha R3 bLU cRU FIM European Cup, a collaboration between Yamaha, FIM Europe and Dorna WSBK Organization (DWO) supported by JiR (Japan Italy Racing), will be contested across eight races at the European rounds of the 2020 FIM Superbike World Championship and will be open to riders aged between 12 and 15 years.

The Yamaha R3 bLU cRU FIM European Cup has been designed as the ideal first step for young riders with world championship aspirations. The series will be contested exclusively aboard Yamaha’s YZF-R3 machine, a race winner in the ultra-competitive FIM Supersport 300 World Championship already this season, with a grid of 36 riders from around the world expected to line up for the opening round in 2020.

The Yamaha R3 bLU cRU FIM European Cup will be a fully supported series, with riders provided with a race-ready Yamaha YZF-R3, a full riding package including Pirelli tyres, coaching and technical assistance for an inclusive cost of Euro (€) 35,000 per season, allowing them to simply turn up and race.

The series will be televised, with races also streamed live online for free. A highlights package with rider interviews and background information will also be available for free after every round.

Prize money will be awarded, with Eur (€) 10,000 for the winner of the championship, Eur (€) 7,500 for the rider placed second in the series standings at season end and Eur (€) 5,000 for the rider who finishes third overall. Each race winner will receive Eur (€) 500. In addition, the top three riders in the series at the end of the season will secure automatic entry to Yamaha Motor Europe’s bLU cRU Masterclass event, where they will compete for a supported ride for the following season.
