What is the R3 bLU cRU European Cup?

The Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup is a new road race series aiming to provide a path to the world stage for young riders. The Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup, a collaboration between Yamaha, FIM Europe and Dorna Sports supported by Japan Italy Racing, will be contested across 12 races at the European rounds of the 2021 FIM Superbike World Championship and will be open to riders aged between 12 and 20 years.


The Yamaha R3 bLU cRU 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 2021.
