The Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup is a new championship for riders aged 12-20, all running FIM Supersport 300 World Championship race-winning Yamaha R3 machinery. The series will support six FIM Superbike World Championship rounds, with the riders getting their first taste of the championship in the official R3 bLU cRU European Cup promo day and test at Misano (18-19 March), as they begin their Road to WorldSBK.
At that test, Pata Yamaha WorldSBK Official Team riders Toprak Razgatlıoğlu and Andrea Locatelli, as well as GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Junior Team’s Garrett Gerloff will be in attendance to help the young rookie riders realise their full potential aboard the Yamaha R3.
The registration deadline for the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup has been extended to 10 January 2021 to give riders a chance to seal sponsorship deals ahead of the new season. Riders from 14 countries are already signed up, with a range of ages represented on the current entry list. This brand-new series has not only attracted attention from within Europe though, as riders from Brazil, Colombia and New Zealand have applied for entries, while youngsters from Australia and Cambodia have also expressed interest.
These riders will receive their race kit of helmet, leather suit, gloves, boots and Paddock Blue apparel at the Misano test, before familiarising themselves with the Yamaha R3 ahead of the first race of the 2021 campaign.
