“Thanks to all our partners in helping to get the bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup off the ground, we now have a road racing academy to help the younger generations to go all the way to world championship competition, if that’s where they want to head in the future. With the Oceania Junior Cup, you simply turn up and go racing. In the process you learn everything you need to know to succeed in the sport. So, I encourage all riders to apply.”
Supported by the FIM and endorsed by Dorna’s Road to MotoGP program, the OJC has a clear progression plan for it riders to feature in the Idemitsu Asia Talent Cup and the Red Bull Rookies Cup.
