Triumph is urging aspiring champions to enter its Young Guns talent scheme before the 13 May deadline. Launched to turn promising young riders into the UK’s racetrack stars of tomorrow the scheme, known as Triumph Young Guns, is open to all amateur ACU-licensed riders (aged between 15 and 23), regardless of the make or type of bike they currently ride.
Applicants to the Young Guns scheme will be assessed by a panel of judges including race legend Frankie Chili, the bike media and senior management from Triumph, to select 10 lucky riders, who will be coached during the 2011 season. As part of the selection and mentoring, a number of tailored training sessions will take place over the year, focusing on issues such as personal fitness, racecraft and marketing/promotion.
The scheme will culminate at the final round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship season finale at Brands Hatch on 7-9 October, where three chosen finalists will take part in the last Metzeler National Superstock 600 races of the year. The overall winner of Triumph Young Guns 2011 will be chosen based on their conduct over the year and their performance at Brands Hatch.
The deadline for entries to Triumph Young Guns is Friday May 13, 2011. Get an application form here
