Eight British youngsters have been invited to the 2018 Red Bull Rookies selection event at Almeria next week.
Max Cook, Jamie Davis, Brian David Hart, Jack Hart, Jack Nixon, Scott Ogden, Lewis Paterson and Fenton Seabright are the few among a total cohort of 109 riders from 31 different nations who have been invited to assemble as they do every year for three days of track action.
Split into two lists, one for Tuesday October 17th and one for Wednesday October 18th, each rider has the chance to show their abilities. A smaller list is then compiled of those invited back for more track time on Thursday October 19th.
At the end of the three days a much smaller list of around ten riders will be invited to join the Rookies Cup for 2018 to race the KTM RC 250 Rs alongside those remaining from last season.
