| | BSB Support

Honda UK will be the title sponsor of this year’s British Talent Cup, it was announced this morning.

The cup will be one of the showcase support races when the Bennetts British Superbike Championship gets underway at Donington Park in early August. The new collaboration is fully focused on developing the stars of the future in the Road to MotoGP programme and gives the Honda British Talent Cup a new look for 2020.

The Honda British Talent Cup will not only be a fight for points on the track, but will also feature a prize fund awarded to the top 10 finishers in each race.

Series’ tyre partner Dunlop is also offering the prize of front and/or rear tyres for riders who finish on the podium, and there will be an end of season prize fund presented to the top three riders in the final overall standings.

Additionally, Dorna will select a rider from the British Isles to compete in the 2021 FIM Moto3 Junior World Championship, another step forward on the Road to MotoGP.

“We are proud to be announced as the Title Partner for this key support championship to the highly popular British Superbike race series,” said Honda honcho Neil Fletcher.

“The British Talent Cup series provides a fantastic platform for young riders to put themselves on the road to stardom with the ultimate target of racing in the MotoGP World Championship.”
