Joan Mir leads Jorge Martin

World Champions Start Here – Selection Event

The lead photo says it all: 2017 Moto3 World Champion Joan Mir (36) leads 2018 Moto3 World Championship points leader Jorge Martín (88) and Moto2 World Championship campaigner Stefano Manzi (29) – Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, Brno 2014.

Never mind the fact that ex Rookie and 2016 Moto3 World Champion Brad Binder won the Moto2 race last weekend in Aragon after Martín had walked away from the Moto3 field, those guys are old news. We are looking at the new generation of Rookies Cup stars, we are looking at the Rookies Cup Selection Event at Guadix near Grenada in Spain next week, October 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

From 32 nations, from Germany to Japan from Austria to Argentina the fast teens from all over the globe assemble again for three days of track action and polyglot socialising. On each of the first two days, half the 105 strong entry get to show their skills on the new four-stroke PreMoto3 machines in front of the judging panel. Some are invited to ride again on Day 3.

The event culminates in the late afternoon of Day 3 with the reading out of a short list of names, those invited to be part of the 2019 Rookies Cup and join those continuing from this season.
