Please read all the pages in the Road to Rookies Cup Section including the INSTRUCTIONS section and this section covering the rules so that you fully understand the programme.

Then fill in the APPLICATION FORM with your details and you will start on the Road. Through this year we will learn more about you and follow your motorcycling development. You will provide us with details of the races and championships you are competing in this season. We are not only interested in dedicated road racers, those who ride dirt bikes may also be developing the riding skills that translate into success on tarmac.

After filling out the APPLICATION FORM we will wish to see race and championship results through the 2017 racing year so that we can see the progress the Applicant is making. These results should be scanned and emailed to the Cup coordinator.

If our panel of experts believes that you may have what it takes then you will be invited to the Selection Event later in the year.

At the Selection Event you will have the chance to show your riding ability on the track at a road race circuit somewhere in Europe.
