Junior Production Cup
New for 2023
We are looking at running a Junior Freetech Cup for 10 to 14 year olds
These races will be separate from the current Freetech Endurance/Sprint races.
This age group now has been left in a deep hole as the age limit has been increased for Moto3.
The concept is to give young British racers tracktime on UK and European race tracks to prepare themselves for British Talent Cup.
Once the championship is up and running the winner will be supported by Freetech into the British Talent Cup. This will be done by the use of various racing brands and a framework to see the very best excel as they progress from Freetech to British championship and hopefully MotoGP.
Freetech founder, Hudson Kennaugh, was lucky enough to come through a similar program with a Suzuki and it is a formula that works.
Pre-season fitness training
This is a great place to add a tagline.
In association with Storme CrossFit Ashby, we invited our 2023 Junior Talent Cup racers to a pre-season fitness training day with tips and guidance from Red Bull Rookies Cup and Junior GP World Championship racer Eddie O'Shea and current Superstock 600 National Champion and 2023 British Superbike Championship rider Max Cook.
