CEV: Dorna launch European one-make series

MotoGP organisers Dorna have launched a one-make European series designed to develop young talent, building successfully on their work in Asia with the Honda Asia Talent Cup series. The new class will run alongside the Spanish-based FIM CEV championship.

The new class will use Honda NSF250 machines, with limited modifications – working on a similar model to the standard sub-class that already runs within the British Motostar series on a domestic basis.


Dorna are also making available 17 ex-ATC machines for riders looking to compete in the class, asking only for €4200 for the machines with a €5000 deposit returnable if the teams compete in the whole eight-round season.

With the CEV Moto3 championship now classified as a junior world title, the new series is aimed to give youngsters a chance to move into that series, creating a clear progression path from age 13 through European Talent Cup to MotoGP, via CEV, Moto3, and Moto2.

It also provides a somewhat easier stepping off point than the ultra-competitive Red Bull Rookies Cup series that currently acts as a feeder class for Moto3, with this year seeing ten riders trying out for every available space in that class.
