KTM UK and MCE British Superbike organisers MSVR have announced that the new-for-2015 KTM RC390 Cup support series will come with an impressive prize for two lucky competitors; a coveted place at the selection event for MotoGP support series Red Bull Rookies.

Two riders, selected by former British champion and series ambassador boss Steve Plater, will get a golden ticket to the annual event in Spain, with a chance to follow in the footsteps of riders like Bradley Ray and Rory Skinner to make it onto the world stage.

The championship winner will also get an all-expenses-paid trip to compete in the opening round of 2016 in the American version of the series, which is set to run as a support series to the massively revamped MotoAmerica championship.

Plans are also afoot for a world cup final, bringing together the top riders from the American, German and British series for a head to head battle.

The series has also gained an extra round, with Cadwell Park joining the now eight round/twenty race calendar.
