BSB launch new Honda Moto3 class

1 of 1

2015 will see the addition of a new class of racing to the MCE British Superbike paddock, with the Honda Moto3 Standard class running as a race-within-a-race alongside the Motostar championship.

Using standard and unmodified Honda NSF250Rs, the series is designed to give low cost racing on Grand Prix-spec machinery, in an attempt to give British youngsters the opportunity to craft their skills on the world championship bikes.

Priced at £9995 for the bike and £3000 for the season’s entries, it creates a low cost alternative to both the production machinery-based KTM RC390 Cup and to the ultra-expensive Motostar class – where ex- Grand Prix machines worth up to £50,000 are now common.

The new class is being put together by Sigma Clutches boss and former Eurosport technical specialist Neil Spalding, who secured the low-cost deal for the machines with HRC’s Shuhei Nakamoto.
