Prospective competitors can now apply to join the 2023 grid until the 31st of December
Applications for the 2023 Northern Talent Cup are now open! Prospective teams and riders can apply to join the grid until the 31st of December, with registration now open at northerntalentcup.com. Riders from all nationalities can apply, but the NTC aims to discover talent from across northern and central Europe. The NTC's record speaks for itself, with a number of alumni having already graduated into the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup on the next step on the Road to MotoGP™.
In the fourth season of the NTC in 2023, the grid will be limited to 26 entrants. Riders must be born between January 1st, 2004, and February 28th, 2009, to be a minimum age of 14 before the first round. Riders from different racing backgrounds can apply, with no road racing experience necessary as other disciplines can also translate into road racing success.
Individual riders can apply, but they must also choose a Team Name and have a Team Manager. Riders must also have at least one mechanic and a legal guardian.
Any Team Application should specify a Team Manager, who will be the main contact with the organisation, and the team can comprise a rider and two mechanics. Mechanics can also be family members or acquaintances.
Applications open: 1st October 2022
Application deadline: 31st December 2022
Confirmation of full time riders: 20th January 2023
