The Cathedral of Speed revs up for the fourth season of the Northern Talent Cup


Get ready for another thrilling season of the Northern Talent Cup! The fourth season is set to kick off at the legendary Cathedral of Speed in Assen, racing alongside WorldSBK. With riders, teams, and fans eagerly anticipating the start of the season, the NTC promises to deliver competitive racing from start to finish as the stars of tomorrow learn their craft and take their place on the Road to MotoGP™.

The riders have already had a taste of the action in pre-season testing at Oschersleben, and it was Lennox Phommara (Team Phommara), Jurrien Van Crugten (BB64 Academy), and Matteo Masili (Fairium Next Generation Riders Team) who took the top 3 spots in the timesheets. But with Rocco Caspar Sessler (MCA Racing) and Martin Vincze (VM Racing Team) also showing impressive pace, the competition this season promises to be fierce.

Lennox Phommara, who got a race win last season, will be one to watch. Can he carry some momentum and confidence into this season, or will we see some fresh faces on the podium? With the addition of many new riders, it will be exciting to see how the field shakes up.

The first round of the NTC will have two races, with Race 1 scheduled to take place at 17:15 (GMT+2) on Saturday, followed by Race 2 on Sunday at 16:15 (GMT+2). Fans can catch all the action live on the NTC YouTube channel and across WorldSBK’s Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Twitch.
