The Yamaha YZF-R3 European single-brand championship is open to all!

The Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup will see many riders competing at the same level, in a class that year-by-year will be the breeding ground of future world champions.

Even if a rider has little previous experience, no team, or no bike, the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup is suitable for riders coming from minor classes, wishing to scale the racing ladder to the World SSP 300 series. For 2019, it’s expected that many riders will want to take part in the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup, being backed by an organization with long experience in the racing and with the ability to support the riders and teams all the way.

Like the World SSP 300 series, riders in the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup will get two hours practice time per event and the championship will be composed of a series of seven races on well-known tracks as Jerez de la Frontera (Spain), Portimao (Portugal), Pannonia-Ring (Hungary), Most (Czech Republic) and such tracks as Varano (Italy), Ring Knutstorp (Sweden) and Alès (France).

The challenges of each of these tracks will have to be met by the riders. The formula of the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup consists of giving international level racing with accessible costs, and to concentrate competition to a one-day event during weekends.

Registrations for the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup are now open and the first applications have come from Greece and Indonesia, with one event entry from as far afield as New Zealand. This indicates the growing popularity of the series and some riders are registering for the event at Portimao, in preparation for their race in the World SSP 300 series.

International partners are also on board, including FIM Europe, Yamaha Motor Europe and Dunlop as well as JVC-Kenwood for the radio communication and dash-cam on-board of each Yamaha YZF-R3. Kyocera will also be the official document solutions provider and Tinazzi experience will be enjoyed in the hospitality area reserved to the guests.

We believe sport should give a challenge to all!
