15 year-old Briton Robbie Stewart will be joining up with the Red Bull MotoGP Academy for a weekend which is sure to hone his blossoming talent, courtesy of his winning the Dorna Academy Cup.

The Dorna Academy Cup is a youth initiative set within the races of the British 125GP Championship, with participants aged between 14 and 16 having their own internal competition based on their placings. Stewart has headed the Cup category on six occasions this season, including winning four races against the best national riders in Britain.

Stewart's prize –to get an inside look at the program set up by MotoGP commercial rights holders Dorna and run by former riders Alberto Puig and Raul Jara- will be an invaluable experience for the youngster, who will participate in his final race of 2007 on October 14th at Brands Hatch. "We have assessed Robbie's performances throughout the season, also taking note of his preparations for races and the way that he conducts himself at the various rounds, and we have been most impressed," said Tony Partis, Managing Director of Dorna UK. "We believe that he has great potential for the future and this visit to the MotoGP Academy, which has helped produce current Grand Prix riders including our own Bradley Smith, can only be of benefit to him in his chosen career."
