Albacete circuit to stage 2010 European Championship

Albacete circuit to stage 2010 European Championship

The European Championship, in its new format of a single event, will return to the Albacete circuit for the third consecutive year taking place on the 23rd and 24th of October 2010.

Under the joint organisation of the UEM and the RFME, the 2010 European Championship in the 125GP, Supersport 600 and Superstock 1000 categories will all be decided at the Spanish circuit. In the latter two classes a Junior Champion will also be crowned, with those under 20 years of age being eligible.

As displayed by last year’s exceptionally high level of competition, the criteria for participation is extremely demanding.

Participating riders must have finished inside the top five of the following National Championships to be able to take part; Spain, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. A top four classification in either the Scandinavian, Balkan or Alpe Adria trans-national Championships also permits entry. Six wild card entries, selected by the competition organisers, will also take part.

Applications are already available at www.europeanchamp.com, with a deadline for admittance set at October 4th.

Aside from the prestige and experience of taking part in the new format European Championship there is a huge financial incentive this year, with a combined prize money total of more than €90,000 across all three categories.
