Albacete Circuit to host European Championship this October

Albacete Circuit to host European Championship this October

The European Championship will take place at the Albacete Circuit for the fourth consecutive year, and will be held from 8-9 October 2011.

Under the combined organisation of the UEM and the RFME, the Spanish track will be the crowning site of the 2011 European Champions in the 125GP, Supersport 600 and Superstock 1000 categories. The Junior Champion will also be uncovered from either the Supersport or Superstock classes, with potential candidates eligible up to the age of 20.

As was the case last year and in an indication of the high level of competition, the criteria for application is extremely demanding. Only riders who have finished in the top five of the national championships from the following countries will be admitted; Spain, France, Germany, Italy and Netherlands. Those who have finished in the top four of the national championships in Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and the Alpe-Adria region will also be admitted. Similar to last year the entry list will be completed by a selection of other riders selected by the organization, riders from across the world and not only Europe.

The application process closes on 23 September 2011. Entry forms can be downloaded from www.europeanchamp.com/how-to-apply.

On a technical level it should be noted that the regulations for the Supersport 600 class have had some changes compared to last year, especially with regards to tyres and ECU’s. Thanks to this regulation the class is more comparable to the majority of championships and also more cost effective for entrants.

All information on the Technical Regulations of the European Championship can be found at www.europeanchamp.com/regulations and www.uem-moto.eu., along with other important information.

The attraction of competing in the European Championship will be complemented by the incentive of more than €90,000 in prizes, which are on offer across all three categories.
