The ADAC is further expanding the promotion of young talent in the ADAC Northern Europe Cup for the 2017 season. In conjunction with MotoGP™ rights holder, Dorna Sports, two young talents from the ADAC NEC will be given the chance to compete in the FIM Moto3™ Junior World Championship at Spanish racetracks in Aragon and Valencia.
The 2017 ADAC NEC season will draw to a close on the 1st of October in Assen, the Netherlands, after eleven races, but the racing season will continue for the two most talented riders in the series, as Dorna Sports will be supporting two of these young talents to make it possible for them to participate at the final two rounds of the FIM Moto3™ Junior World Championship.
The last two meetings of the FIM Moto3™ Junior World Championship will take place on the weekend of 6th - 8th October at Motorland Aragon and from 17th to 19th November at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia. There, the world's best young riders compete at well-known grand prix circuits to prepare themselves for a possible career in MotoGP™.
Thanks to ADAC and Dorna Sports, the two most talented ADAC NEC riders will get the chance to compete on highly competitive KTM motorbikes in Kiefer Racing's very experienced world championship squad, and demonstrate their skill.
Hermann Tomczyk, ADAC Sports President: "The chance for riders from the ADAC Northern Europe Cup to have wildcards in the FIM Moto3™ Junior World Championship is the icing on the cake as far as our promotion of young riders in motorcycle racing goes, and we are very pleased to be receiving Dorna's support. We can now offer talented juniors a direct route into the world championship."
Carmleo Ezpeleta, CEO Dorna Sports: "It makes us very proud to add another link in our Road to MotoGP™ programme with our involvement in the ADAC Northern Europe Cup, and to support more young talent. The young riders of today are the future of our sport and an important investment."
Alberto Puig, Talent Promotion Director: "The ADAC Northern Europe Cup is another fantastic opportunity for youngsters to get a start in the world of road racing. Whether from Germany or further afield in Europe, finding and fostering talent is a cornerstone of the continued and future success of motorcycle racing - something we are proud to be part of."
