North America Talent Cup: 2023 Season Cancelled

The 2023 North America Talent Cup (NATC), an official Road to MotoGP program, has been cancelled due to a lack of entries for the season, according to Brandon Cretu, CEO of Rise Moto, which ran NATC on behalf of Dorna.

“I can confirm that the North America Talent Cup has been cancelled for 2023 due to lack of entries,” Cretu posted February 28 on the WERA BBS, a popular motorcycle road racing forum. “The series received a lot of direct support from the FIM. Without enough entries, that support was not justified anymore, so I could no longer afford to run the series on my own with the limited sponsorship I had available.”

A contributing factor to the lack of participation may have been FIM raising the minimum age to participate in the 2023 NATC series from 13 to 14 years old, which is the same minimum age limit to compete in the MotoAmerica Junior Cup.

The first round of the 2023 NATC series was scheduled to have been held April 14-16 at Circuit of The Americas during the Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas MotoGP event.

A more formal announcement is believed to be in the works.
