The Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup is a new championship for riders aged 12-20, all running Supersport 300 World Championship race-winning Yamaha R3 machinery. These youngsters will get their first opportunity to experience this highly anticipated series in the official R3 bLU cRU European Cup test at Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli” (19 March 2021).

The championship will then join WorldSBK for the season-opening round at the famous TT Circuit Assen (23-24 April), where up to 36 riders will battle it out to become the first-ever winner of the R3 bLU cRU European Cup.

After that, the series will also stop at Estoril (7-8 May), Misano (11-12 June), Donington Park (2-3 July), and Magny-Cours (3-4 September), before reaching its conclusion at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (17-18 September), where the inaugural champion will be crowned.

The overall champion will earn a place on the 2022 FIM Superport 300 World Championship grid with the WorldSSP300 bLU cRU team, providing they are over the minimum age of 15.
