“The 2023 Yamaha bLU cRU European Championship promises to be as close fought as in previous seasons. This year we will once again have the best young talents competing over six rounds and 12 races for the championship title and the fully supported ride in WorldSSP300 that accompanies it. This season the grid is split equally between riders from Europe and riders from overseas, with entries from as far afield as Indonesia, Japan, Thailand, Brazil and Colombia. The bLU cRU European Championship is the perfect series for young riders with world championship aspirations, as the number of former bLU cRU riders now racing in WorldSSP300 illustrates clearly. I am looking forward to the season ahead and I wish the best of luck to all the youngsters racing with us this year.”
