R&G British Talent Cup ready to race at Navarra!

17 April 2024

The 2024 BTC is about to begin, starting off with a season opener with a twist as the Circuito de Navarra in Spain hosts Round 1

The 2024 R&G British Talent Cup is about to get underway and it’s on pastures most definitely new for the first showdowns of the season. The Circuito de Navarra plays host for the first BSB round of 2024, with the BTC racing alongside and getting the season underway with not two, but three full-length races. That’s a huge 75-point haul on the line from the off, with the chance for someone to make their mark early.

The rider in the spotlight as the season begins has to be Amanuel Brinton (Kovara Projects/RS Racing), who finished 2023 in third overall and despite missing a round to race elsewhere. He took four wins and five second places last year, and when he finished, he was rarely beaten by any of the riders returning in 2024. He’ll just want to iron out a couple of unforced errors to almost guarantee contention for the crown.

Harley McCabe (McCabe Racing The Motorbike Buyers) was one of those able to overhaul Brinton on track though, and he’s another to watch in 2024 after finishing fourth overall last year thanks to five podiums. He didn’t take a win though, so that will be high on the agenda for the #7 in 2024. American rider Julian Correa (Microlise Cresswell Racing) finished inside the top five in 2023 too, and Filip Surowiak (Team City Lifting/RS Racing) and Ronnie Harris (Kovara Projects/RS Racing) return to the fold after winning in the final round of 2023. They’ll hope that was only a first taste of the top step.

There are a host of rookies looking to take on the established frontrunners though, and those looking to make a big step in 2024 as they gain experience. At Navarra, it’s a clean slate for everyone too as the BTC has never raced at the venue. They’ll get plenty of track time before lights out though, with two days of testing on Thursday and Friday before any points go up for grabs.

Another season on the Road to MotoGP™ is about to begin, so tune in for the first round of the 2024 R&G British Talent Cup this weekend at Navarra, with a new challenge for everyone on the grid – and an incredible 75 points up for grabs!
