Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, El Salvador, Panama, Costa Rica, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, and Argentina will be among the countries represented in both the FIM MiniGP Latin America Series and the Latin America Talent Cup for the MotoGPTM World Cup. The riders that will compete in each tournament will be chosen by 20 federations from around Latin America. Latin America Talent Showcase:
The normal Latin America Talent Cup schedule will have six rounds of 12 races. Riders will range in age from 14 to 21, with a grid size of 25.
The competition will begin near the end of 2023, when the first round coincides with WorldSBK’s expected return to San Juan Villicum in Argentina, and the calendar will then follow its future schedule as it continues into 2024, with the first round of the season scheduled for March at the Autodromo Internacional de Codegua in Chile at the MotoGPTM World Cup. The Cup then travels to Argentina to compete with MotoGPTM at Termas de Rio Hondo, before returning to Brazil for two rounds at the Autódromo Internacional Ayrton Senna in Goiânia and the Circuito dos Cristais in Curvelo.
The top three riders of the Latin America Talent Cup will be invited to compete in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Selection Event at the MotoGPTM World Cup. The Latin America Talent Cup winner will also be promoted to the SSP300 class in the CIV (Italian national championship) as a member of the GP3 AD11 squad.
Latin America MiniGP Series
The FIM MiniGP Latin America Series will commence in 2023 and will include 15 riders aged 10 to 14 riding on equal Ohvale GP-0 160 equipment, in accordance with the standards for inclusion in the FIM MiniGP World Series.
From March through October, there will be five events spread over three countries: Argentina, Brazil, and Chile at the MotoGPTM World Cup.
The 190cc FIM MiniGP Latin America Series will debut in 2025, offering a stepping stone for those who competed in the first year of the 160cc Series as well as a connection between entry level and the following levels on the Road to MotoGPTM World Cup. The top riders from the 2023 FIM MiniGP Latin America Series will be promoted to the 190cc Series, and the best riders from the 190cc Series will be promoted to the Latin America Talent Cup.
GP3 Sport will serve as promoter for both the Latin America Talent Cup and the FIM MiniGP Latin America Series, in partnership with FIM Latin America and as part of Dorna’s Road to MotoGP. They will also have the help of current WorldSBK rider and riding coach Leandro “Tati” Mercado.
“FIM Latin America is constantly looking for the greatest ideas to enhance motorcycling in the area,” says Pedro Venturo, President of FIM Latin America. It gives us great joy and happiness to see these initiatives become a reality for Latin America, and we are certain they will benefit riders across the region.”
“We couldn’t be happier with this initiative,” says GP3 Sport’s Antonio D’Angelo. We’ve been working on this for a long, to be able to bring together 20 various nations from Latin America, allowing riders the opportunity to compete equitably and providing numerous possibilities to enable them to reach the highest levels of motorcycle racing. It’s one-of-a-kind. We will be able to give all of the essential resources to develop and grow Latin American riders with the aid of Dorna and FIM Latin America.”
“We’re happy to see the Road to MotoGP extend into Latin America, introducing a new area to the programme and offering an extraordinary opportunity for thousands of young riders,” said Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports. Our goal with the Road to MotoGP is to make our sport as accessible as possible, and we’re excited to sponsor and expand this one-of-a-kind initiative in racing. We look forward to seeing the Latin America Talent Cup and FIM MiniGP Latin America series add such a vital rung to our global ladder.”
