The NSF100 European Cup Final, scheduled for October 22nd to 24th is drawing ever closer.

The motorcycle racing entry list is now full and in just about two week’s time, 36 young road racers will make the trip to Albacete, Spain to compete in the European shootout.

Honda NSF100 Championships are run in many countries within the European Region including Belgium, Finland, Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands.

The mini bike racing series also runs in South Africa, Australia and Japan. The NSF100 European Cup Final will bring together the best young riders from each country, to compete in a closely-fought shootout to determine who is the best young, two-wheel racing prospect.

The event format, which runs in conjunction with the UEM Road Racing European Championship, will comprise Free Practice on Friday, followed by Qualifying Races on Saturday for two groups (A & B).

Through qualifying, the 36 strong field will be whittled down to 18 motorcycle competitors for the European Cup Final on Sunday, where the NSF100 European Champion will be crowned.

Pride is at stake for both individual and country, so all riders will be sure to leave nothing in the garage in their quest to prove that they are the next big thing.
