Congratulations to Sports Academy student Angus Grenfell, who has been invited to race the world’s best junior road racers at the 2020 Red Bull Rookies Cup selection event in Europe!
Taking place over three days at a circuit in Europe, the event gives junior riders the opportunity to showcase their skills. A select few will be chosen at the end of the cup to qualify for the 2020 Red Bull Rookies season.
Currently in its 13th season, the Red Bull Rookies Cup has a proven reputation for producing elite talent, with graduates collecting six World Championships and 95 GP wins, while 30 alumni are now competing in professional categories from Moto3 to MotoGP.
“I’m really excited about this fantastic opportunity and I can’t thank the OJC series enough for putting my name forward to go to the Red Bull Rookies selection event, and for the series for accepting me,” said Angus.
“Obviously, I want to get into the 2020 Red Bull Rookies series, but the main thing is I want to get some riding experience and simply see what it’s like to ride in Europe and what the European riders are like as well.”
We can’t wait to hear all about this amazing experience, Angus!
