The inaugural 2020 Husqvarna and KTM 690 Cup is all set to go for a season Warm Up on the 14th March 2020.
Created in partnership between NoraSport and Supermoto UK the idea was born out of the ever increasing number of 701 Husqvarna and 690 KTM's attending trackdays. The enthusiasm of those taking part set alight the potential to introduce an introduction / production class within the 2020 British Supermoto Championship.
Liaising with Race Director David Dearden, the consensus was that the series should be made both cost effective and fun for all taking part, plus all tarmac events to encourage those with no dirt off road experience.
Combine this with a friendly paddock full of helpful people who will guide first time competitors through the first steps onto a race circuit, including signing on, scrutineering and of course be there for questions during the day.......you will never feel alone in the British Supermoto Paddock..!
