Three-Round Series To Debut In 2020
IRVINE, CA – February 17, 2020 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – MotoAmerica has announced that Ohvale has been named as the official motorcycle of the MotoAmerica Mini Cup by Motul, the new three-round series that will be held at Road America, The Ridge Motorsports Park and Pittsburgh International Race Complex in conjunction with the 2020 MotoAmerica Series.
Ohvale has been named as the official motorcycle of the MotoAmerica Mini Cup by Motul.
The Mini Cup Series will feature four classes of racing: 110cc (four speed); 160cc; 190cc (racers aged up to 14 years); and 190 Adult (racers over the age of 15). The motorcycles will be based on spec rules centered around the Ohvale GP-0, a mini road racer that is now ready for the U.S. market after proving to be extremely popular in Europe.
The MotoAmerica Mini Cup fills a current void in the series and provides an entry point for riders under the age of 14. The Mini Cup will give young racers a way to bridge the gap to the MotoAmerica Liqui Moly Junior Cup class through the MotoAmerica Mini Cup and “The Road To MotoAmerica.”
“Both Rise Moto and the powers that be from Ohvale, in Italy, are very excited to be supporting the new MotoAmerica Mini Cup,” said Rise Moto Co-Founder Brandon Cretu. “We feel that for youth to get the chance to thrive in road racing, manufacturers must step up and support the sport. We’re proud to be doing just that and excited to see who comes out for this inaugural season. We have again scheduled the races for Saturday evening so not only can the fans come to watch the action on the kart track, but also the teams and riders from the main MotoAmerica classes. We have already received confirmation of many talented kids who will be racing in the series and we’re very excited to see who else turns up.”
