Hawkers European Talent Cup and Moto2™ European Championship:
a new era begins with the FIM JuniorGP™ World Championship
A new chapter begins for the biggest and most successful path on the Road to MotoGP™ in 2022.
The FIM Moto3™ Junior World Championship becomes the FIM JuniorGP™ World Championship, recognizing its status and position as a globally vital proving ground for young riders.
The Hawkers European Talent Cup and the Moto2™ European Championship, including the Superstock category, retain their denominations under the umbrella of the FIM JuniorGP™ World Championship.
The series also gains a new identity as part of this new era, with a new logo both for the Hawkers European Talent Cup and the Moto2™ European Championship.
Over nearly a quarter of a century, JuniorGP™ has played a key role in the recognition and development of riders who have gone on to set records, including eight-time World Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team), 2020 MotoGP™ Champion Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) and 2021 MotoGP™ Champion Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP).
More than 80% of Grand Prix riders have passed through the series on their Road to MotoGP™, rising to over 90% for the Moto3™ grid. With its new name and identity, the FIM JuniorGP™ World Championship will continue fostering talent as its 25th year begins.
