Honda Europe has announced an NSF100 Cup Final race to be held in association with the UEM(Union Européene de Motocyclisme)in Albacete, Spain,over the weekend of 22-24 October 2010.
The NSF100 is a small racing bike manufactured by HRC (Honda Racing Corporation) and has been designed as the perfect tool to introduce younger riders aged 9-13 years to road racing.
Honda NSF championships are run in many countries within the European Region including Belgium, Finland, Italy, and Sweden. The series also runs in the South Africa, Australia and Japan.
The NSF100 Cup European Final is linked with “NSF 100 HRC Trophy Grand Championship” organized in Japan and will bring the leading riders from each championship for a one-off weekend of competition and is intended to introduce young riders to an international level of racing, with a view to finding the race champions of the future.
The NSF100 machines will be provided by Honda Italy, which runs the largest NSF series with over 40 riders, and prepared by a professional team to give competing riders a full flavour of top level race experience and engineering.
Last year many European countries participated to the successful “NSF 100 HRC Trophy Grand Championship” held in Japan, and this year some Japanese riders will race in the sister event – the European final in Albacete.

We are looking forward to seeing thew stars of tomorrow take another step towards achieving their dream of becoming pro motorcycle racers”.
