As the North America Talent Cup series spec helmet, KYT Americas will continue to offer helmet sponsorship for competitors that were accepted into the 2023 cohort and race beyond the NATC.
SEATTLE, WA, March 15, 2023 – After a successful first year, sadly the North America Talent Cup (NATC) series will not continue for 2023. The cancelation of the series is an unfortunate event for youth development road racing in the United States. The organizers of the series worked until the very end to provide a platform for young racers to compete.
KYT America’s commitment to youth development will continue, regardless of the status of the NATC series. Racers who were accepted into the 2023 cohort are eligible for KYT helmet sponsorship in any series they choose to compete.
“KYT Americas is proud to invest in young racers. We know that the future of the sport relies on developing riders,” commented Nathan Fitzgerald, KYT Americas National Sales Manager.
“As a company and a brand, we have to choose what we value more than the bottom line. Offering sponsorship to young racers who are giving 110 percent on and off track is the least we can do for them and their families. Youth development is something we highly value. Without a growing class of young racers, our industry will age out.”
Riders who qualify for the KYT sponsorship will be offered the FIM homologated NZ Race. With a lightweight tri-fiber composite shell, premium interior quality, the latest ECE certification and leading aerodynamics, the NZ Race is a direct descendent of KYT’s MotoGP™ experience.
Qualifying riders should reach out to KYT Americas for full information.
