After a huge success in its previous edition, with teams from 17 countries and an increase of 40% participation, MotoStudent 2019-2020 is back.

The registration period for teams opens from 28th January until 30th April 2019. For the first time the number of vacancies is limited.

The 6th edition of MotoStudent, the largest international university competition of motorcycles in the world is already under way. This new 2019-2020 edition is heir to the successful edition that saw its closing ceremony at the MotorLand circuit in Alcañiz, (Teruel, Spain) last October. In that edition over 74 teams from 17 countries and 3 continents took part, a rise of 40% over the preceding 2016 edition.

It has been made public that the registration for teams wishing to take part in the 6th MotoStudent edition is to be available through between the 28th January and 30th April 2019. It must be highlighted that, on this occasion, the number of vacancies available will be limited. Those interested must write down those dates and hurry to register so as not to be left out of this competition, gathering engineering students from all over the world. It will be down to them to design competition motorbikes, build them from common elements and eventually, test them on the racetrack. All this process will take place over a three month period, in Spring 2019 and Autumn 2020.

Although culminating in a motorcycle race, MotoStudent is much more. Promoted by Moto Engineering Foundation and TechnoPark MotorLand, it is an immense international challenge for hundreds of young people who are to develop a project in which, as prospective specialised technicians and engineers, they will apply the knowledge gained over their studies. They will also develop their creativity and innovative skills, ranging from the actual implementation of a business plan applied to the industrial sector, to the building of competition motorcycles under regulations inspired by Moto3 FIM. All this while competing against qualified rivals under set regulations and within a set time-framework.

MotoStudent is supported by the major brands of the motorcycling industry. In addition, the competition is a key initiative to foster training and research into a highly competitive industry experiencing constant technological innovation. It provides a real opportunity to gear students towards a career in the field, as testify participants of previous editions currently working in the competition arena (MotoGP, Formula 1 or WorldSBK) or in the development departments of major motor companies, as well as the numerous start-ups stemming from MotoStudent which are successfully working their way up in the market.

The impact of the competition has reached 150 countries, with visits, both to the website ( or its own social networks, in the hundreds of thousands, and increasing.
