Visitors to round 7 at Red Lodge (7th to 9th October) will also get to meet special guest British Supersport rider Andy Reid.

Crispin Vitoria, Managing Director of Cool Motor Racing, which runs the series, said it’s going to be an exciting weekend: “We’ve got so much happening at Red Lodge – it’s going to be one of the biggest meetings of the year! Since we became an Official BSB Partner Series in July, the championship has really stepped up a gear and we’ve now got the support of some of the biggest names in the world of British Superbikes who are all looking forward to seeing their teams race next year.

“We can’t wait to see all of the branded minibikes together for the first time and of course seeing all of our riders back in action after a seven-week break. As we go into the final rounds the competition is starting to get tough with just a few points separating the riders at the top of the tables.”
