Cool FAB Racing has formed a new partnership with the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship to encourage more young people to get involved in motorcycle racing.
Seven BSB teams have agreed to set up junior teams to compete in the Cool FAB Racing British Minibikes Championship, now an official BSB partner series, helping to develop and support the BSB stars of the future.
These are: Tyco BMW, Quattro Plant Kawasaki, Anvil Hire TAG Yamaha, Buildbase BMW, ePayMe Yamaha, Team WD-40 and Moto Rapido Ducati.
Crispin Vitoria, Managing Director of Cool Motor Racing, the company delivering Cool Milk’s 10-year sponsorship deal with FAB Racing, said: “We have some really talented young riders competing in the Cool FAB Racing British Minibikes Championship already, and by becoming an official BSB partner series, we will be able to provide an infrastructure that will encourage more youngsters to enter the sport.
“By creating strong links between the grassroots and the very top of the sport, including the BSB riders themselves, we are able to inspire and nurture talented young riders.
“Cool FAB Racing will also provide training in safety, media training as well as racing technique, enabling those with the ability to go on to compete at a higher level.”
MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship Series Director Stuart Higgs added: The work of Cool FAB Racing is tremendously important in providing an environment for children to participate in motorcycle racing. They of course are the stars of the future and to make connection with BSB and the teams is a great initiative.”
Cool FAB Racing has long played an active role in developing young British talent. BSB rider Luke Mossey, MotoGP rider Scott Redding, 2015 Moto3 World Champion Danny Kent and current Hel Performance British Motostar championship leader Charlie Nesbitt are all graduates of the championship.
