Stellar Weekend for the Cool FAB Racing Championship

Sarah Botha News

Round two of the 2017 Cool FAB Racing Championship took place at Red Lodge, Bury St Edmunds at the weekend.

The three-day event began on Friday 21st April with practice sessions followed by two full days of racing on Saturday and Sunday.

Fresh from his double victory in the British Superbike championship at Brands Hatch, Cool FAB Racing graduate Luke Mossey came to Red Lodge to share his top tips with the minibikes riders.

Brad Ray, who is currently the youngest rider in the British Superbike championship, and Max Cook, who is currently leading his Motostar class in the BSB, also came down to support the riders trackside and have a go in the commentator’s booth.

Crispin Vitoria, Managing Director of Cool FAB Racing, the company delivering Cool Milk’s 10-year sponsorship deal with FAB Racing, said: “It was fantastic to receive the visit of so many Cool FAB Racing alumni. Their success is inspiring for the young riders at the start of their career.

“It also goes to show that the Cool FAB Racing Minibikes championship really is the grass roots of the British Superbikes, even more so since we established an official partnership with them last year.”

The AC40 Rookie and the AC40 Pro categories were the most hotly contested at Red Lodge.

In the AC Rookie class, six-year old Ethan Sparks surprised everyone by securing a podium place in his second ever race in the championship. Harrison Crosby dominated the races though, winning all three in a row.

In the AC40 Pro class, the battle between Casey O’Gorman, Ross Maguire and Sandy Horne was fierce and in the end they each won one of the three races.

Casey O’Gorman dominated the LC40 classes with Ross Maguire on his heels. Casey was clearly on particularly good form as he also dominated the MiniGP50 class.

In the MiniGP70, the runaway winner was last year’s champion Harvey Claridge.

Crispin added: “It has been an action-packed weekend once again, on and off the track. We are seeing more and more young talent come through but we are also seeing increasing numbers of entries for the Senior Mini Motos, which is highly encouraging.”

The next round of the championship will be at Rowrah from 19th to 21st May.
