After competing in the 2012 ASBK Supersport Championship, in which I finished 6th overall, I have been offered a ride to race in the UK in the 2013 600 Superstock Championship.
Moto Breakers Team has offered me a position in their 2013 line-up, HOWEVER, in the current economic environment, all riders are required to bring personalfunds to assist with expenses. The championship consists of 12 rounds which are held throughout the UK, and at this level of competition, it is not a cheap endeavour.
I will be selling my van and race bike in order to raise money for the ride, but this will still leave me well short of fulfilling the team’s fee.
Subsequently, I am setting up a Supporters Club in the hope that interested people may contribute to help make this dream a reality - the 2013 British Superstock Championship can become an experience that we can all be a part of.
Supporters Club membership is $100, but any amount would, of course, be greatly appreciated. Larger contributions could result in members having a sticker on the race bike and a patch on my race leathers. Club members will receive acknowledgement on my website, if requested. All funds will be directly used to fund the ride for 2013.
I was lucky enough to get a ride with Moto Breakers in the final round of the 2012 British Championship. After a successful time over there, the team has offered me a full-time position for next season. The team will be running two Superstock 1000’s and two Superstock 600’s. Shaun Rose, Owner of Moto Breakers is the brains behind the effort. Alan Cook (ex-Crescent Suzuki) will be crew chief for 2013, with each rider also having their own mechanic. The team has an extremely professional set up and an inspiring approach to racing. In the 2012 season, their three riders in the Superstock 600 class finished 3rd, 4th and 7th: an amazing achievement that demonstrates the high calibre of the team.
Most people realise the expenses involved in motorcycle racing: from running a bike for 12 rounds; tyres; fuel; entry fees; and so on. Moto Breakers have full facilities at the track, with a huge transporter with sleeping quarters and workshop equipment, and 2 large annexes - one for bikes and riders, and the other for hospitality. They are a very professional team and have the results to show for it. I will be learning new tracks, in a new country, with a new team, so I feel it is an advantage to be part of an established and supportive team, who also have setup information for all the tracks we will be racing at in 2013. They have outlined the expenses for the year and it is clear that this is not a money making exercise for them and that the rider fee only constitutes part of the expenses for the season, with the rest of the years’ budget being found from sponsors and the Moto Breaker’s business.
As the season is 7 months long I will be working while I’m there to cover living expenses, like accommodation and food etc.
