“Our aim is to inspire and nurture talented young riders and provide an infrastructure that will encourage more youngsters to enter the sport,” explained Crispin. “Becoming an Official BSB Partner Series was an important step towards that and now we’re encouraging the leading teams, like Halsall Racing Team, to bring their brand into the mini-moto world.

“They provide a fantastic opportunity for our youngsters to be inspired and learn from those at the very top level of the sport and we are very grateful for their support.

“Cool FAB Racing has long played an active role in developing young British talent with the likes of Luke Mossey, Scott Redding, Danny Kent, Brad Ray and Charlie Nesbitt all coming through the sport and with the teams’ help and the support of British Superbikes, we hope that we can produce even more future champions.”
