Team Manager, Ian Soilleux remarked โ€œFred has developed into an impressive talent that we all at BD Racing have been delighted to work with. It is hard to believe that he is only 14 years old; with such a responsible head on his shoulders. We shall continue to work with Fred within the 2022 season and support him through the next chapter of his racing career within BSB and TeamVal-Tech Racing. Good luck Fredโ€.

Fred commented โ€œI am still buzzing; I think that this has to be the best Christmas present I have ever had. I am looking forward to be joining TeamVal-Tech Racing and competing in a full season at BSB on a Yamaha R3. I also cannot thank Ian Soilleux and all at BD Racing, who I have now worked with for the last 2 seasons within the BMCRC Paddock; and within whom none of this would have been possible. I wonโ€™t let you down and I am pleased that BD Racing shall still be supporting me through this next journey of my racing career.

I would also like to thank my new sponsor, RM Cycles of Tenterden, Kentโ€.

David, Fredโ€™s father responded โ€œFred has worked hard since the age of 6; starting off in Motocross. Everything Fred has done, he has thrown his heart and soul into; taking on board the highs and the lows, the praise and the criticism and seeking the rewards. Myself and Lesley wish Fred all the best in this next exciting venture and we are so pleased Fred has been giving this opportunity by TeamVal-Tech Racing. My last thank you goes to Ian Soilleux and all at BD Racing for all their help, assistance and support over the past 2 years and the forthcoming Season.

Not forgetting our long term Sponsor, Orwell Morotcycles of Ipswichโ€.

Team Announcement

Charlie Crawt #137 is stepping away from the team.

In mutual agreement, Charlie has decided to step away from the BD Racing Team.

We, at BD Racing have enjoyed working with Charlie through this estranged season (due to COVID). Charlie has decided to allow the opportunity for another rider to experience working with BD Racing.

At the final round with Bemsee at Brands Hatch GP, Charlie is bringing his beloved Minitwin out for a play and also running his NEW R6 in Thunderbike Sports.

We wish Charlie all the best for next season and look forward to catching up in the paddock in 2021.

Charlie Crawtโ€™s Statement

It has been a strange year, with the suspension of Racing due to Covid. Itโ€™s also been an absolute pleasure working with BD Racing UK.

In a mutual agreement, I have decided to step away from the Team to run my own R6 within the Thunderbike Sport Class; and also my Minitwin within the MROโ€™s.

This gives the Team space to embrace and mentor another Rider within the BD Racing Stable during the 2021 Season.

Ian and the Team work hard and their passion for Motorcycle Racing is extraordinary. It has been an absolute pleasure being part of BD Racing and I thank the Team for all their support, both on and off the Track.

See you all at Brands for the final round and I would like to wish Ian, and the Team all the best for the Future.
