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 Fred”.

Fred commented “I 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 won’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, Kent.

David, Fred’s father responded “Fred 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 Ipswich.
