BSB: British Superbikes to support minibike series
The MCE British Superbike championship has announced a new partnership with Cool Fab Racing to encourage more young people to get involved in bike racing.
The agreement sees seven British Superbike teams – Tyco BMW, Quattro Plant Kawasaki, Anvil Hire TAG Yamaha, Buildbase BMW, ePayMe Yamaha, Team WD40 and Moto Rapido Ducati – set up junior teams to compete in the Cool FAB Racing British Minibikes series.
FAB Racing has long played a role in developing young talent, with the likes of Grand Prix stars Scott Redding and Danny Kent all graduates of the programme as well as British Superbike podium man Luke Mossey.

Crispin Vitoria, Managing Director of Cool Motor Racing, the company delivering Cool Milk’s 10-year sponsorship deal with FAB Racing, said: “We have some really talented young riders competing in the Cool FAB Racing British Minibikes Championship already, and by becoming an official BSB partner series, we will be able to provide an infrastructure that will encourage more youngsters to enter the sport.
“By creating strong links between the grassroots and the very top of the sport, including the BSB riders themselves, we are able to inspire and nurture talented young riders.
“Cool FAB Racing will also provide training in safety, media training as well as racing technique, enabling those with the ability to go on to compete at a higher level.”
BSB Series Director Stuart Higgs added: The work of Cool FAB Racing is tremendously important in providing an environment for children to participate in motorcycle racing. They of course are the stars of the future and to make connection with BSB and the teams is a great initiative.”
