Rev Racing Ltd is pleased to announce that it will be launching an all-new race team in 2012 which will contest all of the main British MX2 championships as well as the youth series’ with its three-rider Rev Racing Honda squad next season.
The team is aiming to become a stepping-stone between the schoolboy, youth and adult series as it offers the opportunity for young riders to really establish themselves in the adult ranks. For next season the team will field 17-year-old Anthony Reville and 19-year-old Tom Kelly in the adult MX2 class along with Honda Xtreme Academy winner 15-year-old Brad Todd in the 250cc youth series.
Rev Racing already has involvement in youth racing with the Honda Xtreme Academy and team manager Mark Reville is looking forward to developing the squad to make it more easily accessible for young talent to make the jump either onto the bigger bike or into the adult ranks with its experienced staff and without a huge cost. Mark is passionate about the sport having been involved for over 18 years and is looking forward to this new challenge with an exciting line-up of determined young guns.
“This is really an exciting time for us at Rev Racing and I’m motivated by the support we’ve already been offered,” says Mark. “Motocross is becoming an increasingly expensive sport and while the bigger teams need riders with results from the word go it’s difficult for families to subsidise the cost or know where to get the best help from as they make the step onto the bigger machines or into the adult ranks. Our plan is to steer young riders from the schoolboy championships onwards, which requires a lot of support both for rider and machine with all of the series being so competitive.
“I think we have three riders who are all capable of good results and while we are looking forward to growing as a team we are also looking to help them find the consistency and progress up through the standings throughout the season. It’s really important to us that the next generation of British talent has something to aim for – particularly those in the Honda Xtreme Academy which we are involved with at schoolboy level – and that they can see a pathway to a professional future in the sport. With the support of our partners I’m sure we can achieve this over the next few years.”
