Lewis will also be part of the Vision Track Michael Laverty Academy for 2021, gaining valuable knowledge from his mentor and fellow Northern Ireland rider Michael Laverty.
2021 will see WM Racing take part in British Talent Cup with Peter Willis in his rookie year alongside the experienced British Talent Cup rider Rossi Dobson.
Rossi Dobson finished his rookie year at British Talent Cup with an impressive 17th position overall and a highest placed finish of 7th. Going into 2021 season, Rossi has been preparing physically over the winter to prepare himself for the fast and furious nature of British Talent Cup. Rossi aim this season is to be challenging for podiums at each round.
Peter Willis will enter his rookie year at British Talent Cup. Finishing runner up in the 140cc British MiniGP Championship in 2020, he is ready to step up to the Moto3 British Talent Cup class. This will be a big learning curve for Peter this year, learning a new bike and tracks. With his goal set to try and collect points at each round this year, he’s looking forward to the challenge.
Irish Minibikes Championship is where it all starts for young Irish talent and Paige Mullen is no stranger to the paddock. In only her second year of racing, Paige will take on the IMC BAMBAM Championship. One of only a small number of girls racing, Paige will be one to watch out for.
Our goal as a team is to help with the development of young riders from Northern Ireland. British Talent Cup is the perfect platform for the next stage as a team and to see our young talent grow. We look forward to having our riders compete at British and Irish level again this year.
