New rider Cal Cooper of JDF racing to compete in the RRV 450 Challenge.
Talented 15 year old rider Cal Cooper will ride for JDF Racing this season. Cal, of St. Jude's, will race in the 17-round Aprilia RRV450GP Challenge series run by Thundersport GB.
Cal has opted to get some experience in this series before possibly moving to a larger capacity ride later this year.
Cal is too young to race on a 600cc machine so he has opted to get some experience on the 450cc four-stroke to bridge to bigger and better things under the tutorage of the JDF Racing development team.
Cal secured 12 wins and the Mallory lap record in his debut year in the Aprilia Superteens championship. Difficulties after breaking a leg at Oulton Park were followed by further injury setbacks sustained at Thruxton. On his return, Cal found his height and weight a disadvantage in this series.
Cal has just returned from a three-day test at Cartagena in southern Spain and is now prepared for the first two rounds of the title series at Brands Hatch.
