Shane Faber is Developing Fast with assistance from JDF-Racing.
Competing in the Metrakit 70 series managed by FAB Racing, 12 year old Shane Faber from Henstridge in Somerset is making serious progress in his first season on the 70cc Metrakit machinery.
Rider Development support is being provided by JDF Racing. "Shane is riding very well and we are looking for the next move for him for 2014." says John Davies of JDF-Racing.
Dylan Faber "We are looking at the various options for Shane depending on progress. With the exception of the Aprilia Superteen series there is not a lot of suitable Championships in the UK for 12 – 16 year old riders. We may have to look abroad which is not ideal. John and I have discussed why no one is producing an affordable ‘club’ Moto 3 race bike at the moment. We do not understand how the next generation of riders are going to ride in Moto 3 when they cannot purchase a machine that has the characteristics of the Moto 3 machine but cheaper to manufacture than the bikes we see at World level."
Scott Redding was in attendance at the Whilton Mill kart track in Northants over the weekend to have a bit of fun in the two hour endurance race. He also made time to present trophies to young riders including Shane Faber. One day it is hoped that Shane will follow in Scott's footsteps.
