New signing for race team

MORPETH-BASED SGR Racing has announced that it has signed young Scottish racer Jason Vernon from Dumfriesshire for the forthcoming 2013 season.

The team will once again be contesting the British Monster Energy Motostar Championship, where Jason can be also be included in the Cup category as well as the main race due to being under the age limit of 16.

Steve Kinghorn, Team Manager of SGR Racing, said: “We are so excited to get the opportunity of running Jason and bringing him to the premier level of motorcycle racing in the UK.

“Our whole aim as a team is to be a stepladder for young talent to get a great grounding in top-level motorcycle racing and help them further their careers, hopefully onto MotoGP level.”

He and his staff are looking to start testing early in February, subject to weather conditions, ahead of the start of the 2013 season in early April at the Brands Hatch Circuit in Kent.

SGR Racing would like to thank all its sponsors and welcome on board which is backing the team for the coming season.
