THE Morpeth-based SGR Racing team has finalised its exciting rider line-up for 2011 with two talented 15-year-olds taking up the reigns.

The team has signed up Chrissy Rouse, who won the Aprilia Superteen Championship in 2010, and Karl Corbett, who is a newcomer to full-time road racing, to race in the 125 GP British Championship this year.

Rouse, from Newcastle, has been road racing for three years now and feels he is ready to take the step-up to the British Championship under the guidance of SGR Racing.

Corbett, from Ballyclare in Northern Ireland, is very much in at the deep end as 2011 will be his first full season of road racing so he is out to learn as much as he can as he gets to grips with the British circuits. His background is motocross and mini motos, where he has picked up numerous wins.

Stephen Kinghorn, Team Manager said: “I’m thrilled to have two young talented riders lined up for 2011.

“I know they will both work hard to improve their riding skills and their results each weekend. SGR Racing is here to develop young riders and to give them the support they need.

“Our aim is to see them progress through to the next level in the British Championship.

“We are also very happy to have a new sponsor on board. Imperium Law, specialists in personal injury claims, will be our major sponsor.

“If anyone else would like to help us by supporting the team, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
