FPW Racing announces Taylor alongside Stacey for 2018 Motostar title attack

FPW Racing has announced their 2018 HEL Performance British Motostar Championship line-up, returning with young title contenders Taz Taylor and Storm Stacey.

Taylor was runner-up for FPW Racing in the 125GP class in 2014 before switching teams in 2015 impressing with another competitive season to again finish runner-up, this time in the Moto3 GP class. He will contest the 2018 season using the Kalex chassis with factory KTM power, a combination that proved successful for Stacey during last season.

Stacey remains with the team and sees last year’s hard work rewarded with an opportunity to compete using a recently acquired ex-Phillip Oettl KTM RC250R. He will make his return with a pre-season shakedown test at Cartagena in March, incorporating the British Motostar Championship alongside the British Talent Cup.

Taylor said: “I’m really looking forward to rejoining FPW Racing and have high hopes for this season. I’m back and ready to fight for the championship as I’ve some unfinished business from a few years ago, so let’s see what I can do.”

Stacey added: “I’m excited about riding the new KTM, excited for a fresh beginning and the new season. I can’t wait to test the bike in Spain, and hopefully have a strong season and challenge for the championship.”

Team Owner Adrian Mason concluded: “I’m very pleased and proud to be announcing a strong rider line up, with both riders capable of competing for race wins. Storm showed great consistency last season, and I’m sure he’ll be a championship contender this year. Likewise, Taz is a proven race winner and lap record holder and has experience on his side having been runner-up twice in the past.

“We welcome him back to FPW Racing as we all embark on what we hope will be a successful and rewarding season.”
