Sideways move for Crump as he follows speedway legend father to race for MSS Performance

Young Australian race star Seth Crump is moving to the UK to race for MSS Performance onboard a Kawasaki Ninja 400 in the HEL Performance British Junior Supersport Championship.

Crump, the son of three-time Speedway World Champion Jason, who is coming out of retirement this year to race for the Ipswich Witches, will race his first full season on the British scene when the season gets underway at Silverstone at Easter.

The sixteen-year-old from the Gold Coast, Australia, came to international attention when he won the Phillip Island MotoGP support class race and has also already won a round of the Australian SBK series in his class.

Renowned Kawasaki tuning house MSS Performance has had success in every class of racing with green machines over a number of years from club racing to British Superbike. In 2020 they will be aiming to collect two titles to add to their ever-growing trophy cabinet, with Tom Ward and Chrissy Rouse eyeing the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship alongside Crump in the Junior category.

Crump said: “The best racing is in Europe and racing in England is an important step. All the classes in BSB are mega competitive and I’m looking forward to learning and working with MSS Performance to push on to the next level.”

MSS Performance owner Nick Morgan explained, “Seth obviously comes from good racing ‘stock’ but more than that he has a great attitude to the job in hand, rare in a rider so young. The Kawasaki Ninja 400 is a cracking little race bike and we’ve had some good results with them, so we’re looking forward to getting Seth dialled in for a year on the BSB tour!”
