Wilson Racing return to UK with three-strong rider line-up for British Talent Cup

Wilson Racing has announced they will contest the British Talent Cup this season with a three-strong rider line-up ahead of the season opener at Silverstone, lining up with a new title sponsor in Fwd Motion.

FWD Motion is an experienced, full-service creative agency, specialising in boosting brands for global, national and local organisations, providing a completely new look for the 2020 Wilson Racing machines.

The Barnsley based team won the British Motostar standard class Moto3 title in 2017 with Max Cook, whilst last year they took to the podium in the ultra-competitive European Talent Cup. 

They will mark their return to British Championship action with 17-year-old Josh Hiatt from Cannock, who finished fifth in the British Motostar standard class last season. He will be joined by two 12-year-old racers who will embark on their first ever-competitive races on a Honda NSF250R this year.

James Cook is the younger brother of Max who won the title in 2017 to now race in the Moto3 Junior World Championship. Cook finished fourth in the Cool Fab Racing Metra kit GP70 class last season.

Ryan Hitchcock who also raced in the Cool Fab Racing series until this season, finishing fourth in the GP50 class, completes the team line-up. He also competed in the GP70 finishing sixth overall.

All three riders have recently completed a successful official BSB test at Jerez and are now continuing their pre-season preparations at Cartagena in Murcia.

Team Manager Gary Wilson commented: ”I am really looking forward to working with the three riders we have brought in. Josh has some valuable experience he can pass on to the younger lads. Whilst James and Ryan have no previous knowledge of racing a Moto3 it will be fun working with a blank sheet of paper. This gives us an opportunity to instil the necessary skills to start them on the right path in this class.”
