Reece Young’s motorsport career got off to a winning start with the rookie racer taking the Newcomer 1000 title in the No Limits Racing Championships.
His debut season success was made all the more impressive with him changing motorbikes, for another Suzuki GSX-R1000, during the season.
We helped Reece in his debut season with discounted Suzuki parts for race riders and clothing.
Reece had a cracking season, finishing 25 of the 32 races with 10 wins, four seconds and five thirds.
A total of 53 riders competed at various times over the eight rounds with Reece finishing top of the standings with 471.5 points, 20.5 ahead of the runner-up.
And he was competing against several experienced race riders with bigger budgets.
The Ipswich electrician started on a 2007 Suzuki GSX-R1000 but, midway through the season, bought a 2020 model and had to learn how to get the best out of it.
“The new bike has electronics so I had to get used to them,” said Reece, 31, who had always wanted to race but was not able to when he was younger and then worked abroad which limited him to doing track days.
“I had a couple of mishaps and a few crashes and that almost cost me the championship,” he explained.
The round at Anglesey saw him crash out in two races on different bikes.
But he found his form again and won five races on the trot in rounds six and seven to get back into contention.
Now he aims to make up for lost time by moving into the super series elite tier next season. The extra costs mean he is looking for sponsorship and he's already had some interest.
