Delighted to be given the opportunity to compete on the distinctive yellow, red liveried Beale Roberts Yamaha, the racer who’s originally from Huyton, stated:

“This year I’ve had a few successful rides on board the EPR ROTAX, a few podiums in the post classic class including last week in Hockenheim, a 1st and a 2nd on debut there.

Eagerly awaiting heading to Scarborough, to pilot the Eddie Roberts Yamaha. Will be the first time I have sat on the bike. Looking forward to it. As Eddie Roberts was a local hero.”
