MOTORSPORT: LIAM Delves is to ride for GR Motorsport with Dr Moto in the 2017 British Motostar Championship which runs as a support class to the British Superbike championship.
Continuing the ethos of the STAUFF Connect Academy, GR Motorsport are pleased to announce a new project with Reynolds Engineering Ltd, manufacturers of the MotoGP specification DR Moto.
The project is to develop and manufacture a Moto3 DR Moto, to be piloted by Delves in the STAUFF Connect Academy’s striking Green and Yellow livery.
The project started when both GR Motorsport and Reynolds Engineering supported Liam in the 2016 MotoStar standard class.
After a huge crash at Brands Hatch broke the bike frame, Brent asked managing director Dean Reynolds if his company could make something better for the future. Dean’s answer was a simple ‘Yes’ and the project was born.
Sixteen-year-old Delves recently completed his studies at Smiths Wood Sports College and is now working as an apprentice sign maker at the Solihull-based company Signarama.
He is looking forward to riding for GR Motorsport in the 2017 British Motostar Championship.
“I am very grateful to have been given this great opportunity,” said Delves. “I can’t thank Brent Gladwin, Dr-Moto and STAUFF Connect Academy for their support.
“I will work harder than ever on and off track. I would also like to thank all my sponsors and supporters for getting me to this point. We have a lot of work to do but are excited about the challenges of the season ahead.”
The opening round of the 2017 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship takes place at Donington Park on March 30/April 2.
