MELKSHAM’S Ryan Hitchcock will return to the British Talent Cup Championship in 2021 as a part of the Wilson Racing team.

The 13-year-old impressed during his rookie year of 2020 on board the Honda NSF250R standard Moto3 machine, finishing 10th in the final championship standings as he scored points in all 10 races.

Reflecting on 2020, he also took two Fab Racing British Championship titles, winning both the LC40 Elite category and the Extreme 200 Championship.

In the LC40 Elite category, Hitchcock arrived at the final race weekend 29 points behind the championship leader but went on to take three race victories and the title by one point.

While the British Talent Cup will be his main focus in 2021, the 13-year-old is also competing in a pitbike series on a CW140R.

He said: “Last year was really good for me. I won two British Championship titles and learning the big tracks on the Moto3 was great fun.

“Returning to Gary Wilson’s British Talent Cup team on the Moto3 was an easy decision for us after we had such a good start on the Moto3 last year.”

“I now have a year’s experience so I hope to be moving towards the podium this year but it is a very competitive series with some good new riders coming in so we will have to wait and see. I am also looking forward to racing the pitbike.”
