Charlie Farrer Is Constantly Improving Round By Round In His First Full Season In The Pirelli National Junior Superstock Championship.

County Durham rider 19-year-old Charlie Farrer made the step-up to the Pirelli National Superstock Championship, after a very successful 2020 season the British Talent Cup riding for Mortimer Racing Victoria House Academy, Charlie finished runner-up in the Class, just missing out on the Championship Title by 19 points . Charlie is making waves now in the Pirelli National Junior Superstock Championship, every round he is finishing in a higher position, chasing that first 2021 season podium for himself and The Mortimer Racing Victoria House Academy Team.

Charlie is from a non-bike racing family, he began playing around on motorcross bikes at the young age of five, he had his first taste of tarmac racing at the age of 11, riding a Mini Moto bike in his home town of Durham. In 2014 he made his racing debut in the Winter British Minibike Mini Moto Championship. In 2015 Charlie won the British Minibike Mini Moto Junior Production Championship, the same year he also entered the British Metrakit 70 Championship and finished second overall.

Charlie made the step-up to bigger racing machines in 2016, riding a Kawasaki Ninja 300 in the BMCRC Kawasaki Team Green Junior Cup. Charlie was leading the Championship but unfortunately he had a motorcross accident, which cut his season short, but he still managed to end the season in fourth place.

For 2017 Charlie had a very dominate season in the UK Club Racing scene, he won three titles competing in the Thundersport GB Superteen Championship, BMCRC Kawasaki Team Green Junior Cup Championship and he was Kawasaki Team Green Overall Champion.

After dominating the UK Club Racing Scene Charlie moved-up to the Pirelli National Superstock 600 in 2018, he was was running his own private Yamaha R6, during the season, Charlie was selected to contest The Inaugural British Talent Cup, he soon took to riding in the Class and won the chance to return to the Class in 2019.

In 2019 Charlie rode in the British Motostar Championship with Banks Racing, the Team unfortunately missed the first round of the Championship and that’s where Charlie and Richard Mortimer’s history came into play, Richard provided Charlie with a bike at just two days notice, Charlie scored two third place finishes in his debut weekend. He later returned to the British Talent Cup and was at the sharp-end in every race, leading races and finishing on the podium.

2020 saw a full-season of Charlie riding for Richard Mortimer in The Mortimer Racing Victoria House Academy Team in the British Talent Cup.

“Once I found out I was still eligible for the British Talent Cup, I had a few offers on the table but for me, Richard’s was definitely the best,” said Farrer. “He helped me out last year by offering me the chance to ride his bike at round one when Pete Banks was ill, and we built a good relationship from there.
“I respect him, we get on really well and I couldn’t think of a better team to be with. The reason I’ve decided to do the British Talent Cup this year is because I think I can win it. I had some great races and podiums last year in the Talent Cup and Motostar Standard, and I do feel like I’ve got unfinished business there.
“I could’ve made the move to 600s but I genuinely think I can win. I certainly want to be running up at the front. Richard wants that too and he believes in me so I’m raring to go now. I want to thank him for this amazing opportunity and I can’t wait for the season to begin.”

“The concept behind the Victoria House Academy is to take on board young British riders who already have experience and a proven record that they can ride a motorcycle at the highest level of British Moto3 Racing.
“From here, we provide the best machinery, instill maximum confidence, work on fitness levels and all round race craft. For 2020 Charlie was the obvious rider of choice for our small team and his chance to take the road to MotoGP.
“I’m excited and looking forward to working with Charlie alongside Crew Chief Keith Taylor who has worked closely with him in the past and also has a wealth of experience in Moto3.”

Charlie finished the 2020 season in second place, having won two races with a further five podiums. A very successful first full season riding for Mortimer Racing. For 2021 Charlie made the step back into the Pirelli National Junior Superstock Championship with Mortimer Racing. He is starting to make his mark in the Class, with each race Charlie gets a higher finishing position, chasing that first podium finish!
