Bolton based team Mortimer Racing have extended their rider-line up for their 2022 season campaign in the Honda British Talent Cup. The team have a new signing with Scottish rider Troy Jeffrey, this will be Troy’s second consecutive season in the Honda British Talent Cup, he finished in 14th place in the Championship Standings whilst riding for Stiggymotorsport in 2021, with a best place finish of sixth at Knockhill, Thruxton and Silverstone.

Thirteen year-old Troy is from Kelso in the Scottish Borders, he has been racing motorcycles for seven years, he started riding a PW50 at the young age of three, he started his racing career at the age of six riding a Mini Moto. Troy’s favorite circuit on the Honda British Talent Cup Calendar is Thruxton. Troy comes from a non-racing background but his parents and sister are very supportive, which will be a perfect fit for joining Mortimer Racing.

I’m very excited to be joining the team and that Richard has shown faith in me, I can’t wait to actually meet all the team and start riding for them. I’m very happy about the whole thing and can’t wait to go testing in March.

Former International Road Racer Richard Mortimer formed the Mortimer Racing Victoria House Academy Team back in 2019, Richard provided a bike for County Durham rider Charlie Farrer part way through the 2019 season. Charlie signed for the team in 2020 which was a very successful season, Charlie finished in second place in the Honda British Talent Cup championship standings. Richard formed the team to bring on young riders with his own personal preference, knowledge and experience on Moto 3 machinery.

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 Moto 3 Racing.

From here, we provide the best machinery, install maximum confidence, work on fitness levels and all round race craft. For 2022 Troy  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 Troy and his family alongside Crew Chief Keith Taylor who has a wealth of experience in Moto3 and proven track record of producing winners.

Riding along side Troy will be Irish rider 14- year-old Alexander Rowan, this will be Alexander’s second consecutive season riding for the team. Unfortunately Alexander had a pre-season injury in 2021 which hampered the start of his season, his second half of the season was more productive and he ended his season with valuable championship points.

I am very happy to be back with Mortimer Racing to benefit from the Team’s Moto 3 knowledge and experience. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Richard, Keith and Sharon last season. My aim is to start this season injury free and to pleasantly surprise with my results. Also I’m looking forward to partnering Troy in the Team.
