Jake Dixon to make Moto2 appearance
Jake Dixon is set to join the Moto2 grid later this month at his home round of Silverstone after a dazzling year in the MCE British Superbike Championship with Lee Hardy Racing.
Granted permission from his RAF Regular and Reserve Kawasaki team, the 21-year-old will join the Dynavolt team and knowing the circuit as well as he does he will be looking to impress in this outing.
Lee Hardy commented: 'Jake has really shown what he is capable of in the British Championship this season and it is a testament to our team and all of our sponsors involved that he has been head hunted for this Moto2 appearance.
'As a private team we are proud that we have put a package underneath Jake this year that has allowed him to showcase his ability and prove to others he has what it takes to go to the top.
'Jake has the full support of the team, the Royal Air Force, Briggs Equipment, Mother Hubbard's and everyone else involved ahead of the event and we will be there to support him as we would at any other race meeting.
'Jake is still fully focused on fighting for a place in the Showdown and that continues this weekend at Cadwell Park and then of course the Title Fighter deciding round at Silverstone next month.'
