British starlets to get Spanish chance

The 125 Ajo Motorsport team have announced they are to take part in the final two rounds of the Spanish CEV Buckler 125 Championship and will line up with two British youngsters, James Westmorland, the Academy Cup Winner, and best runner-up Dan Linfoot, both aged 17.

The Ajo Motorsport team launched the careers of riders such as Mika Kallio, and 2005's best rookie Tomy Koyama, and will now give the chance to two up-and-coming Brits in one of the most competitive national 125 championships.

"For our team this is good way to end this season. It is pleasant to work with these two young and promising riders and offer them the chance to get know how a Grand Prix team works," said team manager Aki Ajo.

Westmorland and Linfoot both got to know the Ricardo Tormo circuit last weekend as they entered the last round of the Catalan Championship held at Valencia. That will serve as preparation for next weekend's penultimate round of the Spanish Championship which is to be staged at the same venue.

When the team return to Valencia on November 18th they will be joined by three other Academy Cup stars, and current MotoGP Academy apprentices, Danny Webb, 14, Kev Coghlan, 17 and Bradley Smith, the first-ever British winner of a Spanish Championship race, who is also aged 14. They will conclude their season on November 28th at the Jerez circuit.
