Youngster Liam Delves will return to the Hel British Motostar series in 2017 but will ride a British-built bike using KTM power under Brent Gladwin’s Stauff Connect Academy colours.
The DR-Moto machine is new project to build a sensibly priced chassis kit which will help the young, up and coming riders to progress in the sport. After working with Delves during 2016 it was decided to build a bike to help him further his career and become involved in the manufacture of a British built motorcycle in the process.
Established in 1993 by managing director Dean Reynolds, Reynolds Engineering has developed as a leading manufacturer and supplier of precision machined components to the motorsport industry. With customers on the Formula 1 grid along with others in BSB, WSB and MotoGP - Reynolds Engineering has a reputation for excellence in engineering and a passion for the manufacture of specialist motorcycle chassis components.
Delves, who has recently completed his studies at Smiths Wood Sports College is now working as an apprentice sign maker at the Solihull based company Signarama and is looking forward to riding the DR-Moto this season.
“I would like to take to this opportunity to thank DR-Moto and GR-Motosport for giving me this great opportunity. The bike is amazing and I cannot wait to get out on track and put it through its paces in testing,” he said.
