Crank Racing backs Irwin brothers for British pursuits

In BSB Support, News, Thundersport GB

DEPARTED club racers Caolan and Rhys Irwin are taking a little piece of the Thundersport GB paddock up to BSB, after securing backing from Crank Racing.

The Donegal-based brothers have checked-out of club racing this year, as Rhys heads off to the British Talent Cup and the HEL British Motostar Championship while Caolan joins the Pirelli National Superstock 600 grid.

Crank boss Grimes is supporting the Irwins as they head to the BSB paddock…

And they’ve won the support of Crank team boss, businessman Mark Grimes, who is this year back in Thundersport GB with Ash Milburn aboard the yellow bikes.

“I have known Caolan and Rhys for a few years now, and not only are they both great lads, they’re both very talented young riders,” he said.

“I have been keeping a close eye on their progress while we all ran in the clubs together, but now they’re stepping up to new challenges I wanted to support them.

“The boys will be wearing Crank Racing gear and have our logos on their machines, and we also hope to get Caolan on our machine at some rounds this year as part of our support package.

“I genuinely believe they are both destined for a lot of success in motorcycle racing, and I’m thrilled to be in a position to offer them both support.”

Caolan and Rhys are both in action at Donington Park over the Easter weekend, with their respective championships both part of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship support-programme.
