HARRISON Mackay will line up for his first full season in the Honda British Talent Cup this season as he forges ahead with True Heroes Racing.
Following a strong campaign of podium finishes in FAB Racing’s flagship MiniGP classes in 2020, the youngster made wildcard BTC appearances as one of the team’s affiliated riders, including his debut at Donington Park where he narrowly missed out on a post-scoring finish.
For 2021, Mackay will continue to run under the True Heroes banner, a group which offers opportunities for wounded, injured and sick UK service personnel and veterans to become directly involved with race action.
“I’m really excited to be entering my first full season in the Honda British Talent Cup,” Mackay said.
“As a newcomer to the championship, bike and circuits I am under no illusions this will be a tough and challenging year, but I’m over the moon to be racing with the same number and the same team around me as my step Dad.
“I can’t thank my Mum and Dave enough for providing me with this opportunity, my personal sponsors and for Phil for allowing me to continue to support True Heroes Racing, but also to have them supporting me.”
True Heroes Racing Founder and Team Principal, Phil Spencer added: “Ever since Dave [Sellers] started racing with us at Assen in 2018, Harrison has been a part of the team, so it’s great for us to be a part of his racing progression.
“For the last two years he’s been actively promoting and raising awareness of True Heroes Racing amongst the younger generation at Fab-Racing.
“For Harrison to want to continue to be affiliated to True Heroes Racing as he steps up to the BTC, and offer us the opportunity for more wounded, injured and sick UK Service personnel and veterans to benefit from becoming involved working on his race bike is great.
“As an organisation we can’t wait to get Harrison and his bike into the awning among our other team members.”
The 2021 British Talent Cup is set to kick off with a pre-season test from May 4-6 at Snetterton.
