Moto Time Attack champ Wilkinson to make roads debut

In News, Roads, Welsh RR

ANDREW Wilkinson looks set to make his roads debut in the new year as he prepares to mount a challenge at the Welsh Road Race.

The former karting ace thrust himself into the short circuit world this season after a handful of trackdays, focusing on the EMRA Rookie championship, where he finished third overall with two wins, and nabbing victory in the 600 Club class at Moto Time Attack following a last-minute entry.

And this week he added even more trophies to the cabinet when he bagged two wins from three at Mallory Park’s annual Boxing Day Plum Pudding races.

Wilkinson bagged victory in the 600 Club class at this year’s inaugural Moto Time Attack event after deciding to enter at the eleventh hour…

But the prospective thrill of road racing has drawn Wilkinson in, and he’s ready to take on the newly-revived Welsh Road Race in August as soon as he pockets his national licence.

“I need some more signatures for the national licence at the moment, which is the sticking point, but I intend to make my roads debut  at the Welsh Road Race,” he told UK Clubsport. “If I can get it done sooner we will be out at Scarborough first, but we may struggle time-wise.

“Those are the main focuses to start with. Following that I hope to one day be able to compete in Ireland and on the Isle of Man, first with the Manx then hopefully one day at the TT itself.

“I love the short circuit racing and will always continue to race on them, but there is something special about road racing and I want to experience that for myself. I honestly believe I have what it takes to be successful at it.”
