20 year old Hunter Ford acquired a taste and obsession for bikes and speed from the early age of two. He started competition racing at 15 years in 2014 joining the MRRDA Road Racing Junior Australian Championship, were he finished second in his very first race.

Since then, Hunter’s achievements in the last five years of racing have been extraordinary, and are well documented. Now he’s ready for the much bigger stage in Europe.

“I’m very happy to race next two years with Hunter Ford. He is fast, talented and has a lot of motivation to do it well in Europe. In 2020 the focus will be on the IDM Supersport 300 championship, but we have bigger plans with him as the World Supersport 300 championship is the goal for 2021. I really hope that Hunter will become the next successful Australian rider in our team and looking forward to the 2020 season.”
