16-year-old British rider Brian Hart, who was born and lives in Spain, joins Victor Rodriguez at GA Competition for the 2019 season. Hart will ride in the Hel Performance British Motostar Standard class whilst current British Motostar Standard Champion Rodriguez moves up to the GP category.
Hart’s entry into the British Motostar standard class should aid him in with his British Talent Cup endeavours with both championships using similar Honda NSFR250R machines. Hart will want to quickly build on his second place finish in the first British Talent Cup race at Silverstone when the British Motostar series commences at Oulton Park on 4 May 2019.
He said “I am really excited to be riding in Moto3 and want to thank our sponsors and the team for this opportunity.”
2019 sees the Spanish rider Victor Rodriguez return for the fourth consecutive season with GA Competition. Rodriguez recently made a stunning comeback from the back of the grid in the Moto3 Junior World Championship race in Estoril to finish tenth. Electrical problems on the sighting lap gave him a difficult task to overcome in tricky weather conditions.
The rider from Piedralaves will also be looking to put together a strong start to his first season in the British Motostar GP class. He will ride the Dean Reynolds designed and manufactured DR Moto. Rodriguez, is very happy to be racing in the UK again, especially as the series returns to both Donington Park and Assen this year.
The team’s title sponsor is Open Door Properties Ltd, a Widnes based property management company. Open Door Managing Director Rob Poole said “I am delighted to join forces with GA competition and Reynolds Engineering and we are looking forward to a successful 2019 season with Brian and Victor”. The team are also supported by Rock Oil, KAIS-Ohlins, Vinyl Sticker Shack, Doncaster Van Centre and Dunlop.
