Michael Laverty’s VisionTrack Racing Team will gain Road to MotoGP™ backing in the 2023 Hawkers European Talent Cup, whilst also defending their title in the British Talent Cup with Johnny Garness.
The young Brit awaits the chance to move further up the Road to MotoGP™, and together they will race with the programme’s support in the ETC.
Former Grand Prix rider Michael Laverty’s VisionTrack structure has already become a key pillar of opportunity for young riders from Britain, fielding competitors from national competitions through to the Moto3™ World Championship. That includes a presence in the Finetwork FIM JuniorGP™ World Championship and the ETC within it.
This new collaboration between the VisionTrack ETC team and the Road to MotoGP™ creates a clear path for BTC riders on the Road to MotoGP™ and ensures Garness, who is not yet eligible to race in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and will attempt to defend the BTC crown, can continue his learning and progress.
Garness’ ETC teammate will be Casey O’Gorman, the 2021 BTC Champion, who was already promoted into the 2022 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup as a Dorna-selected rider.
