It’s official.

The Bermuda Motorcycle Racing Association has joined forces with 2B MotorSports to launch the 300SSP class for the 2022 season.

The class is designed to develop young talent on the island and prepare them for overseas competition.

“We have developed this new 300SSP (Super Sport) race series in Bermuda to groom young riders to be on par with other world race organisations,” Billy Dunn, the 2B MotorSports co-founder, told The Royal Gazette. “The age bracket for the 300SSP class is 14-28. Older riders are welcome to join.”

Riders in the new class will compete on the Kawasaki Ninja 400cc class.

“2B Motorsports are building affordable, race-prepared Kawasaki Ninja 400cc motorcycles for this new class that are on par with the United States and Europe's 300SSP race specifications,” Dunn added.

“The Kawasaki 400 is one of three manufactures that run in other race series. We have made the decision to run the Kawasaki 400 in the Bermuda series to keep things simple and more competitive.

“Kawasaki is the most reliable and durable bike that's most widely used. This will keep parts supply consistent for all riders and readily available.

“These bikes are built for intense racing that focus on rider ability rather than the amount of money one spends on equipment.”

There are presently four bikes, all built to the same stock class specification, in production with the aim to have at least ten built for the start of the new season next year.

“We would love to have 15 to 20 bikes on the grid,” Dunn said

2B MotorSports completed a successful pilot test run of the rider-development programme in the United States last month.

CedarBridge Academy student Jediah Cumbermack was chosen as the first to participate in the initiative at the NCCAR track in Garysburg, North Carolina and Summit Point Raceway in Charles Town, West Virginia.

2B MotorSports has also secured a partnership for free track day deals with Motorcycle Xcitement, owned by Roger Lyle, which is available for all young riders involved in their new development programme.
