After some impressive results in the Scott Nationals, GT Cup and the Redbull rookies, SWS Racing have steeped up to support Ashley Smith in 2014. Ashley eill be riding the Redbull Rookies again and MX2 British Masters.
What Ashley Smith has to say: iv had an up and down season in 2013 with some pritty good results and some bike problems , but overall my speed has been really good. I’m very happy to have been given the chance to ride with SWS Racing for 2014 and hopefully I can step up my game and show my true potential. Ill be looking for a fresh start in next season, new bike l, new team and hopefully some good results. I can’t wait to get under the SWS tent and have some fun. Bring on next season
What team manager Wayne Loughman has to say: After watching Ashley in the Scott Nationals taking some convincing wins in the mx2 class I decided to approach Ashley about some support In 2014. I was really surprised that he hadn’t many sponsors and it didnt take long for us to put a deal together. Iv actually watched Ashley race since his 65 days and he was always a really good rider winning 142 races of the 144 he entered on his sw85. I checked the results and laptimes for his 2013 national races and he was on par with some of the big team rookie riders and actually quicker. Ashley’s time would also see him qualify for the pro MX2 class.
It will be the teams first season entering British Championship Motocross and we are hoping to find our feet and have some fun. There will be no pressure on the team riders, we just want to give them as much support as possible and to just enjoy a good weekends racing.
Ashley Will ride along side the re-signed, and part owner of SWS Racing’s, Shane Loughman. Shane has also has a mixed season with some good results and bike problems and a broken pelvis but both lads are looking to start 2014 in the right direction. The team will announce other riders in the coming months.
We still need more sponsors so anybody that can help please contact team manager @ [email protected]
