TAYLOR Mackenzie, son of 500cc GP legend Niall Mackenzie, has agreed terms for a two-year deal to compete in the FIM World Championship with the Worldwide Race Group.

The 17-year-old rider and team signed a two-year agreement, therefore covering both the last world 125cc season and the first Moto3 Championship in 2012.

Young Mackenzie made his debut at the age of 13 in both Scottish and British minibike championship. He has raced from 2008 to 2010 in the British 125cc Championship, and conquered his first victory in the class last summer at Cadwell Park.

In 2009, the young Brit was selected to take part in the Red Bull Rookies Cup. In 2010 he lined up twice as wild card in the 125cc World Championship.

Great news. Following BSB you can see that there is some real British talent out there. However it would be nice to see some more British sponsorship deals to assist more through to the world stage.

I don't know if any riding publications sponsor British riders, but it would be good if they set up a sponsorship site where the readers can donate sponsorship monies and vote for those that they think should receive the extra financial support, and start to make a dent on the italian / spanish monopoly of world class rides.
