Meet some of our drivers

Ivan Taylor 

S6 600 Superlite No.26

Dad and lad team Ivan Taylor and Josh Taylor have competed in the British Superlite Championship for the last 2 seasons and cannot stress how much fun they have had so far.  In Ivan's own words

"Whilst the racing on track is as competitive as you would care to find, behind the scenes things are run with military precision.  Off track it is a place where if you require help it will be there in abundance from all in the pit lane. These things combined with a fantastic social side to the sport make this is a no brainer for anyone thinking of breaking into the Motorsport scene.... Look forward to seeing you in 2021".

Tony Turner 

S10 1000 Superlite No: 1

Age: 36

Occupation: Industrial Services Technician

Tony has been involved with Norasport for well over 20 years, starting out as a Marshall, Time keeper and then back in 2009 he purchased a 600 Superlite. For 10 years he competed in the S6 class, recording numerous podium positions and class wins.  Tony is one of our longest serving competitors, hear why Tony still loves to race his Superlite: 

 

"In 2018 I managed to become the S6 British Champion and followed that up by winning the S6 Masters Cup for the 4th time.  At the end of 2019 I decided to upgrade to the S10 class with the new fuel injected fireblade engine. This season I have had a solid start to the season with a couple of podium finishes and find myself getting quicker and quicker at each meeting. 

The Superlite ‘family’ is awesome and nothing compares to the banter and family atmosphere we all have. From having a BBQ and beers the night before to battling it out on the track, racing hard and acknowledging a fellow competitor when you have had a close battle. 

Massive thanks go to my step dad, Nick, who supports me at every event keeping the car on circuit and set up ready for me to race. 

Here’s looking forward to 2021 and hoping to keep pushing forward and working hard...."

Ben Smalley

S6 600 Superlite No: 96

New to the Superlite Championship in 2020 Ben became the youngest ever racer in the series at the age of just 13 years, 10 months and 19 days when he made his debut at the Warm-Up round in March.

 

Ben had previously started riding a quad bike at the age of 3 and then moved into karting at the age of 5, but couldn’t start competing until he’d reached the age of 7. The following year in the September of 2014 he took his first karting win and went on to become the Winter Series Champion at Stretton. Ben continued in karting at Club, MSA and NKF level, moving up from Cadet, to Pro-kart, to Mini Max and finally to Junior where he finished as Red Lodge Champion before moving up to Superlite Racing.

 

Ben also became the youngest ever Superlite Race Winner in his rookie season when at the 2020  Teesside double header meeting he claimed 2 race victories and a second place on Day 2 to take the top honours of the Day, having previously picked up the Third Place Trophy and the Driver of the Day Award on Day 1. The Teesside results were also to play a big part of his first season as combined with a Second place at Cadwell and a Fourth Place at Three Sisters he went on to secure 2nd Place in the Overall S6 Championship.

 

Having now made the transition from Karting to Superlites and having also enjoyed the new challenges of much larger tracks such as Cadwell Park, (which he described as “The best experience of my life, ever…”) Ben has no regrets on leaving karting and is eagerly looking forward to the 2021 Superlite Championship.
