Mickie’s Brit task

After a couple of weeks away from racing, Wrangle youngster Mickie Simpson has been invited to race in the re-scheduled one-off British Youth 125cc final at Berwick upon Tweed.

Saturday’s Stars of the Future’s meeting will be run of a track which is new to Mickie.

Eight youngsters have been selected to compete by Neil Vatcher, the national youth manager, and this offers a very strong field.

Mickie is hoping to have a new engine for the meeting, but won’t have time to test it properly - so he knows he will be taking a huge gamble.

Last year he finished eighth at the event and is looking to improve upon that finish.

Mickie is also looking for sponsorship.
