Abbz races ahead at Santander Consumer Finance KTM British Junior Cup
Stanair are proud to sponsor local upcoming motorcyclist, Annabel ‘Abbz’ Thomas, from Burton Latimer. After some early successes Abbz has a promising career ahead of her and we were delighted to receive an update on her progress.

Abbz is currently riding in the Santander Consumer Finance KTM British Junior Cup, a competition specifically for young riders aged between 13-18 years old. Competitors undertake eight rounds and 20 races alongside the MCE British Superbike Championship.

The road to success isn’t without its challenges, such as Abbz experiencing a crash in the qualifying session at the Knockhill Race Circuit. Such events can often leave riders shaken, but Abbz has taken all challenges in her stride. Halfway through the series, Abbz’ grit, skill and determination has resulted in her sitting in 9th place and earning the title of top novice.

We are certainly impressed by Abbz’ drive to succeed, and we can’t wait to hear more about the series as it goes on. Well done Abbz, we’re delighted to support you!
