PennWhite Helps Young Racer Stay On Track.

Although just sixteen years old, Bradley Hughes from Halesowen is already a veteran of the British motorcycle racing circuit; at age 10 he won his first national championship and by 13 had another two titles to his name. In 2012 Brad raced in the 125GP Championship series with support from PennWhite.

PennWhite’s involvement was championed by directors Stephen and John Whitehead Jr. who are keen motorcyclists themselves, arriving at PennWhite during the summer on an Aprilia and Ducati respectively. Stephen explains “As a business we always try to help young British talent, it’s a way for us to give something back to the wider community.”  His brother John adds that “We [PennWhite] are constantly pushing ourselves to improve, to do better, so there’s a natural fit with Brad’s racing ambition.”

That ambition could see Brad move into the Superstock 600 Championship next year if he can raise additional financial support. During the 2013 season PennWhite have again supported Bradley in 125GP, while he has also competed in regional events on his Suzuki GSXR 600 against older riders on more powerful machines. His impressive results on the bigger bike have made him even more determined to compete in the 600cc class next year.
