Young Speedway Superstar Oliver Bovingdon – proudly sponsored by Taunton Chamber members Cleaning Solutions UK
Cleaning Solutions UK owner, Richard Williams: “As a long time fan of both Speedway and Grass Track racing (my Dad used to take me and my brother), I wanted to try to get involved with a local young rider with the view to following, and supporting them through their progress in the sport.
2023 will mark the third full season that we have sponsored Oliver and it looks to be a very exciting one. As well as his super skills, Oliver is a wonderful young person, always well turned out, race ready and ever so polite and dedicated. His progress has been exceptional and we are very proud to continue our support of such an inspirational local lad”
Oliver’s Dad Chris tells us more: “Oliver has been enjoying his time on the track from the age of 6, and now at the age of 10 has established himself as one of the most promising riders of his Generation. He had a fantastic season last year with race meetings all over the country and countless podium finishes but the highlights in no particular order were:
- Taking a team spot for the Redcar Cubs in the Northern Junior speedway league, and going on to win the league title.
- Finishing 2nd place in the British grass track championships at Helsby near Liverpool where he only dropped a single point through all the heats to the winner.
- Finishing 3rd place overall in the British youth speedway championship which was held over 7 rounds all over the country at tracks from Kent to Glasgow, again only missing out on claiming 2nd place by 2pts over the entire series
“We have just been on a training week during the February half term holidays, with Team GB to Macon in France where Oliver had two days on track testing set ups and pre-season training ready for 2023.
For our 2023 season we are entered back into both the British youth speedway championships and the grass track, but the most exciting prospect for Oliver is that he has been awarded one of two UK places to ride for Team GB in both the European youth speedway final and Youth World track racing final both taking place in Gdańsk- Poland in July”
Everyone at Taunton Chamber of Commerce wishes Oliver all the best for another successful season – you can follow his progress at: www.facebook.com/OBRacing15
