Platform Hire Racing is owned by Dave & Mandy Williams, also owners of PlatformHire.Co.Uk which has been a familiar name within the BSB paddock for many years. They both have a huge passion for motorsport and decided they wanted a fresh and exciting new approach to marketing Platform Hire which led to an introduction into the BSB paddock when they became Title Sponsor for BSB Veteran and fan favourite Aaron Zanotti in 2016. They remained a familiar name within the paddock having supported Aaron for 3 years, they joined forces with Danny Buchan for 2 years and they are currently personal sponsor to 2015 World Champion Danny Kent with whom they have built a long term relationship and continue to support Danny in his BSB campaign for 2022 with Hawk Racing
However it was 2021 that brought about an exciting turn of events with the acquisition of Morello Racing. Having long had aspirations to run their own team and on hearing that Morello were pulling out of the 2021 season they were swift to negotiate the purchase in time to embark on the 2021 season in the Pirelli National Stock 1000 Championship under the banner of Platform Hire Racing.
Although the name changed the key factors remained the same with Chris Sayle from Tracktech remaining on board looking after all the technical aspects for the team.
The 2021 season was undertaken with two time British Champion, rider #34 Jordan Weaving riding the Kawasaki ZX10R1
The season showed much promise with results improving round on round as Chris and Jordan learnt the new bike together leading to an outstanding final race of the season, which was a Masterclass by Jordan rewarding him with a second place podium finish only 0.043 from first place. – Click this link to watch the last lap of the race, or if you have more time click this link to watch the race in full.
We now focus on the 2022 campaign competing again in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship where Jordan returns to challenge for the title and is joined by TJ Toms whom we are excited to welcome to the team and completes our two rider line up for this season.
