Luke races ahead in Norasport mini-bike championships
Luke Hutchison, in Year 8, is an enthusiastic and talented motorcyclist who is making a name for himself in the English Norasport Championship and the Scottish Mini-Bike Championship. He is currently leading the Norasport competition and is looking forward to defending his position in the next rounds during July and August.
The Norasport academy mini-bike circuit involves 12 laps and Luke’s average is an impressive 58 seconds per lap, depending on the track. Luke rides a Symoto 140cc Pit bike, which is a derivative of a motor-cross bike with a four-stroke engine and ten-inch wheels. Luke has had an interest in racing from an early age and enjoyed watching his Dad and two Uncles race at tracks such as Croft and Cadwell Park. Luke started racing in 2018 and after competing in two rounds of the Cool Fab Racing Championship on a 50cc mini-motor, he was hooked.
Luke said: “Racing is very much in my blood – my ambition is to do road racing but I’m not old enough yet. My Uncle Tony did the Isle of Man TT and that is my aim as soon as I am able. I started racing in the British mini-bike championship in 2020 on a monkey bike. Although I had a few crashes and didn’t score any points, it was a positive and worthwhile experience as it taught me a lot of things about handling, fitness and bike performance. I am really enjoying the Norasport championship which gives young riders a feel for racing and helps them progress with their bike skills.”
Luke clearly has a promising talent and to further his career he is seeking sponsorship. If any companies or individuals are interested in supporting Luke then please join the Team Hutch Racing Facebook Page
We look forward to hearing how Luke gets on over the summer and wish him the very best in both championships.
