On the face of it, JakeDixon is just another talented 21-year-old British motorcycle racerhoping forashot at the big time.



The Moto2 machine took some learning.

Okay, there may be one or two factors that sets him apart, one in particular is that not many have a father who is a double world champion. Then again, it could be argued that dad Darren’s prowess was on three wheels, although he was very capable two, including winning the British Championship in 1988 on a Suzuki RG500.

The second is Dixon’s substantial racing pedigree which is without doubt. It has seen him come through the support ranks as a raw teenager and become a regular winner; it looked as though 2016 was going in the same direction when he suddenly parted company with Dave Tyson’s MV Agusta squad in the British Supersport series and was left without a ride. “Dave’s a great guy but it just wasn’t working out as the support we had been promised from the factory just wasn’t happening. It came to the point that I knew my bike wasn’t capable of winning, so I called Dave up and gave him my reasons as the whole point was to win the championship. I needed to make a change and as a result, I was left without a ride”, explained a daring Dixon.

Things are looking up for Dixon.
