Talented racer calls for financial support
James East in need of help to take his career to the next level
TALENTED motorcyclist James East has enjoyed a successful campaign in the British Supersport Cup Championship so far – but the 22-year-old admits it is necessary for him to secure much-needed financial support in order to complete the season.
The Litlington-based racer recently took his 12th podium of 2012 and first win in the British Supersport Cup Championship at Brands Hatch, but now faces a seemingly far more challenging task of finding the funds to continue this form, and help take his career to the next level.
East is in need of �7,500 to complete the season, and is in search of local support to contribute towards this total in the form of sponsorship.

“I have been working very hard this season on and off the track to get to this point,” said East.

“Brands Hatch was a tipping point, we found the set-up, made the Kawasaki work for me and we won the cup and was competing with the best in the country as a privateer.
“I’m asking for any race fans and businesses to get in touch, I can offer sponsorship packages from �500, advertising packages including corporate days at British Superbikes which are available also.
“There is one more step for me from here and that will mean me becoming a professional motorcycle racer in a leading team. That is my goal and everything I work for.
“Ultimately I want to follow in the footsteps of past British World Champions like Carl Fogarty, Barry Sheene and James Toseland. I’ve been told from others I can achieve this and I believe it myself, that with support, I have what it takes to become a world-class rider.”
East is hoping to continue his fine form in the next race at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire on August 25-27.
