The Key Safe Company drives support for local racer
Worcestershire could soon be the home to a World Champion Motorcycle Racer thanks to a generous donation from local firm The Key Safe Company.
Henry Yardley, 18, one of the youngest motorcycle racers set to compete in the Youth125cc class at the Enduro World Championships this year, has been gifted the £1,000 donation to help him towards achieving his life-long goal.
Henry, who has been riding motorbikes since the age of four, will be taking part in a variety of competitions throughout 2019, including the British Enduro Championships and the Enduro World Championships, which takes place across Europe, including Spain, Germany and Italy.
The donation will help Henry throughout his 2019 season, allowing him to upgrade his bike to ensure it is up to competition standard. This will include replacing the suspension on his bike, which is vital in allowing him to ensure his lap times are competitive.
Henry commented: "I would like to thank The Key Safe Company for its generous donation. It will greatly benefit my 2019 season and will make a huge difference in helping me to achieve my goal of becoming a World Champion Motorcycle Racer."
David Ogden, Managing Director of The Key Safe Company, commented: "We are thrilled to be able to support Henry and give back to members of the local community. I am extremely passionate about motorsport being a keen speed freak myself and recently racing my Mini Mark 1 at Goodwood Festival. After meeting Henry and recognising his determination and dedication to the sport we wanted to do everything we could to help him achieve his champion status. He's an extremely talented young man and we wish him the very best of luck for his 2019 season."
