“an exceptionally talented Motorcycle Racer from Crook in County Durham …”

Being keen to build on last year’s success in the British Talent Cup, Franco will step up to the Junior Stock 600 on a Kawasaki ZX636R, riding under the Chris Walker Kawasaki banner for 2021. The team of Pete Boast and Ryan Higgins, with support from Chris, are really looking forward to a new challenge, of 14 races over 11 meetings, with Franco’s new number 39. The race calendar for 2021 can be found HERE

Franco races at Brands Hatch

March 2017 saw the arrival of his Aprilia 125 on which Franco raced at the illustrious Brands Hatch Race Circuit. Coming third place in three races and winning Rider of the Meeting, Brands Hatch was a dream come true for the young rider. When he turned 13 he progressed to the 300 Kawasaki, another great milestone.

The early years …

Born in 2004, Franco found his love for racing at the early age of 6 and began competing on Mini Motos the following year aged just 7 years old. Winning many races on the mini bikes, he progressed to a Merikit GP70, winning the NMRRC and coming second in the Watercooled Mini Bike Championship.
