Local teen Stuart Heywood is gearing up for the season on board his KTM RC390, backed by SMC Bikes.
Stuart will be riding in the Thundersport championship this year in the Junior cup. This popular class is filled with talented riders from all over the UK and often filters riders into the British superbike paddock. His season begins on the weekend of the 2nd-3rd May at Snetterton and throughout the year will take him to the best of the British tracks including Donnington, Cadwell and Oulton Park.
At 5 years old Stuart started racing in motocross and progressed onto trials riding. This will be his first year riding the KTM and he's looking to learn all he can from the bike.
Stuart's KTM RC 390 is a relatively standard bike that can be purchased straight out of the showroom but features various performance upgrades such as an Akrapovic exhaust and WP suspension to help with improved power and handling.
We wish Stuart the best of luck for the season.

Sheffield Motorcycle Centre Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Sheffield Motorcycle Centre Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
