The ‘KJM/Manchetts’ Fen Tigers have moved quickly to secure the services of the 2017 British 500cc Youth Champion, Ipswich based Drew Kemp, for the 2018 season.

Kemp who claimed his title at Glasgow on Saturday, has been a regular visitor at Mildenhall this season and has impressed the Mildenhall management team both on and off the track. As well as the Glasgow round he also won at Redcar and Scunthorpe and was extremely unlucky when his bike packed up in the Belle Vue round final when leading Kyle Bickley. The Ipswich born racer who only turned fifteen on 11th August will start the 2018 season in one of the reserve berths for the Fen Tigers, and will feature on occasion this season as his other commitments allow.

A very satisfied Kevin Jolly said “This is another coup for Mildenhall Speedway and Drew fits in perfectly with what we are trying to build at Mildenhall. Drew is very much the type of rider we want at Mildenhall, young, talented, bright, dedicated and ambitious. We will do all we can to help him meet his goals and look forward to working closely with him and his family in the coming season.

In all discussions with Drew and his family, very much like with Jordan (Jenkins) last season, Drew’s education was a very important part of next year as he prepares to sit his exams. We are happy to accommodate his non speedway needs as his education is of great importance and we will work closely with him to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible. As a family the Kemp’s were very easy to deal to with and I am pleased to welcome them all to the Mildenhall Speedway ‘family”
