OMG Racing Suzuki is delighted to announce their support for 14-year-old Junior Supersport rider Chloe Jones throughout the 2019 season. Jones will continue to ride the OMG Sponsored #51 M.R.S Racing Yamaha R3 Bike as part of the partnership.
Chloe joins the Junior Supersport class for her first full season, having competed in two point-scoring wild card rounds in 2018 and becoming the first female to score points in the Junior Supersport class, including a top 10 finish.
The championship runs alongside the Bennetts British Superbike Paddock for eight rounds, with two races per weekend with the exception of Knockhill, which will see Chloe compete in four races.
Jones is a former mini-bike champion and in 2017 was crowned Mini GP 140 Champion with a round to spare. Quickly becoming a fan favourite, this year she was also voted Young Rider of the Year by the public at the inaugural Motorsports Awards.
Chloe will be appearing on OMG’s social media throughout 2019 and fans will have the opportunity to meet her during pit walks and signing sessions, where she will sit alongside OMG’s stellar senior line-up of Luke Mossey, Josh Elliott and Billy McConnell.

“OMG I’m absolutely BUZZING for this season in the Junior Supersport class. I can’t wait to compete in my first full season and hopefully be able to show people what I can do.”
“OMG have been totally amazing and offered me their support which means the absolute world to me. Their confidence in me has really gave me that extra boost for the upcoming season. It’s going to be a brilliant year!”
For the ‘M’ in ‘OMG’ – Greg McPhail, OMG’s support allows the team to continue its philosophy of breaking the mould.

“At OMG we have always been about doing things differently in the paddock and the opportunity to work alongside such a talented young rider meant for us this was an easy decision. We’ll be keeping a close eye on Chloe’s results throughout 2019 and hopefully she’ll be a great ambassador of our philosophy of having fun and winning races!”
Team Principal Paul Curran has worked and raced in the Superbike paddock for the last twelve years and is hoping to pass on some of his knowledge with Chloe as she joins the paddock for her first full season.

“Chloe is a fantastic young talent and this partnership firms up OMG’s long-term commitment to the BSB paddock as a whole. It’s great to see another girl coming into the sport and showing kids that anyone can get on a bike. As a young rider, it’s important that you get opportunities to see how the sport functions at its highest level so that you’re able to keep developing, we’re delighted to be able to offer Chloe that opportunity and hopefully she can continue her success to date.”
“We’re looking forward to working with Chloe and the M.R.S Yamaha team over the 2019 season and lending our support whenever possible”
Chloe’s first outing will be at Cartagena for a pre-season test. You can follow her on social media below;
