In conversation with our latest sponsorship BSB racer Chloe Jones

Here at Spitfire Speed Shop we are firm believers in supporting upcoming talent across many extreme sports. That's why this season we will be sponsoring BSB rider Chloe Jones.

Chloe, at twenty years old is one of the fastest female riders currently racing in the UK. Starting out racing motorbikes at thirteen years old, she has built an extremely impressive catalogue of championships and results. Aged fourteen Chloe won the MiniGP 140 class in fine style, dominating the year! Since then she has impressed, now the only female rider to stand on the Junior Supersport podium at BSB with a fine 2nd place at Oulton Park.

This year she races for Leon Haslam’s Rokit Rookies on the new Kawasaki 400. We caught up with Chloe for a quick fire Q&A, 

Where did your love of bikes and racing come from? 

I started properly when I was 12 and used to go with my Dad when he was mechanicing. From there I got a cheap little mini motor and I have just loved it ever since. 

This is the second race of the season, how's this weekend been? 

It was pretty good! Learning each session, getting used to the bike as I’ve only done 4-5 sessions on it beforehand, so we are lacking a bit of track time. It’s been quite a good weekend, I struggled in practice with a couple of issues but qualified P4, 0.2 off pole which I was happy with, then finished 2nd place at Oulton Park which I’m over the moon with and a good start to the season. 

What is your favourite track? 

Oulton Park was where I got my first  podium so I do like it here, but my favourite is probably Snetterton. Both tracks are good, they have a bit of everything, it’s up, down, long corners, chicanes, steep hills so it has got a bit of everything which is always fun. 

My biggest inspiration? 

My biggest inspiration is Valentino Rossi, he’s probably everyone's isn’t he. I would also say Jorge Martin.

What’s your aim for the season? 

My aim is to really just have fun and enjoy it, that’s the key to racing. Ideally I want to finish in the top five of each race and remain consistent and see where I end up at the end of the year. 

What are your goals for the future? 

Hopefully to win the Championship this year and after that, just keep enjoying it and keep going up and up on the bikes. GP is the main goal for everyone but I would love to be in the World Championship.
