Ryan Strafford (57)
Rider / Team Owner
William Swift (117)
In 2005 Will was involved in a serious road traffic accident which, due to complications, led to the loss if his whole right leg and half of his pelvis. Undeterred by this 'annoying' loss he resolved to get back to normality.
Deciding to use this traumatic experience as an empowering motivator he became and engineer and riding instructor with The Bike Experience. A charity which teaches anyone with a disability to ride a motorcycle. An amazing organization that allows him to pass on his riding and technical experience and help those coming to terms with an injury or disability.
In 2014 William Swift joined Talan Motorsport Racing as a mechanic, and then as a racer in 2015 when the opportunity arose.
For the past two years he have been competing against, and beating the able-bodied motorcycle racers in The British Motorcycle Racing Club (or Bemsee). This culminated in 7th in class & 2 x 3rd podium finishes at the final Cadwell round of 2017.
Eager for a new challenge Will joins the RS Racing family and is looking forward to battling hard in the Golden Era Superbikes with Thundersport on his Honda VTR1000 SP2. He hopes to see you all track-side showing your support and ready for some high octane action.
