The youth rider is competing in Bemsee’s Team Green Junior Cup

Rising motorcycle racing star, Luca Wilkinson, is competing in Bemsee’s Team Green Junior Cup race series for the 2024 season.

Wilkinson has chosen EBC Brakes’ GPFAX brake pads and X-Series discs (front) and HH pads and Contour discs (rear) on his Kawasaki Ninja 400 motorcycle for the season.

The Team Green Junior Cup – Part of the British Motorcycle Racing Club (‘Bemsee’) – allows riders between 13 and 18 years of age, providing a level playing field to illuminate the quality of the riders, not the investment in, or calibre of the machines they ride. To achieve this, the class is restricted to un-tuned production motorcycles.

Following a few ups and downs at the start of the year, Wilkinson really seemed to come into his stride in the latest round at Derbyshire’s Donington Park, as you can read in his team’s own words below.

“Round 4 saw us go to the spectacular Donington Park – another new track for Luca, but we had enlisted the awesome NW Racing to help learn the track on Friday morning with our mega instructor, Andrew Wales, booked for the afternoon. It was tough and Luca worked really hard learning the track, especially the section from Redgate to McLeans. Pleased with the pace, we were ready to go.”


“We had a target, and Luca absolutely smashed it, with his first ever qualifying pole position and 0.5 under the track record.”

Race 1:

“Got the holeshot, but this was no walk in the park. Beat the official track record with a blistering 1:21:920 and finished 2nd behind Zack – just in front of Kade Watt after a race-long battle which was cut short due to a red flag.”

Race 2:

“Great start and another race-long battle with Zack and Kade. Lost the lap record to Zack but gained the win – very happy with that.”

Race 3:

“Straight into the lead and Luca and Zack started to pull away. With a 1.8sec lead, it was looking comfortable until Luca lost the front in the last chicane and down he went, taking Zack with him so a disappointing DNF for both but no injuries and bikes fixable.”

Race 4:

“Despite the DNF, Luca and Zack were still 1 and 2 on the grid. The pace was a little slower this race which played into Luca’s hands as he settled in after the off in Race 3. Lots of place swaps ensued and with a bit of luck encountering the back makers on the last lap Luca, finished 1st.

“So, to summarise, we went from a DNF to PRETTY AWESOME! As always, thanks to all our sponsors and all the help we’ve had along the way.”
