Rider Profile

Craig Fitzpatrick is a calculated and determined rider who displays talent and skill far beyond his relatively short racing career. He possesses outstanding mechanical knowledge and bike set-up ability with an acute awareness of the requirements needed in the modern motorcycle racing paddock, qualities that would be a huge asset to any race team. Whilst Craig is an extremely focused individual he remains a very personable and marketable character, exactly the sort of individual that today’s sponsors are looking for.

To complement his racing passion Craig also instructs at motorcycle track days thus enabling him to pass on some of his vast skill and knowledge whilst providing him with valuable hours of track time for testing and practice without incurring the additional expenses normally associated.

Through out his career Craig has managed to reach heights beyond the limits of any privateer rider by out performing riders who have a vast budget. However the lack of sponsorship and a shoestring budget has hindered most of his seasons by having to miss rounds due to bike related problems that could have been solved with a larger budget. Craig has done the best to his ability in all seasons with what resources he had.
