Hall replaces Hammel at Hooper Yamaha

The Rob Hooper Racing Yamaha team have signed talented teenager Lewis Hall for the 2021 season.

At just 18 years old, Hall already has three full seasons of Pro racing under his belt culminating in an MX2 moto win at the final round of the MX Nationals at Fatcat Motoparc.

Hall will join Sam Nunn in competing in the Revo ACU British Motocross Championship, the Michelin MX Nationals and the Bridgestone British Masters, and other selected domestic and international events.

“We are very excited that Lewis has joined the team”, said team boss Rob Hooper “we have a reputation of nurturing young British talent with our hands-on approach, and we feel we can help take Lewis’s career to the next level.  Lewis has already been working amazingly hard, and we have been impressed by his dedication to the sport. I would like to say a big thank you to Adam Kelly and Harry Mackenzie from Yamaha for their support and helping us bring Lewis to the team.”

Lewis said of the deal “I’m really happy to be signing with Rob Hooper Yamaha for the 2021 Season. They are a great group of people, and I am very grateful for the opportunity. I love the bike and feel at home on it straight away so I’m excited to get the season started and see what I can achieve!”.

Taylor Hammal, who has been with RHR for two years, has left the team for pastures new.

 “I am sad to see Taylor go of course,” said Rob, “but he has been offered a great opportunity to showcase his talents on the World stage, and we are fully supportive of him and his family who have been a pleasure to work with over the last couple of years. We wish Taylor all of the best for the future, and we look forward to following his progress.”
