Dominic Doyle, the 19-year-old who finished runner-up in the 2020 MotoAmerica Junior Cup Championship, is moving up to MotoAmerica Supersport in 2021.
That’s the word from Colin Barton, owner of Doyle’s BARTCON Racing team.
“Knowing that the next step in Dominic’s career had to be, at minimum, a Supersport ride, I was left with the harsh reality of having to figure out if BARTCON Racing could even afford to go [racing with] MotoAmerica in 2021 or if I would possibly have to find another team to take this talented young South African boy who had spent the last couple of seasons growing up and growing on the entire BARTCON Racing crew,” Barton stated in a press release. “To be honest, the thought of Dominic riding for any team other than BARTCON this season was the driving force of pushing me to find a package that would work for everyone involved.
“I am now delighted to announce that Dominic will be racing in the MotoAmerica Supersport class for the 2021 season aboard his BARTCON Racing Kawasaki ZX-6R.
“I cannot thank the other people involved [who] have been instrumental in getting us to the where we are today. Dr. Mark Dekutoski of Coastal Neurosurgery and Spine is a huge part of helping the team get over the biggest hurdle of having the funds so the team can go into the season ready to give it 110% across the board.
“Another big thanks to both crew chiefs: Mike Skowroneck, of Triple Strong Racing, and Dustin Apgar, of Ghilliman Racing, who never stopped working with Dominic during the offseason. [And] the team Transport & General Manager, Uncle Pete Fitzpatrick.”
In his press release, Barton said Doyle’s performance during a pre-season test at Jennings GP, in Florida, convinced him and his team to also enter Doyle in the 79th Daytona 200, an ASRA SportBike race that is scheduled March 13 at Daytona International Speedway.
