Dyce Carriers have announced that they’re going to be sponsoring Motocross star, Shaun Simpson’s latest venture, as he embarks on running and managing and his own team for the primary time.
Having been racing since childhood, Shaun Simpson became Scottish Motocross champion at just the age of 13 and participated in his first world championship just one day after finishing his final exams at the age of 16. He then became a three-time British Champion and has won four Grand Prix, also as representing Great Britain within the Motocross of countries.
After a problem series involving his bike caused his setbacks, Shaun decided that the simplest approach for moving forward was to strike out on his own and develop a team that raced his own way. In spite of his enthusiasm and determination to forge his path, the frightening task was finding the sponsorship for a replacement team.
Joining Shaun during a new partnership, managing directors of Dyce Carriers, Jason and Candie Moir, who also are passionate motocross fans, have stepped in to supply Shaun with the support he must strike out on his own.
Growing up, both Candie and Jason were fans of Shaun’s father, seasoned Moto-Cross Grand Prix racer, Willie Simpson. Back in 2012, they started personally sponsoring Shaun and since then became close friends, as they took holiday’s following Shaun round the international race circuit and bonding over the usually intense and visceral experiences that Moto-Cross can bring.
Setting out on this new prospect, Shaun said “I’m really excited to run my very own team and obtain back to what it’s all about, fixing the work, racing hard, and getting around the track within the fastest time possible”
“The support that Jason and Candie have given me has been incredible, without people like them, who are hooked into the game, none of this is able to be possible.”
Jason added that motocross had always been his passion, so they were very happy to help Shaun make his dream become true.
