Team News: WRBF-Racing announces 2019 CSBK Lightweight plans

WRBF-Racing News: We are pleased to announce that Avery Hart and Keegan Gaudet will be competing in the 2019 Canadian Mopar CSBK Amateur Lightweight Sport Bike Series, aboard their World Renowned Baddeck Facility- Racing (“WRBF -Racing”) prepared Yamaha R3 ‘s.  We have assembled an experienced and talented team to coach Avery and Kegan and to prepare and maintain the competitive Yamaha.  This 2019 season, under the “WRBF- Racing” banner and founder Paul Whitehead, we are looking forward to new challenges, learning different tracks and hopefully making Avery and Keegan National Road-Racing Champion (s).  We are also very pleased to have on our team Gary McKinnon; a 2016 inductee into the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame, with almost 50 years of road racing experience. 

Avery Hart is a 26 year old from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.  Avery has been involved in and has enjoyed all measures of motorcycling from a very young age.  In 2017 he finished 2nd overall in the ARL Light Weigh Super Sport (“LWSS”) Division and 3rd overall in the ARL Dealers LW 300 Division; aboard his Kawasaki Ninja 250.  That same year, Avery had a 4th place showing at the CSBK Round 4, in the Invitational LWSS Division.  In 2018 Avery dominated the sARL LWSS Atlantic Division, winning the regional  championship by more than 40 points and again taking 3rd overall in ARL Dealers LW 300 Division. That same year would also see Avery win his first National podiums in the CSBK by winning 1st and 2nd place podiums in Round 4.

Keegan Gaudet is a 16 year old from Tyne Valley, Prince Edward Island. Keegan started road racing in 2016 at the age of 13 and finished 3rd overall in the sARL LWSS 250 division, in addition to earning the sARL “Rookie of the Year” and the “Most Talented Rider Award”.  In 2017, as the result of several injuries Keegan was unable to complete the entire race season but consistently finished in the top three. Keegan, in 2018 was able to lock down 3rd place overall in the sARL LWSS Division standings. Most impressively, Keegan won his first National race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Bowmanville, Ontario at CSBK Round 5, 2018. This was his first National race, his first National podium and his first time seeing that track. Keegan is looking forward to racing this year and eventually hopes to compete in the MotoAmerica National Series.
