JW Racing is delighted to announce our main sponsor for the 2016 racing seasonShoemaker Kennels and Cattery will become the main sponsor of the #76 motorcycle driven by John Ward for JW Racing for the 2016 pre-injection racing championship season.
Also assisting the team will be the Irish Parachute Club.I am honoured to have shoemaker Kennels and the Irish Parachute Club on board, and that they chose JW Racing to see what pre injection racing is all about. To have these amazing companies assist me in my first year’s competitive racing since 1995 is a dream come true.I will be competing in the Irish pre injection short circuit championship. My first race is at Mondello on the 20th March which will be my first race in 21 years.
 I will be riding an FZR600r.


The Irish Parachute Club (Skydive IPC) in Clonbullogue, Co Offaly where I work are also helping me out with my sponsorship,  If any of you are looking at raising sponsorship I have been authorised by the Irish parachute club to assist in fundraising, for example if you get 10 mates to do a sponsored parachute jump for you that works out at €2600 for your racing year. Please feel free to contact me on 0857123211 for additional details or come see me in the Paddock where I will have all the information with me.

Alternatively why not book yourself in for a tandem skydive, you'll be helping my sponsorship and yourself by crossing something off your bucket list! Please use his reference ‘John Ward’ when you make a booking!
