At just 26, Luke ‘Skywalker’ Mossey, already has many years of racing experience. He joins OMG Racing from the factory Kawasaki team, where he rejoins his former crew chief Johnny Gill and Ray Stringer as well as his former teammate Billy McConnell.
Luke has already claimed 11 championship wins including the British Minibike Championship, which he won every year between 1999 and 2003 – nothing like consistency eh?
Luke progressed through the 125cc bikes and onto the British Superstock 600 series where he turned professional in 2010 and entered the British Supersport Series, which he competed in until 2014. Mossey first entered the British Superbike Championship in 2015 and became part of Bournemouth Kawasaki where he won the BSB Riders’ Cup in his rookie year.
His big breakthrough came in 2016 however, where he broke into the top six, collected four podiums and earnt himself a place in the Showdown. Luke’s third season was one of mixed emotions. His first BSB win came at Race 1 at the Brands Hatch Indy track, and his second win quickly followed as he went on to win Race 2 as well.
Other podium places in the early part of the season saw Luke leading the Championship. However, a big fall in a practice session at Thruxton meant an injury hit end to the final part of the season and Luke narrowly missed out on a Showdown place.
When away from the circuit Luke is committed to his family and friends and can often be found relaxing with them. Approachable and down to earth, he’s popular in the paddock with fans of all ages and always makes time to share his enthusiasm for racing.
