About Daley

Daley has an outstanding drive and determination to succeed at the highest level in his chosen career path in international motorcycle racing. From a modest beginning aged 12 racing an Aprilia RS125 at Elvington Race Track in Yorkshire, Daley now regularly competes semi-professionally at circuits at home, across Europe and as far afield as Macau in the People's Republic of China.

Routinely riding a variety of top-class machinery, including the sport's most modern and advanced Superbikes, he constantly seeks to learn and to improve his riding in order to fulfil his long-term ambition of becoming a professional motorcycle racer.

Early years

For a number of years Daley served his racing apprenticeship by riding at UK circuits such as Elvington, Teesside, Scarborough and Aberdare Park. In 2010 he relocated to Northern Ireland for two seasons to be fully immersed in the sport at the home of "Real Road Racing". His outstanding riding at such a young age earned him the prestigious award of "The Best Non-Irish Performance on the Irish Roads Series" by the Two-Stroke Racing Supporter's Club.

In 2012 Daley returned to the UK mainland, formed his own racing team and soon gathered around him a strong team with excellent support from major sponsors such as Michelin and Hol-Taj Exports, as well as from equipment and consumables suppliers.

Daley was delighted to make his Isle of Man Mountain Course debut at the 2013 Manx Grand Prix and his TT debut in 2014 with a fastest lap in excess of 120 mph.

Over several seasons a series of excellent results at road racing events followed which steadily built his reputation as a front-runner capable of making a strong challenge to the sport's top riders at both the national and international levels.

Recent achievements

With his performance and results improving alongside his increased riding and technical experience, Daley has progressively added to his portfolio of major achievements at international meetings. Of particular note are three TT podium finishes in the TT Zero class, winning the European MotoE Championship (twice), joining the "130 Club" at the Ulster Grand Prix, winning the Ulster Grand Prix Ultra Lightweight race, a fastest personal lap of the TT course in excess of 128mph and being a "seeded" top-20 rider in all 6 solo classes for the 2019 TT. These results have been supplemented by an increasingly regular series of wins and podium finishes at national meetings.

For the 2019 season Daley has secured rides with the prestigious Germany-based Wepol Racing by Penz13.com and the UK-based WH Racing in Partnership with Dynobike teams. With these teams he will be riding in the International Road Racing Championship (IRRC) across Europe, at the TT in all 7 solo races, at the Macau Grand Prix, at major international road racing meetings such as the Ulster Grand Prix and the North West 200, as well as at selected short circuit and BSB meetings on the UK mainland. His machinery includes bikes in the Superbike, Superstock, Supersport and Supertwin classes.
