Casey O Gorman has always loved motorbikes from a very young age. He first rode a motorbike when he was 3yrs 2weeks. Even then he showed a natural ability & soon began riding at the Scott Redding Academy in December of 2011. He stood out immediately and was placed in the fast group straight away. Scott told his parents that he could feel talent in Casey & that they should encourage him in his riding. Casey attended every academy that winter (involving a 300 mile, five hour drive) until the outdoor season started, giving him the opportunity to do some practice days with CoolFab. Here he was able to run a fast pace and lap other riders but was still over a year too young to race.
In June 2012 John, Casey’s father, took him to a practice day at Angmering, West Sussex. The owner spotted Casey and invited him back the next day to race. Casey was at the front straight away, getting second place on his first outing. He repeated this result when he came back a month later for the next round. In July, the family travelled to Ireland where Casey did a round of the Irish Championship. He got two second places in a row, then got his first ever win in the third race. After getting caught up in traffic following a decent start, Casey had sat in second, right on the leader’s tail until the last corner where he dived up the inside to cross the line first.
He continued winning on his return to Angmering, winning the summer 2012 Cadet Minimoto.
