Indy Offer set to make Supermoto debut in Spain ahead of WorldSSP300 campaign
Indy Offer will compete in the opening round of the RFME Spanish Supermoto Championship at Albaida on the 11th and 12th July, 2020 for the Supermotoland Husqvarna Race Team. Riding an FS450 for the official Husqvarna team in Spain, Indy is entered in the asphalt only SM-road class.
Indy, who has never raced in Supermoto before, jumped at the opportunity to join the squad after training with them at Supermotoland during the off season, and knows how vital it is to sharpen his racing skills ahead of the FIM Supersport 300 World Championship beginning at Jerez at the end of July.
The Supermotoland Husqvarna Race Team and Race School are run by former British BSB GP125 front runner Mat Ford-Dunn who moved to Spain in 2002 and started racing Supermoto for fun and has never looked back. The Supermotoland Race School with its own private training track and onsite accommodation is the ‘go to’ motorcycle destination for anyone that wants to improve their bike skills and have a lot of fun and track time whilst doing it.

“Honestly I can’t wait. I loved riding with Mat and the guys at Supermotoland and learned a lot during my time at the Race School. When Mat mentioned the wildcard, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. It’s been tough to get any seat time in the UK because of the Coronavirus and even though I know many riders are in the same situation I need to give myself the best shot of a good first season on the world stage as it’s not going to be easy. There’s no pressure on me so I’m going there to have fun and improve every session. It’s not going to be like racing as I know it, but it is racing, which is the important thing. I want to thank Mat and everyone that has made it possible for me to enter – let’s go racing!”
Mat Ford-Dunn – Team Manager:
“Indy came to the Supermotoland Race School during the winter to help improve his road racing skills and clearly loved the training and benefits it gave him. It wasn’t long before he was back for a second visit and we could see the improvement. When the Coronavirus took hold Indy found himself struggling to find anywhere to ride the SSP300 bikes so now that lockdown is lifting and racing is returning it’s a race against time for Indy to gain as much track time as he can to prepare him for the WorldSSP300 championship. Indy is not afraid of a challenge and despite never having raced a Supermoto before, the Supermotoland Husqvarna Race Team was keen to have him join them as a wildcard rider for the first round of the Spanish Supermoto Championship. It will be a case of in at the deep end for Indy, but what better way to prepare for WorldSSP300 than bar bashing with Spain’s best Supermoto racers!”
