Meara Brothers with the Moto-Cycle GasGas Racing team in 2024
The Moto-Cycle GasGas team have confirmed they will be retaining Jason Meara for the 2024 season after the young Irish rider had a strong season on a 350cc GasGas. During the course of the season he showed good speed and did enough to earn a spot on the Irish MXoN team at the end of the year and also raced the British MXGP round at Matterley Basin to make his GP debut. Meara will hope to improve and have an even better year in 2024.
Joining Jason will be his younger Brother, Jack. The team sponsored him in 2023 but have decided to take him on for the 2024 season which will see him make the move up to the 250cc with his full focus being put on the MXY2 British Championship in what will be his rookie season in the class.
Jack Meara: This year Clive (Huntley) and team sponsored me and helped me out over at the English races, I got to know them and we got on really well, So when I got asked to ride for Moto-Cycle in 2024 I was more than happy to and hopped on the opportunity straight away. It feels great to have signed with these guys as I know they are truly passionate about the sport and will always do what the can to help. It is definitely cool to be teammates with my brother Jason as it is something I always wanted to do from I was racing at a young age so finally that time has come. For 2024 I will move up to the 250cc where I will be putting full focus into the MXY2 British championship, it is year one on the 250cc so I will have lots of learning to do this off season and at the beginning of the season. I will work hard to work my way to the sharp end by the end off this year and the goal is to try and contend for the MXY2 title in 2025.
Jason Meara: 2024 is already coming around fast, I’m back again racing British championship with the Moto-Cycle squad on board a 350cc GasGas. For me it was a no brainer to stay with these guys, they are in the paddock for all the right reasons, they’re passionate and their enthusiasm towards the racing is unreal. When I go to the start line I get a fist pump or a thumbs up and told to have fun, when I come off the track it doesn’t matter if I’m first or last they have a smile on their face and that has really made this season enjoyable. I’ve been racing a long time now and I put enough pressure on myself to do well without having it coming from other angles. This season I’m going to work my ass off as I do every year to achieve the best results possible. I’m 26 now so I believe I am just coming towards my prime and I believe the best Jason is still to come. Alongside the British championship I will again race in the Pro fastest 40 championship (the old mx nationals) and for sure I will plan to do a few GP’s as I enjoyed it so much last year.
