It has been announced that rising star Leon Morris will have the opportunity to ride for the Red Bull Rookies at the final round of the national 125cc championship, at Donington Park, on September 28.

Morris was offered a wild-card ride with the Rookies earlier in the season, but missed out when the 125cc event at Rockingham was cancelled - but will now have a second chance.

The 16-year-old has been competing in the MRO series this season as well as entering some 125cc championship races. He attended the Rookie Academy Day last year and was chosen for the wild-card ride after further proving himself in 2003.

"The aim of the Red Bull Rookies is to provide opportunities for young and upcoming riders," explained team manager Robin Appleyard. "Leon is a talented rider and we felt that he deserved a wild-card ride."
