Welcome to Kyle Smith Racing. Kyle Smith was born in Huddersfield England in 1991. His family moved to Spain when Kyle was 7 and it was here that Kyle’s two-wheeled career took off with his first love, Motocross. Kyle rose quickly through the Schoolboy MX ranks eventually becoming Valencia State Champion at the age of 12.
At this time Kyle was offered the chance to try road racing in the Bancaja Cup and he has never looked back! Kyle won the CEV Kawasaki Ninja Cup before progressing to the CEV Stock Extreme Championship where he finished runner up. His strong performances in 2012 earned him a place in the 2013 Blusens Avinitia Moto2 team however problems with the team’s finances meant that Kyle and team-mate Toni Elias were not able to complete the season.
Kyle was offered a place with Agro-On Racedays Honda for the last 3 races of the European Superstock 600 Championship and quickly gelled with the bike and team, scoring a dominant victory at the final Jerez round. For 2014 Kyle remained with the Agro-ON WIL Racedays team for a season in the ultra-competitive FIM Superstock 1000 Cup, campaigning the venerable Honda CBR 1000 RR SP. Despite being the oldest bike on the grid Kyle was able to capitalise on the Fireblade’s superior handling to bring Honda its best results for several years in the Superstock 1000 class, including podiums at Aragon and Jerez.
Kyle’s talent had not gone unnoticed in the World Superbike paddock but despite several offers from rival manufacturers Kyle chose to remain with Honda. This faith has not gone unrewarded and he is delighted now to have been chosen to pilot the 10 x World Champions – Ten Kate Racing, Honda CBR 600RR in the official PATA Honda FIM World Supersport team.
Kyle lives in Benissa, Calpe on Spain’s Costa Blanca. His hobbies include surfing, downhill mountain biking, motocross, rock climbing, snorkelling and guitar. He has a long term partner Sandra who is a specialist dive-paramedic and also owner of a restaurant in Calpe old town.
Kyle is sponsored personally by Bikekini motorcycle covers, PATA Chips, SL Grafics and CV Graphics. For highest protection in his high-speed career Kyle chooses HJC Helmets, Macna race suits and Forma boots.
