2008. Team Aspar sign Kyle up for the new season to compete in the nations CEV Buckler 125cc championship with a view to moving up then to world championship level the following year.
But unfortunately an accident ruled Kyle out for a lot of the season, breaking his Pelvis twice.
Team Aspar excluded Kyle from the CEV national team due to the countries credit crunch and also breaking his pelvis twice in one season didn’t help,!
So a new race series was needed.
