Ray started his international career back in 2008 when he competed in several seasons of the Red Bull Rookies Cup, followed by the ever-popular Spanish CEV Moto3 and Moto2 Championships. However, it was when Ray returned to his national British Superbike Championship series that his talent became even more evident. In 2022, while riding a Yamaha R1, he was crowned British Superbike Champion with nine wins and 14 podiums, securing himself a step up to the world stage the following season.
In 2023 the 26-year-old from Lydd in the United Kingdom made his World Superbike debut with Yamaha, riding for the Yamaha MotoxRacing WorldSBK Team. Although only contracted to contest the European rounds and struggling with his physical condition part way through his rookie season, Ray showed his potential on several occasions. This prompted Yamaha Motor Europe to retain his services for 2024, racing once again with MotoxRacing, but this time entering all 12 rounds on the provisional calendar.
After taking time to overcome injury in his first year, as well as getting to grips with the new championship and new circuits, the ever positive Ray is keen to show what he’s capable of as he contests his first full season in the series and his second aboard the MotoxRacing Yamaha R1.
