Motocross plays a huge part in the Banks family history, spanning three very successful generations.

It all started with the legendary John Banks, Elliott’s grandfather, whose talent has passed down through the generations

John was a house hold name in the 1960′s being crowned british champion four times and world runner up in 64′ and ’66, and a household name when motocross was played on the ITV every Saturday afternoon! Now its played on Sky EVERY day!

Johns sons, Mark and Justin, followed in their father’s footsteps into motocross with a great deal of success. Mark became 125cc british Moto cross champion and was runner up in the 250 british championship. He also competed on the world stage achieving 7th place, while Justin won several british schoolboy motocross championships

Elliott Has now taken up the challenge and many believe he has the potential to go one step further than his grandfather and win the world title for his team and his team partners

Elliott first became interested in motocross when his father was working as chief technician at Suzuki GB. He attended his first motocross meeting at only 5 months old and by the time he was just 6 years old, he was racing a Kawasaki automatic 50cc!

After winning all the local events elliott moved on to compete in the National British Schoolboy championships at the age of 12. After 3 years, in 2005 he became British Schoolboy Champion, matching the earlier success of his uncle Justin and gaining the support from the ‘Big Boys’ Honda UK!

Since then, Elliott has gone from strength to strength being a leading British championship contender, racing in the biggest International Events that both Europe and the UK has to offer as well as the world Grand Prix’s, a fantastic achievement for a 20 year old.

Having been involved with the biggest race teams in the UK Elliott has gone from strength to strength and his whole life now centres around racing to achieve the goals he and his team’s dream of – Championship wins.
