Son of Andy Molnar - the hugely experienced Manx Norton builder, engineer and racer - Richard has raced a plethora of classic motorcycles since 2014 as well as riding in the UK Thundersport series on a CB500. With success in numerous classes, and having raced, and won, at the Phillip Island Classic earlier this season, the mechanical engineering student now gets to sling a leg over the Satchwell Racing team entry. Richard's most recent success came just last weekend at the Donington Park classic motorcycle festival where he won five races and achieved three further podium finishes, including taking the win in the ACU500 race, setting the outright 500cc lap record into the bargain.

Satchwell Racing dates back to the seventies when Peter Satchwell started racing. He used to ride Nortons and Triumphs back then. He went on to running a Harris Performance Kawasaki in the Formula One series along side the likes of Barry Sheene In 1980 Satchwell Racing sponsored a rider called Kevi Wrettom at the Isle of Man,he was running 3rd in the senior TT when the gearbox exploded. Kevin went on to ride in the Grand Prix scene and was widely tipped to be the next world champion. Sadly he passed away in an accident years later. Satchwell Racing was again back on the science when Chris Satchwell started racing in 1995 at club level. 1996 saw him enter British Thunderbikes on a Honda 600 learning his craft. 1997 they went to British Superbikes on a Suzuki 750 where he finished 22nd overall on a privately entered machine. Sponsored by D&K Motorcycles in Newcastle. Last year Chris rode at Thundersport GB on the same machine for old times sake. Picked up the bug again and this year changing machines to a Honda CB500,in the senior championship and finished 3rd.
