Wall Mounted Weight Plates On Single Layer/Skin Brick Wall

Hi, so I am assessing if my exterior garage/outbuilding can support the weight of a wall mounted weight plate storage rack (See picture two for the rack), there would be two racks both weighing at 80KG~ when plates are fully loaded at two spread-out locations as marked in red, photo 1.

The wall is a single layer/skin, with columns in the centre and at each corners as in photo 1, with wooden beams on-top supporting the roofing.

Am I worrying about nothing and the wall can take the weight or is it a bad idea?
Is there any way to reinforce the wall or maybe use stringers to attach the rack to spread the stress? Open to ideas.

Thank your for your time, I am a novice at this so any advice is welcome.

What's on the other side of the garage wall, I'd be tempted to use bolts all the way through the brickwork with spreader plates on the back
i’d leave them on the floor and bend to pick them up. It’s good ecsercise.
