LEOVINCE POWERS TEN RACE TEAMS AT THE TT - WITH THREE PODIUMS
June 22 2009.


This years international Isle of Man TT races proved to be an overwhelming success for LeoVince exhausts, and factory appointed importers MOTO.GB Distribution, with no less than 14 riders competing in the four main race categories - Supersport, Superstock, Superbike and the Senior TT - achieving 3 podiums and many awards.

Bruce Anstey riding for TAS-Relentless-Suzuki on a LeoVince equipped GSX-R600 achieved a 2nd place in the Supersport race,. The podium for the man-from-down-under was well deserved, as anyone who watched the TT will no doubt have seen that the TAS team were unlucky in many races with component failures forcing retirements.

Cameron Donald's TT racing came to to halt in the practice sessions when he crashed and sustained injury - but that was after smashing the TT lap speeds and setting an all-time high (average speed) of 131mph.

Anstey was closely followed by Scotsman Keith Amor in 3rd place in the Supersport race on his CBR600RR with Wilson-Craig-Racing. After a forced retirement in the Superbike race, Amor also managed a superb 3rd place in the Superstock race the next day on a Honda CBR1000RR. The TT was the first outing for Amor using a special prototype race exhaust developed by the LeoVince engineers just days before the TT.

Kent's BSB rider Steve Mercer won the "Highest Placed Newcomer" award for his efforts in the Superbike race, with a 25th place, riding for the newly formed 'thepeoplesbike.com' race team, run by Isle of Man businessman Mark Cubbon. Steve was riding a Suzuki GSXR1000, 2009 spec, with a full 4-2-1-2 LeoVince 'Corsa' race system.

Lancashire based Jackson Racing achieved some great results with Carl Rennie, with four finishes on Suzukis - a tribute to the reliability of Jackson Racing's bikes. Rennie's best placing was 5th place in the Senior race on a Suzuki GSXR750 with full titanium LeoVince exhaust fitted.

Flying in from the USA, Californian Mark Miller, who holds the fastest TT lap record for an American, achieved in 2007, and has 20 AMA podiums under his belt, achieved very respectable 11th and 12th finishes in the large capacity Superbike and Superstock races.

The man with years of TT experience, Adrian Archibald, was rewarded for his hard work by 4th place in the Senior race and 6th place in the Superbike race. Archibald was running a Suzuki GSXR1000, with LeoVince full race system and part sponsor support from TAS-Racing.

The TT race grids were full of other LeoVince teams....Ben Wylie, Wylie & Holland Racing, on Yamaha R1's and R6's....Chris Palmer riding for the WA.Corless-Jackson Racing team on GSX-R600's and GSX-R750's...Paul Shoesmith, Ice Valley-Speedfreak Racing riding a Yamaha R1... Andrew Ford,who enjoyed his first TT outing with 'thepeoplesbike.com' running a ZX6R equipped with LeoVince's carbon & titanium exhaust as used in the AMA series in the USA....Marc Fissette on the newly formed Macau-Racing on his Yamaha R1...Roberto Antonellini joined us from Italy with the REK-Opera team...etc.

Commenting on the TT, Bob Pearson of MOTO.GB Distribution, suppliers of LeoVince, said, "A fantastic two weeks of racing. The 37 mile TT circuit is a very hard circuit for riders and machinery and could not have been a better test for our exhausts. We would especially like to congratulate all the teams who used LeoVince - and for their faith in the product".
