R&G has been appointed the Exclusive Crash Protection Supplier to Silverstone Track Days, dressing the bikes with top-notch, race-proven protection against inevitable accidents.

Silverstone Track Days operates a fleet of the latest crop of Yamaha YZF-R1 machines as instructor and marshal bikes, which will be fully kitted out with crash protection kits, consisting of Aero Crash Protectors, Fork Protectors, Swingarm Protectors, carbon fibre Tank Sliders, “Race Series” Engine Case Covers, “Cotton Reels” and Bar End Sliders.

R&G will be a full partner for all activities and promotional initiatives with this iconic circuit, as it looks to punctuate its already significant presence in the testing arena that is track days.

Representatives from R&G will also attend selected “Masterclass” sessions throughout the year, hosted by three-time British Superbike Champion, Niall Mackenzie, with a dedicated 3:1 pupil-to-instructor ratio.

Feedback from track days and track schools has long been a bedrock of R&D for R&G’s HQ, as part of its continuous improvement programme.

Simon Hughes, managing director at R&G, said: “To be closely associated with Silverstone Track Days is really exciting and will remind people of where we came from as a company, focusing first and foremost on crash protection for sportsbikes. We’ve learnt and developed a lot over that time, but you can never get too much feedback on your products, with a view to taking them to the next level.”

Donna Ibbott, head of motorcycling at Silverstone explained: “R&G was top of our list when looking to crash protect our fleet of Yamaha R1 instructor bikes. We look forward to working with the R&G team to showcase the wide array of products to our customers.”
