R&G has announced it will be remaining as an Official Supplier to the MCE British Superbike Championship for the 2017 season whilst adding to its paddock presence. This will be the Hampshire-based company’s third consecutive season supporting the series and will again see the popular Paddock Support Unit return, which will be selling race supplies, along with the Rookies’ Trophy and increased circuit branding.

The move will see the popular Paddock Support Unit remain in prime position, acting as a one-stop shop for riders looking for crash protection over the race meeting.

In addition to the Paddock Support service, there will be an increase in the R&G branding that adorns the trackside of all twelve MCE British Superbike rounds, whilst the R&G Rookies’ Trophy will be returning for a third year. Open to all riders competing in their first full season in any of the classes that make up the series, the Trophy continues to highlight and promote the efforts of the best new talent.

Alongside the Official Supplier status, R&G will again be supporting a number of teams and series within the paddock and will announce these within due course.

MCE BSB Series Director, Stuart Higgs, commented: "It’s fantastic to have R&G back for a third season, and especially to confirm for 2017 so early. R&G has been a fantastic asset to the paddock and continues to bring exciting and fresh products to our many competitors. Our joint promoted R&G Rookies award has also given the younger riders some welcome extra recognition. The R&G racing activities feed directly back to its road-going products, so the thousands of motorcyclists who attend MCE BSB every year can directly benefit from what they see happening on track.”

R&G UK Sales Manager Alan Garrett added: “Our first two years as Official Supplier to the MCE British Superbike Championship has been fantastic and we’ve really been able to benefit, not only in terms of commercial value, but also with the range of products we offer. Our latest product, the Moulded Lever Guard came directly from discussions with teams and riders and is a perfect example of the benefit we have been placed directly in the paddock.

"Racing has always been at the core of what we do at R&G and I’m looking forward to an even bigger and better 2017.”
