2017 will mark the third consecutive season that R&G has been an Official Supplier to the MCE British Superbike Championship and the Hampshire-based company has now unveiled its biggest ever lineup of supported teams and riders.

After two highly successful seasons as a partner to the Series, R&G will once again enter the MCE British Superbike Championship as an Official Supplier, which will see the popular Paddock Support Unit remain in prime position in the heart of the paddock, acting as a one-stop shop for riders at all twelve rounds.

In addition to supporting the series, R&G will be an Official Supplier to the Motostar Moto3 Standard class and Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup and has announced its biggest-ever line-up of supported teams and riders. In the blue riband Superbike class, R&G crash protection will be featured on the Anvil Hire Yamaha YZF-R1s of Josh Brookes and Shaun Winfield and the ZX-10Rs of Leon Haslam and Luke Mossey in the JG Speedfit Kawasaki squad, as well as Tommy Bridewell’s Team WD-40 machine, pictured above,  and James Westmoreland Gearlink Kawasaki. R&G will also be kitting out ex-MotoGP star John Hopkins’ Moto Rapido Ducati Panigale, the Lee Hardy Racing machine of Jake Dixon and Martin Jessop’s Riders Racing BMW. Be Wiser Ducati star Glenn Irwin will also be using R&G’s Aero Knee Sliders throughout the season.

Away from the Superbike class, R&G will also be supporting the Team WD-40 Superstock and Moto3 machines, Moto Rapido Moto3 rider Thomas Strudwick and the True Heroes Racing squad’s effort in the Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup and Superstock series. Elsewhere, countless riders throughout the paddock are making R&G their crash protection supplier of choice, ensuring the Company’s products can be spotted in every class – including on the sidecar of the Brian Gray Powerbiking Racing Team!

2017 will also see the R&G Rookies’ Trophy continue, with the aim of helping to raise the profile and support the stars of tomorrow. More details on the 2017 Trophy will be released shortly.

With R&G’s products being approved by the MCRCB, British Superbikes, MotoAmerica and AMA, its products can be found in race paddocks around the world and in 2017 R&G will be supplying the Yamaha R3 Cup series in Italy, supporting the Junior AG Italia Yamaha team, and also the Le Mans Sud Junior Suzuki Team World Endurance outfit.

R&G UK sales manager Alan Garrett added: “With just weeks until the 2017 race season kicks off, we’re incredibly excited to be announcing our supported riders and teams. Our biggest ever lineup. Our strong presence in the BSB paddock over the past few years has seen riders from every class get in touch over the winter looking to protect their machines with R&G products. Everyone knows track time is vital in racing, and our proven range of racing products can help a team get the bike back on track sooner.”
