We’ve got some great results to report from the 2014 MSE Insurance British Superbike Race Weekend, with our sponsored teams battling it out at the top of the leader board.
We sponsor two great teams: one in the superbike class, the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki team with world-class riders Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne and Stuart Easton; and another team in the supersport class called Mar-Train Racing, with rider Alastair Seeley.
At Oulston weekend on 3rd-5th May 2014, the superbike team had a stormer with Shane Byrne coming in first and second and Stuart Easton fifth and fourth. It’s a challenging track with lots of changing gradients and blind crests but the Kawasaki riders made it look easy. Unfortunately Alastair Seeley had a big crash in race one on the Saturday, but brought it back to take second in race two.
Shakey Byrne continued his success at the next race weekend on 13th-15th June on the Snetterton 300 track by winning race two where he already held the MCE BSB Lap Record. But it was unlucky for Stuart Easton who ended in 13th place.
This leaves the MCE Insurance BSB Standings looking very healthy for team Kawasaki with Shakey Byrne way out in the lead – 45 points clear of James Ellison who sits in second on 100 points. Stuart Easton is just shy of the showdown zone in seventh place, but there’s not much between the racers in fifth to seventh place, so this could all change.
The supersport standings are also looking great for rider Alastair Seeley who is currently in fourth place with 81 points. But again there’s not much to split them with G. Gowland only on 86 points in second place.
The next race weekend is on 27-29th June at Knockhill where Byrne holds yet another track record. Click here to book your tickets.
We provide all of our sponsored teams with premium titanium fasteners for their superbikes, because they need the lightest strongest bolts possible. If you want to get your bike running like the pros’ and never have to struggle undoing a nut or bolt again, as titanium is completely rustproof, then take a look at the titanium bolts in our online shop, or give us a call on 01179 654 654 to talk to our sales team.
