Another home BritishGP done…and what a weekend it was.
Nearly 12 months after our last home round, and first restriction-free trip to
Silverstone since COVID-19, it was fantastic to be able to freely catch up with Riders, Teams and Fans alike!
We were treated to some unbelievable weather, incredible racing and a brilliant atmosphere – we couldn’t have asked for more!
Our home round has also given us a unique opportunity to conduct some on track Research and Development. With all-new 'Special' Race level parts to be added to our stock range soon!
