Davy commented:

I want to start by thanking all my loyal sponsors, supporters and friends who made 2016 possible with their support, encouragement and sponsorship and hope they stay onboard for 2017. I am now one of the more experienced riders racing ‘between the hedges’, but I have lost none of my enthusiasm. I love racing motorbikes and I am already looking forward to racing on the roads in 2017. Even though we are a privateer team run on a very tight budget there will be no lack of effort, commitment and professionalism from myself or any member of the team in achieving success.

I have two excellent bikes at my disposal and the Angry Bee ZX10 Kawasaki and Magic Bullet R6 Yamaha will be as well prepared and competitive as any other privateer set-up. Getting bikes to actually race is just part of going road racing there is also the very real cost of running the team and bikes with transport costs, entry fees, race fuel, tyres, etc which all add up and with being a privateer team we are always looking for help in this respect. We are still short of our required budget for a full 2017 season so if there is an individual or business out there would like to get involved and partner the team with financial support and see their name or logo on our bikes please get in touch and we can talk to you and send you our 2017 Portfolio.

The GPFAX Formula Sintered Race pads are a direct replacement of the GPFA series. This formula is even higher in friction and created specifically to be used only on asphalt surfaces such as those found in race track conditions. Because of the super performance that they provide, these brake pads are a growing favourite choice of superbike racers.

Another benefit of the GPFAX sintered material is that it now has even better heat cycling ability allowing the brake pads to be raced, cooled, then raced again.

EBC floating MC rotors or X & XC brake disc rotors as they are sometimes known, are ultra lightweight, best selling and best performance discs available for all modern racing sport bikes. The rotors benefit from the EBC Brakes unique and patented S-Drive button system that features square sided rivets captured in square drive pockets on the hub and rotor. These are in place to allow the outer rotor blade to expand and contract freely under the heat of braking without suffering rivet lock.
