Buckinghamshire-based MSG Racing has been an established name in the motorcycle racing paddock for almost two decades, covering various large national series with some very well-known riders over the years.
Campaigning mainly in the Thundersport GB championship for 2021, the outfit will once again use EBC Brakes’ high-performance discs and pads on its trio of race-prepped Suzuki GSX-R 1000 machines, ridden by Chris Curtis, Sam Osborne and Will Harper.
The team give us a brief history of their successes in their own words below.
“MSG Racing formed as a race team in 2002, alongside Gavin Reed’s then-small motorcycle repair business, working from home since 1999.
“From national club racing to British Superbikes as well as racing in Spain, Gavin set out to help chosen riders on the way to achieve their racing dream, leading to over 50 club championships and some of the lads moving on to British Superbikes and the Isle of Man TT.”
“Today’s riders are all established MSG-supported riders and have been working with the team for several seasons now. All three are racing the latest model Suzuki GSX-R 1000 machines prepared and maintained by MSG Racing. For 2021, we have Chris Curtis, Sam Osborne and Will Harper in the 1000cc GP1 class with Thundersport GB. We are all looking forward to the season ahead and working with EBC and their great braking products.
“Full team members are Will Harper, Chris Curtis, Sam Osborne, John ‘Snowy’ Chapman and Gavin Reed, along with much appreciated support from others both on and off track.
“Back at the workshop, race prep and dyno tuning is carried out by Gavin and Daniel Diamond (also a racer himself when possible).
“None of what we do would be possible without the help of some amazing working partners. Bring on the 2021 race season and let’s add to the championship tally…”
