2015 saw the team have their best season to date both in BSB and at the Isle of Man TT races. Young rookie, Luke Mossey had a tremendous debut Superbike season. He achieved two podiums and secured the Riders’ Cup for his 7th place overall finish in the Championship. Over in the IOM TT, James Hillier also had 3 podiums.
In 2016, the team expanded to include Swedish Superbike rider, Filip Backlund and Northern Irish Supersport Rider Andy Reid. The team also included the British Sidecar Champions from 2015, Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood.
While Backlund and Reid had injury hit seasons, Mossey continued his impressive form from 2015 and broke through into the Champions Showdown in just his second season in BSB.
He finished 6th overall. Stevens and Charlwood also continued their run of form in 2016. They podium in every round and went on to clinch their second Championship.
2017 looks set to be an exciting year. Under new sponsorship, JG Speedfit Kawasaki, the team brings on board Leon Haslam. Haslam was runner up in the Championship in 2016, narrowly missing out to Shane Byrne. He will race alongside teammate Luke Mossey. They will both be fighting it out for the Championships. Stevens and Charlwood will look to defend their Sidecar Championship for the second time. Maria Costello & Kirsty Hauxwell also join the F2 Sidecar Championship – the only all-female team in the competition.
