R&G will become the official crash protection provider for the 2015 MCE British Superbike season, after a deal signed with oprganisers MSV to bring the Hampshire supplier into the paddock on multiple fronts.

In addition to providing discounted crash protection, they will also support the R&G Newcomers Trophy, which will run across all classes. On top of that, they’ll also have an on-site retail presence open to both teams and fans at every one of the twelve rounds.

BSB race director, Stuart Higgs, whose series mandates secondary engine covers to help prevent oil contaminating the track from a crashed bike, said: “R&G is a recognised and award-winning brand, focused on protecting motorcycles, ultimately saving riders money, and I’m really excited that we’ve been able to increase our working relationship within the MCE British Superbike Championship and also to cover MSV Trackdays.

“The cost of racing is never likely to drastically reduce, but we’ve seen many times that fitting top quality, strategically-placed protection can make a huge difference to a bike in a crash and reduce delays caused by oil spillages, particularly on track days.”

R&G managing director Simon Hughes added: “I’m delighted to reach this deal with MSVR and for R&G to become more closely aligned with such a prestigious championship that reflects the same values as our brand.  Racing is at the core of R&G and a large part of how we develop our expanding product ranges.  We’ve always invested back into the sport and this agreement with MSVR should only help to reinforce that.”
