Honda Racing have unveiled the colours that the Fireblade machinery of Dan Linfoot, Jason O’Halloran and Jenny Tinmouth will carry as the MCE British Superbike championship’s only manufacturer-backed team returns after their year-long sabbatical from the series.
Sitting out the 2014 season, the three-rider team returns this season with a heavily updated bike from the one Alex Lowes took the 2013 title on. The team hasn’t rested in their year out, either, continuing the development of the machine in anticipation of this year’s return.
Speaking at the team’s private test at Spain’s Monteblanco circuit, boss Havier Beltran commented: “It’s great to finally be able to show the new livery after keeping it under wraps for so long. We feel the new design works well and will really stand out on the grid. The riders were happy with their logos incorporated into the design and we’re excited to see them in action at the first round of the championship. “
