As the countdown to the 2018 season continues, a number of leading Bennetts British Superbike teams unveiled their contenders for the year ahead at the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show.
Ahead of the show opening on Thursday, Buildbase Suzuki unveiled the 2018 colours Bradley Ray and Richard Cooper will field as they look to enjoy a more consistent season with a year’s development now behind the new Suzuki GSX-R.
That was followed by a second Suzuki unveiling as new-to-the-grid for 2018 OMG Racing lifted the covers off Gino Rea’s GSX-R, which features a special luminous paint that glows when lit up.
The FS3 Racing team also uncovered the 2018 ZX-10RR Danny Buchan will campaign in Bennetts BSB while Lee Jackson joins the team in the Superstock 1000 class.
Leon Haslam and Luke Mossey’s JG Speedfit Kawasaki team unveiled their largely unchanged 2018 livery, while Josh Brookes McAMS Yamaha squad lifted the covers off a striking blue, black and red YZF-R1 for the Aussie and new team-mate Tarran Mackenzie.
The MotoRapido Ducati of Taylor Mackenzie was also present at the show on the R&G Racing stand.
The 2018 Bennetts British Superbike Championship kicks off at Donington Park between 31st March and 2nd April, but ahead of that winter testing kicks off in Spain from March 1st with testing concluding at the official Donington Park test on March 20th.
