1 of 1

The Anvil Hire TAG Racing squad have lifted the covers off the 2018 challenger James Ellison and Shaun Winfield will race in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship.

Having signed another year’s deal with plant hire firm Anvil Hire Ltd, the bike again features retro yellow and black Yamaha colours as well as the red of the Anvil Hire logo.

Ellison and Winfield will be on track tomorrow at Donington Park as the team looks to round out their winter testing programme before heading back to the Leicestershire track for the official test on March 20th and then again for the first round of the 2018 championship over easter weekend.

“We’re delighted to welcome back our great friends and partners from Anvil Hire once again for 2018 as title sponsors,” said team owner Rob Winfield.

“As a team we’ve enjoyed four fantastic seasons with them, culminating in almost winning the Championship for them in 2017.

“2018 is again a big year for us, it’s important that we kick on from our success last season. We’ll keep our feet firmly on the ground, go about our work quietly and continue to impress. Who knows, the small team from Swadlincote may just throw in another surprise once again.”

John Chambers of Anvil Hire added: “I’m proud to say Anvil Hire will once again be the title sponsors of the TAG Racing team in 2018. Last year was a brilliant year for us as a company, and the results the team produced heightened our success.

“The team has proved already they are ready to kick on in 2018, and we have no doubt they will once again be up there fighting for the Championship with James. Shaun improved vastly last year, and with the help of Chris Walker he’ll be higher in the standings come the end of the season we’re sure.

“We’re excited to see what 2018 will bring, and if last year is something to go by we’re sure it’s going to be a great one.”
