Guy Martin and Wilson Craig team up with Leo Vince
Guy Martin and his Wilson Craig Honda team have linked up with Italian exhaust manufacturer Leo Vince.
The company worked with the Wilson Craig team during 2008 and 2009 when Scotsman Keith Amor achieved third place in the in Supersport and Superstock 2009 TT races, as well as 20 other podium finishes on the roads throughout 2009.
This year the Wilson Craig team have signed Guy Martin and will again be running Honda machinery in all three classes with the bikes built by the Parkalgar Honda crew – the same team that run Eugene Laverty and Miguel Praia in World Supersport with engines tuned by Chris Mehew.
Martin though will oversee the builds which will be built to his exact specification and he said of the Italian exhaust systems the team will use: “Now then boss, LeoVince exhaust, a proper work of art, wouldn’t go amiss in Saachi art gallery.”
The team will use the latest Leo Vince “SBK-Corsa” systems, developed and tested by the over the past season and featuring a lightweight all titanium 4-2-1 configuration to match the engine builds – and the same specification that helped Leon Haslam to many podium finishes in WSB during 2009.
raig said: “For 2010 we have the best of everything… the best bikes, the best build, the best engines, the best exhausts, the best rider.”
