R&G race ahead with Quattro Plant Bournemouth KawasakiBy R&G in Superbike on on 26 January 2016

As the racing season edges ever closer, we thought it was about time to announce another of our 2016 teams…and we’re very pleased to be remaining with the Quattro Plant Bournemouth Kawasaki squad!

Luke Mossey and Filip Backlund will compete in the MCE British Superbike Championship whilst Andy Reid joins to campaign for glory in the British Supersport Championship. Sticking with the team once again will be Road Racing star James Hillier, who’ll compete across a number of classes at the North West 200 and Isle of Man TT. In an exciting first, R&G will also be supporting the team’s sidecar duo of Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood in the 2015 British Sidecar championship.

Long-time supporters of R&G, Bournemouth Kawasaki both distribute and fit a range of products from our range.

We’ve been with the Pete Extance run squad for a number of years and have enjoyed a considerable amount of success so we’re very pleased to be back with them for 2016. The Roads element of Quattro Plant certainly adds an exciting challenge and 2015 saw Hillier debut the R&G distributed SpeedAngle datalogger at the North West. Praising the device, he said “The SpeedAngle GPS datalogger is the perfect piece of kit for a racer or trackday rider. We fitted it to the Quattro Plant Kawasaki machines at the North West 200 and also to our Supertwin machine at the Isle of Man TT. It fitted really easily on every bike we tried and was mounted securely to the top yoke on the Superstock bike, which recorded a speed of 194mph!

What makes the SpeedAngle so unique is that unlike a normal datalogger it focuses on the rider’s performance and not just the bike. You can make real observations from the data on each particular corner and change your lines and riding style to suit. When analysing the data afterwards, we were able to compare the differing styles from the Superbike, Superstock, Supersport and Supertwin machines, which meant we could highlight some possible areas of improvement.”

We’re looking forward to seeing what the whole team can do for 2016, particularly with the all-new Kawasaki ZX-10R!
