It was a brilliant weekend for Eazi-Grip™ supported teams as they dominated the standings in BSB, WSBK and at the Bol d’Or 24-Hour Race.

 

The Milwaukee Aprilia team headed to Portugal for Round 10 of the WSBK championship this weekend.  Eugene Laverty and Lorenzo Savadori had their best Superpole results of the 2017 season so far at Portimao taking P2 and P3 on the grid.  The team had shown promising pace all weekend and were consistently within the top ten in Free Practice. Both riders delivered in the pole shootout session, with blistering laps that put them on the front row together for the first time and behind only series leader Rea.

 

Eugene Laverty:

Race 1: Grid P2, Finish P7

Race 2: Grid P4, Finish P4

Lorenzo Savadori:

Race 1: Grid P3, Finish P8

Race 2: Grid P5, Finish P6

The Honda World Endurance Team kicked off for the 2017/2018 FIM Endurance World Championship at the Bol d’Or 24-Hour race with a dramatic 3rd place finish completing 673 laps covering 4,000 km over 24 hours.  The team line up for the 2018 season will feature Gregory LeBanc, Sébastien Gimbert and Yonny Hernandez.  The team return to France next year for the 24 Heures Motors in April where they look to continue their championship push.

Meanwhile, back in the UK the MCE British Superbike Championship Showdown got underway at Oulton Park with Eazi-Grip supported riders dominating the podium rostrum in both Race One and Race Two with JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider Leon Haslam topping the podium in the rain soaked opening race of the day.  The action-packed Race Two ended in dramatic fashion with Haslam and Dan Linfoot crossing the line side by side with the Honda Racing Rider taking the win by 0.05 seconds.  The championship heads to Assen in two weeks time with Leon Haslam and Josh Brookes leading the championship points.

Success at Cadwell Park

2017 British Superbike Championship, BSB R08, Cadwell Park, Lincolnshire, UK. 20th August 2017. Leon Haslam, Smalley, JG Speedfit Kawasaki

It was a great weekend for Eazi-Grip supported riders and teams at Round 8 of the British Superbike Championship at Cadwell Park.  The weekend saw supported teams top the podium in both Race 1 and 2.  Eazi-Grip™ tank grips play an important role for riders at this physically demanding circuit who need that extra bit of grip with its sharp gradient changes, long fast curves and tricky hairpins, not to mention the mountain section where the bikes go airborne!

With only 3 races left and 75 points up for grabs before the showdown begins, 9 riders are fighting it out for the top six places in the showdown with 7 of those riders being Eazi-Grip™ supported.  We couldn’t be happier to have some of the best riders and teams in the country using and testing our products!

Race 1

  1. Leon Haslam – JG Speedfit Kawasaki

Race 2

  1. James Ellison – McAMS Yamaha
  2. Lee Jackson – Smiths Racing BMW
  3. Peter Hickman – Smiths Racing BMW

Congratulations to Lee Jackson on his first podium and new lap record!

Success at Thruxton for Eazi-Grip™ supported riders

2017 British Superbike Championship, BSB R07, Thruxton, Hampshire, UK. 6th August 2017. Peter Hickman, Louth, Smiths Racing, Josh Brookes, Australia, Anvil Hire TAG Racing, Jake Dixon, Dover, Royal Air Force Regular & Reserve Kawasaki

 

The 7th round of the 2017 British Superbike Championship was held at the fast and abrasive Thruxton circuit.  The Hampshire circuit never disappoints to host some of the best racing of the season.  As this circuit is only used a few times a year it is a great testing ground for our Eazi-Guard™ stone chip protection.

Eazi-Grip™ supported riders once again topped the timesheets in both Race 1 and 2.  Anvil Hire TAG Racing’s Josh Brookes took the top step of the podium alongside Peter Hickman of Smiths Racing with 7 supported riders finishing in the top ten.  Race 2 saw eight supported riders finishing within the top ten with Peter Hickman on the top step of the podium and Leon Haslam of JG Speedfit Kawasaki finishing in third.  With only 5 races left at Cadwell Park and Silverstone before the showdown begins at Oulton Park in September the points chase is close.  Eight Eazi-Grip™ supported riders are battling it out for the top six places to fight for the title in the final three events.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to the friends and family of Mark Fincham of the True Heroes Racing team.  A true hero who will be missed by all of the racing paddock.

Eazi-Grip™ rises to the top in BSB season opener at Donington Park

 

2017 British Superbike Championship, BSB R01, Donington Park, Leicestershire, UK. 2nd April 2017.  Leon Haslam, Smalley, JG Speedfit Kawasaki, Luke Mossey, Cambridge, JG Speedfit Kawasaki

Eazi-Grip™ had a positive start to the British Superbike season with a podium sweep in Race 1 at the Leicestershire circuit with Leon Haslam taking victory in both races and eight supported riders finishing in the top ten in both race one and two.  Race one saw Haslam joined by his JG Speedfit teammate Luke Mossey on the second step of the podium followed by Tyco BMW’s Christian Iddon.  After a great battle for the final podium spot, Race two saw Haslam taking the top step of the podium once again joined by Anvil Hire Yamaha’s Josh Brookes in second position. 

The reigning Supersport Champion Tarran Mackenzie also took home his first piece of silverware for the McAMS Yamaha team winning the first race of the 2017 season.  Eazi-Grip™ supported riders had great success in many of the support classes as well and we look forward to seeing everyone back on track in 2 weeks at Brands Hatch.

Mistral Racing at the Classic TT

Dan Kneen at the Top of Barregarrow

 

The 2016 Classic TT races will probably most be remembered as one of the most controversial in years.  Despite the results we see it as yet another opportunity to test out our products on a range of bikes and hope that the powers that be can work out their differences to continue on with such a great event.  The Classic TT has grown in numbers and has evolved from a showcase of classic machinery to a full fledged competitive race resulting in lots of “grey areas” in the rule book. 

This year we sponsored the Mistral Racing Team of Jamie Coward, Dan Kneen and Steve Mercer piloting  ZXR750 Kawasaki’s.  The bikes were protected with Eazi-Guard™ stone chip protection and fitted with Eazi-Grip™ tank grips.  We cannot thank Ian Harrison and the team enough for all of their feedback.

“Eazi-Grip™ got the big thumbs up from all the riders, making it less tiresome for them to ride, Jaime who has ridden the bike for 4 years now said it was far better to ride when fitted. There is not a mark on the paintwork all all where the Eazi-Guard™ is fitted. It really does a great job and does a great job blending in with the paintwork making it unobtrusive.”

Eazi-Grip™ and Eazi-Guard™ put to the test in 2016

With the 2016 Road Racing season coming to a close, we can’t thank all of our sponsored riders and teams enough for their support of our products.  This season our products have been put to the test and have ended up on the podium at almost every event. 

Eazi-Guard™ is proving itself as a must have product at every road race to protect not only the bodywork but also fork legs and swing arms on the bike and even riders helmets.  At the 2016 Isle of Man TT our stone chip protection tape was not only used to protect the bikes but also used on the on-board cameras, to help prevent the lenses from cracking around the 37.33mile course, helping to prove how durable our product really is.  

We have made strides with Eazi-Grip™ making it a stronger product than ever before.  We are currently working on developing a Silicone Grip to line up next to our Evo and Pro grips for 2017. 

The Eazi-Grip™ Team will be at Intermot during the week of October 3-9th showcasing all of our products.  Feel free to stop by and check out whats new in the UK Pavillion Hall 8.

Success for Eazi-Grip™ at Snetterton

There were mixed emotions and mixed fortunes for all of the Eazi-Grip™ sponsored riders at Snetterton.  Honda Racing Team’s Jason O’Halloran had his first win on board his Honda Fireblade while Dan Linfoot had 2 second place finishes moving them to 3rd and 4th in the Championship respectively.

Tyco BMW’s Christian Iddon fought through a tough weekend after injuring his index finger earlier in the week.  The ever changing weather and an incident in Race 1 caused the Stockport rider to finish just out of the points in 19th.  The red flagged Race 2 saw Iddon climb through the field to finish the race in 6th after starting the race in 14th.  Christian Iddon leaves the Norfolk circuit 5th in the Championship ahead of the next round at Thruxton.

The Quattro Plant Kawasaki team of Luke Mossey and Filip Backlund had a weekend of up and downs with Mossey crashing out in the early laps of Q1 and Backlund making progress having a strong qualifying performance and making it into Q2 for the first time this season.  Race 1 saw Mossey finish the 16 lap race in 7th after starting from 28th on the grid while Filip Backlund gained his first points of the season in 15th.  Mossey was on course for another strong finish when in Race 2 he had a braking issue causing him to run off track finishing the race in 13th.  Team-mate Backlund finished the hard fought Race 2 in 18th.  Luke Mossey is currently 10th in the Championship.

Snetterton proved a positive weekend for the Eazi-Grip™ team who are pleased to extend sponsorship to the THM ePayMe Yamaha team.  The THM Motorsport will be using Eazi-Guard™ to protect their R1’s at Thruxton.  Also back on board this season is Howie Mainwaring Smart of Smiths Racing BMW.  We look forward to Round 6 of the MCE British Superbike Championship at Thruxton,  July 22-24.

Solid test for Eazi-Grip™ & Eazi-Guard™ Honda Racing ahead of the North West 200

With the North West 200 and Isle of Man TT road races fast approaching, Eazi-Grip & Eazi-Guard sponsored John McGuinness and Conor Cummins have been in action this week with a two-day test at Castle Combe in Wiltshire, in preparation for the start of their road-racing season.
The first day of the test saw the Honda squad greeted with mixed weather conditions, but in-between the snow and rain showers the team were able to gain good track time. Wednesday saw a full day on track, where McGuinness and Cummins were able to try different settings on their Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP machines.
Working closely with Dunlop throughout the two days both riders tested different tyre compounds, electronics and suspension options to fine-tune settings for the forthcoming North West 200 (10-14 May).
The Castle Combe outing is one of many official Honda tests this year that has seen McGuinness reunited with his 2015 Senior TT winning Fireblade and the circuit gives a good direction for road racing tests, due to its bumpy nature. The ‘Morecambe Missile’ proved he is still the man to beat at the TT on the CBR, after smashing the outright Senior lap record with an 132.701mph lap last year.
Team-mate Cummins enjoyed being back aboard his Fireblade working through different settings and had consistent lap times at the 1.85-mile circuit. The Manxman has enjoyed previous success at the North West 200, where in 2014 he was on the Superbike podium and hopes to be again this year.
The 2016 North West 200 takes place in two weeks time on 10-14 May, which sees McGuinness and Cummins competing for Honda Racing in the two Superbike races on Saturday 14 May. The NW200 is one of the world’s fastest road races and the 8.970-mile course forms a triangle between the Northern Irish coastal towns of Coleraine, Portrush and Portstewart.
