After a successful Practice day on Tuesday for Eazi-Grip Supported Riders and Teams, Thursday proved to be even more entertaining at The North West 200!
Supersport Race 1 saw Lee Johnston gain a fantastic victory followed by Dean Harrison and James Hillier! All three top riders were using Eazi-Grip Tank Grips aswell as Silicone Engineering Racing being fitted with our Custom Fit Eazi-Guard Paint Protection!
Supported Rider Glenn Irwin for JG Speedfit Kawasaki also provided us with a fantastic display of racing, gaining a podium place behind Peter Hickman in the Superstock race.
We wish all of our supported teams and riders the best of luck for the final day of the North West 200 tomorrow!

The Eazi-Grip team visited Silicone Engineering Racing yesterday, providing the team with Eazi-Grip Tank Grips and our Approved fitter Justin was with us from Armour Factory fitting all the motorbikes with Eazi-Guard Motorcycle Paint Protection!
We had the pleasure of speaking with Dean Harrison about Eazi-Guard and asked him why he wants it on his bike!
“as you can see from the weekend at Oulton we ended up going through the gravel which wasn’t planned, and you can see how it protected all the swing arm” Dean Harrison – Silicone Engineering Rider
Dean highlighted that they use Eazi-Guard Motorbike Paint Protection not only for the fairings and the front of the bike, but also on the swing arm! We also discussed why Eazi-Guard is essential on the motorbike with Silicone Engineering Team Manager, Paul Iddon.
“They get peppered with all the stones and debris off the public roads, obviously at the speed that they go! At times it’s like they have been shot with a shot gun, they come back with holes in the screens. By putting Eazi-Guard obviously on the obvious areas on the front of the fairings, it protects the paint work which is quite expensive to have done anyway. We also put it on everything that has a leading edge, the fork leg, bottom of the fork legs, the mud guard… anything that you can see we use the tape that you supply.”
Paul Iddon – Team Manager
We had a great time up at Silicone Engineering, both Dean and Paul focus on the paint protection that our Eazi-Guard Stone Chip Protection provides to their custom paint work which can be extremely expensive to repair. We wish them all the best at their upcoming races and especially for the Isle of Man TT!

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.
Race 1: Grid P2, Finish P7
Race 2: Grid P4, Finish P4
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.

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