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 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 championship heads to Assen in two weeks time with Leon Haslam and Josh Brookes leading the championship points.
