Two more podium challenging rides from Ed Rendell

Why not keep up with the team on Facebook for the very latest up to date news and what happens

Ed Rendell gave the massive crowd and TV audiences around the world two stunning performances that kept us all on the tips of our toes as he again put in two podium challenging rides. The racing was so close with Ed just 0.3 of a second from a podium finish in race one and 0.5 of a second off in race two.Things may have been different if Ed had not struck trouble in qualifying when a quick shifter failure stopped the bike out on track leaving him down the starting grid in thirteenth place. A front row start was on the cards after finishing second and fourth in the free practice sessions held on the Friday but better to have the quickshifter failure in qualifying than in one of the races. The championship table is tight with Ed in 5th place only a few points from the lead.

Some of our long-term sponsors have already pledged their support and we thank them for that and look forward to hearing from both new and old sponsors who are able to come on board for the 2018 season.Please help if you can to give the team and our riders the chance to represent Britain at the highest level. To contact the team call 07762 428210 or click here to email Peter or visit the team website. We would welcome a major backer which would allow us to upgrade to the latest machinery which could be decorated in colours and design of their choice.

There are eighteen races in our championship this year with most of them televised both in the UK,Europe and worldwide. British Superbike meetings have crowds up to 30,000 people on the day plus TV and media coverage. The switch over to Moto3 bikes has been expensive and the costs are still on going but we are determined to stay at the front and would welcome some additional support Every little bit will really help and go to make the bikes the best we can for the 2018 season. PayPal donations are also most welcome and can be made via the website. Many thanks to Neil Pidduck for the photo of Ed at Oulton Park.
