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

After five very successful seasons where Team Banks Racing finished runner up in the 2013 Motostar British Championship, were championship winners in 2014, finished third in 2015 and fourth in 2016 we are looking for sponsorship to help keep us on track and be in a position to challenge for top honours again in 2018. We will be running two Moto3 machines, one is the Honda NSF250 for the standard section of the championship and the other is an ex Grand Prix KTM 250 piloted by Ed Rendell who remains with the team for this season. We are in talks with several young riders for the standard championship so more news on that to follow. The change over from the Grand Prix two-stroke bikes to Moto3 machines has been costly and with the class being so new upgrades are needed each year but we now have the machinery to win and are desperate for additional backing in any shape or form to allow us to compete at the front. We have opportunities available from running the bikes in corporate colours right down to having a sticker on the bikes and mentions and links on our website, motorcycle press and local newspapers.

Both bikes need full engine refresh kits and we have just found out from our engine builder that both our KTM engines need new cylinder heads. This was unexpected and has added an extra £4000 to the bill that we do not have in our current budget and if anyone would like to donate something towards this extra cost please get in touch. There is plenty room on our bikes and awning boards for extra advertising and decals so it would be great to see some extra names on the boards and bikes this year. The team will be racing at all nine rounds of the televised British Motostar Championship visiting such famous circuits as Brands Hatch, Silverstone, Oulton Park, Cadwell Park and Knockhill plus just about every other major circuit in the United Kingdom. Each round will host two races providing us with an eighteen race championship.

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 young riders the chance to represent Britain at the highest level. To contact the team call 07762 428210 or email Our Facebook pages are "Pete Banks" and "Banks Racing Pete Banks" and PayPal donations can be left via the email address above. Thank you.

Thank you to all our sponsors, supporters and friends.
