Tom Oliver has been putting his SGR Racing Yamaha through its paces during pre-season testing, while Team Manager Stephen Kinghorn has been working hard on pulling in sponsorship.
Oliver recently travelled to Andalucia in Spain where he consistently lapped at the top of the time sheets in preparation for the start of the season. He was pleased with his pace and felt like he had picked up where he had left off at the end of 2016. He also completed the official BSB preseason test at Donington Park, where he was running in first place during the third session ahead of Supersport bikes!
And while Oliver has been getting up to speed, Stephen Kinghorn would like to welcome the following businesses to the SGR Racing family:
Spectrum Culture Exchange
Alnwick Auto Centre
Stars Learning Centre
Tom said: “It was great to get back out on the bike and I must say my SGR Racing Yamaha was flying. After our results last year I’m sure we can do even better this year. Steve has worked really hard to get our sponsors onboard, and I’m thrilled to be able to welcome so many new businesses to SGR Racing.”
Stephen said: “We are really happy to have retained the bulk of our sponsors from last year and some have even increased their level of support like Putoline Oils. I’m also pleased to welcome the new businesses onboard. I want them to feel part of the team and enjoy the experience and coverage we can provide for them. They are mostly small businesses so I understand how important it is to see a return on their investment. We at SGR Racing will do our utmost to ensure they get the return they need to continue with us in the future. Here’s to 2017, can’t wait to get to Donington Park.”
The first round of the Pirelli National Superstock 600 championship is at Donington Park on 31st March – 2nd April.
