Tony Scott and his team at T3 Racing have previously enjoyed huge success on the racetrack; organising the Triumph Triple Chellange series for many years, and winning 3 British Supersport Championships. They bring this success and experience ready-made to Spirit Motorcycles.
As racing is therefore in our DNA, and our confidence that the GP-Corse race bike is every bit as good as we say it is, we will once again line up on the grid. With the help of two of the UK's top Supersport riders, Dean Ellison and Alastair Seeley, Team Spirit will campaign the 2017 British Sportsport Championship. The aim; to prove the bike's performance in the first year, and hopefully populate the grid with more GP-Corse motorcycles in the next.
Because the bike is a "prototype" machine, benefiting from unique features such as the adjustable chassis and ultra light weight that oem factory machines simply can't match, the organisers will not allow the team to score points in the 2017 championship, but we aim to show what the bike is capable of by hitting the podium enough times during the season to make our presence felt.
Keep an eye out for the bikes and the Team at all 2017 BSS rounds (in support of the British Superbike Championship) at a racetrack near you.
