TICKET COMPETITION: Win Passes To Thruxton British Superbikes With R&G and True Heroes Racing

THR Logo black b-ground-1 We’re proud to support and protect the True Heroes Racing team. Don’t know much about them? The race team is the brainchild of a serving Royal Navy sailor who has been lucky enough to return from several Tours of Duty in Afghanistan uninjured.

After working with a large number of injured UK Service personnel on motorsport charity events it was decided to try and use competitive motorsport as a way of restoring a sense of direction and focus for our injured UK Service personnel and in 2012 “True Heroes Racing” was formed.

Racing for them in 2014 are two former servicemen, both discharged from active duty after sustaining injuries from IEDs in Afghanistan. Murray Hambro, the team’s first racer, is a double amputee who hasn’t let his injuries suppress his love for bikes and is racing with all the foot controls on the bars.

Joining him in the Tristar R&G Triple Challenge also on a Triumph Daytona 675 is Luke Smith, who when serving in the parachute regiment lost his hearing to an explosion, meaning he was discharged from active duty.


But it isn’t just about the riders as some of the team’s mechanics are also injured servicemen, in keeping with the ethos of True Heroes Racing.

Check out www.trueheroesracing.co.uk or have a chance to meet them by emailing your contact details to competitions@rg-racing.com where one lucky person will win a pair of tickets for this weekend’s British Superbike Racing at Thruxton. Competition closes at 9pm on Friday August 1, 2014.

TESTIMONIAL: GSX-R600 Lowside Crash at Brands Hatch

IMG_0820R&G customer, Matt, had a lowside crash while attending a track day at Brands Hatch earlier this year.

Matt said: I recently put one of your R&G Crash Protectors to the test recently at Brands Hatch!  I had a pretty unfortunate cold day/cold road tyre scenario which resulted in a 60mph low side.  

“Amazingly the bike was pretty much OK, aside from a slightly bent brake pedal, minor scrape to the base of the exhaust, and minor scuff to the fairing.  All very fixable and the main point was that I was able to ride home with no issues.”

Have a look at what happened in Matt’s video here and scroll below to see how the R&G products prevented significant damage to his beloved Suzuki GSX-R600.
