About GR Motosport Ltd

Formed in 1995

GR Motosport Ltd was formed in 1995 from the sponsor/rider relationship of Tony Robinson and Brent Gladwin.

The teams birth came as the former Championship winning formula was brought to a premature end with an injury to Brent which ended his riding career.

It was decided that the expertise and equipment should not go to waste and should be used to promote young riders through to Title glory.

Our Progress

In its short history, One European and 12 British titles have gone to GR riders, and most have gone on to become superstars of the sport.

Since Brent took sole ownership in 2011 his direction in developing the Team and building working relationships with blue chip companies like WD-40, Intel and Nvidia, have seen our skills in racing become enhanced by our developing skills in Marketing, PR and Corporate entertainment.

Working very closely with our partners to amplify their goals in Brand exposure and PR through all channels including TV, Press, B2B and Social media we hope to help them all promote and increase sales.

Present

Our current aim as reigning British Champions (2013) is to continue the strategy of developing young talent, with riders in the British Superbike Championship series while delivering high ROI through fantastic exposure for our Partners and Sponsors.

Brent would be pleased to listen to your advertising and corporate entertainment requirements and tailor a package to suit all your exacting needs. Please take the time to contact us for an informal chat, it will surprise you where it could lead.

WD-40 and Stauff VIP’s enjoy their visit to Assen

September 26, 2014

Team WD-40 by GR Motosport Ltd, returned to Assen for the 10th round of the 2014 British Superbike Championship. Assen is always somewhere we look forward to visiting as we have a successful history there in different Championships including European and World Superbikes. Assen is a fantastic venue and with good weather forecasts, is a huge draw to the motorcycle sport fan from across Europe and the World. For the most the weather was ok just spoiling the party for the first Superbike race but it wasn’t enough to damper the spirits.

We had quite a party of guests from WD-40 Netherlands and Stauff partners in Germany where we have to thank Stuart Higgs and his MSVR Team for their help in organising some fantastic hospitality and viewing. Young Tarran Mackenzie was also on hand as Team clown to brighten the quieter moment and support his Team mate helping out pit boarding.

The racing at Assen was just fantastic for the near capacity crowd with nearly all the races coming down to a desperate last cornerlungeright under our guests vantage point. It also sawsome quite bizarre race results coming from the pressure of the championship as a whole coming to a close. A presumed combination of pressure and weather saw crashes from some of the main Superbike championship contenders but still at this point it looks down to Kyo and Shakey to take the title.

Our long time Friend Pete Banks (Banks Racing) saw his rider Ed Rendell take their first British Championship title in 20 years of trying, a superb result for the little team from the North East

 

Superbike:- we had had another tough weekend with Barry salvaging a single point from the second race.

Brent Gladwin Team WD-40’s manager, said: “Assen is just a fantastic place, it has many memories for us in racing from my own small success to the hey days of Dean Thomas and Karl Harris. The sad memories of waking up there to the loss of Princess Dianna and some of the fastest Taxi Drivers you may ever wish to meet when they find out your from a team !!!

This weekend we had a great bunch of guys from WD-40 and Stauff as guests with Iain Stansbie and Taz on hand to help out on the entertainment, a great job they both did for me.

Unfortunately our own racing just did not go the way we had hoped, Barry’s discomfort in the changing weather in the first race saw us start from the very back in the second race and he was lucky to salvage a single point.

We return to Silverstone on the 3rd-5th of October for the next round where we will have all 3 riders out. Ben is chomping at the bit as he returns to the scene of his first Championship points of 2014, Taz has his own very high standards to meet and Barry has to find and deliver the form he is capable of”

More Points for Canadian Ben Young at Donington Park

September 10, 2014

Team WD-40 by GR Motosport Ltd, had a tough weekend at Donington Park with only Ben Young shining through to bring home a result. Donington Park is in reality our home track, within very easy reach of our base at Stauff UK in Sheffield and a stone’s throw from the Mackenzie home and the Head Office of HAE, Cargolink. We had a healthy stream of VIP guests all weekend with family, friends and most importantly employees and customers of our partners, all enjoying the sun and fun of a weekend at the MCE British Superbike Championships.

 

STK 1000:- Ben had carried his form from his first points score last week into Donington where at the end of first qualifying he was a very creditable 12th, unfortunately his inexperience with the British weather, Ben made a bad call for 2nd qualifying missing the first half waiting for a drier track. He went out and to his credit went faster but crashed out on the last lap dropping down the order to 21st and leaving work to do. Brent and Ben again sat down and made a plan for the start of the race which worked well with Ben soon finding himself in a tight group battling for the points. This fantastic battle went on the whole race with places being swooped on just about every corner. With 2 laps to go Ben tried to make a decisive move grabbing 14th  and going after top 10, one of the riders in  this battle crashed out on the high speed Hollywood/Craner section just missing Ben and bringing out the red flag race stoppage with the result being declared with Ben in 14th. Great points and something Ben had worked really hard for!

 

Ben Young:- “FP started good with getting up to speed quickly put us in good shape for Q1, We made some changes and I dug deep at the end and was over the moon to find out I was 12th. Q2 didn’t go to plan, on my 5th lap I went down at Goddard’s and got dropped to 21st.

For the race I knew I needed to get a good start and get going. It was a tough race and not doing the pace that I wanted to, glad we were in one piece and managed to score some points. I am now travelling back to race in the AMA for one race and look forward to being back for Silverstone.” 

 

STK 600:- Tarran was after all at his home track and out to impress, faultless throughout practice and qualifying he secured a very comfortable 5th on the grid, unfortunately for the second meeting in succession things did not go his way in the race. Taz made a fantastic start dropping straight into 3rd place and with the leaders but it all came to nothing as he and 2 others crashed out, all riders OK at the Old Hairpin. Tarran was distraught but pleasantly surprised by the warmth and support he found from all our VIP guests on his return to the team base all happy to see he was OK.

 

Tarran Mackenzie:- “My weekend ran pretty smoothly qualifying 5th just 0.4 off pole. I was fairly confident that I would be able to run with the front guy’s as my Team WD-40 ZX6 was perfect all weekend. Unfortunately I crashed on turn 4 on the first lap with 2 other riders while at the front ending my race early. I was gutted but I will make sure I come back stronger at Silverstone and I can’t thank my team enough!”

 

Superbike:- We have had time to reflect on our weekend with the superbike. After Barry’s crash at Cadwell, Danny and the crew had burnt the midnight oil repairing the damage whilst the rest us were enjoying Ben racing at the MotoGP. Everything was check and there finished work looked immaculate as always as it rolled out for practice. From the start Geoff, Danny and Tom struggled to find pace for Barry, despite making some pretty radical changes to the chassis nothing the guy’s did could get Barry comfortable enough to go fast. After a long debrief looking at everything over the last few races it was clear Barry could not find his comfort zone as each change seemed to move but keep the problem. Barry was forced to pull out of the first race and the Team then made the decision not to go out in the second race. The ZX-10 is now being fully examined and rebuilt for the next race in Assen where we hope to pull everything together  to have a confident Barry Burrell secure 2 good results.

 

Barry Burrell:- “I don’t really know what to say is been a tough weekend, we tried loads of different settings but just couldn’t make anything work. I hope to be back in the top ten at Assen like we deserve!”

Brent Gladwin Team WD-40’s manager, said: “ What a weekend it’s been and a repeat of Cadwell park on the racing side. Ben did a great job with his confidence growing with each good result, he now returns to America to race his Tim Hortons 600 in the AMA while we are at Assen. Young Taz is just so desperate to win for the Team but things are just not going his way, it will come he just needs to be a little patient and keep that huge smile. Barry has had all kinds of problems this weekend and none of us quite understand why. The bike is being checked for Assen on the improbability that the guy’s missed something from the Cadwell crash, we will let you know what we find. We have had a fantastic weekend with our VIP guests and their families, it’s always great to entertain but special to introduce new people to our sport and see them become dedicated fans! – Finally a very special thanks goes out to Aidan, Adam and the Team from Cargolink who straight after the meeting got some very important parts moved by air door to door across 3 countries in 12 hours for us they can do the same for your company ”

First BSB Points for Canadian Ben Young at Silverstone MotoGP

September 4, 2014

Sheffield’s Team WD-40 by GR Motosport Ltd were in action at Silverstone over the weekend at the British round of MotoGP. The MCE British Superbike Championships, Pirelli National Superstock 1000 were the feature support race at the event.

Situated in the new Formula 1 ‘Wing’ the BSB Teams and riders had a time table to support the 4 races of MotoGP – with practice and qualifying to follow the normal BSB schedules of practice, qualifying and race. This was Scottish born Canadian Ben Young’s first time at the Silverstone Arena and it was a daunting task to learn in the 5.6 kilometre circuit in the time allocated. With the full support of all Team WD40 and Jon Cornwell, Ben did a great job of work and on the very last lap of qualifying managed to achieve his personal best position of the season with 19th on the grid.

STK 1000 Race:- Ben’s start position and the way he gets off the line gave everyone high hopes of seeing his first points haul of the year. Social media across the world were chatting and wishing him luck, he even had friend and Moto2 regular Josh Herrin and family come down to support him.
Ben made that start jumping up to 16th and putting him line to show what he could do. On his 2nd flying lap Ben went 7/10th faster than he had in qualifying to put him in to a race long battle with 2013 championship 3rd place finisher Victor Cox. In a brave move Ben pushed past Cox into the points and then benefited from a couple of retirements to take a very well deserved 12th place and 4 points at the line by a wheel from Cox !

Ben Young:- “I had such a fun and relaxing weekend with my team. Being the only rider this weekend was great focus but also a lot of pressure that I put on myself. The weekend started off good with a nice practice to learn the track and figure out which direction the wind gusts were coming from, so when we moved on to Q1 my whole attention was on moving forward. Starting the race off in 19th great, we already had our foot in the door for points but I knew I could get a good start and have a safe first lap and charge forward. After I passed Cox I could see Usher ahead and started to reel him in before the safety car came out, on the safety car restart I didn’t get the best of start and Usher immediately was making passes ahead. I managed to pass Hunt with two laps to go on the brakes and held Cox right to the line. Over the moon for me and my team, ready to keep the ball rolling into Donington Park this coming weekend”
Brent Gladwin Team WD-40’s manager, said: “MotoGP at Silverstone is always a special weekend for me as I remember my youth and the heyday with Sheene and Roberts battling and get to see all our friends and supporters in the World Championships. We were looking forward to the possibility of Ben Scoring points as the whole Team could focus its full attention on him with Barry and Taz having a weekend off. Ben took a little time to learn the huge track but managed to put a lap in right at the end of 2nd qualifying which is really all about that ‘ONE’ lap for the grid. Ben always makes good starts on the Team WD-40 ZX10 so we talked about the best strategy for the start and the first lap, Everything went to plan apart from the pace car incident where Ben made a little mistake which cost him a shot at top ten. The truth is we have all been working hard all season trying to get Ben his first point and just like buses 4 came at once, he now needs to keep the ball rolling for more points into this next weekend at Donington Park the 9th round of BSB.”
