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.

Team WD-40 feature at EICMA motorcycle show Milan 75,000 visit the WD-40 stand for launch of WD-40 Specialist Moto

November 17, 2014

The race season may be over, but Sheffield based GR Motosport Ltd is as busy as ever in promotional duties for our partners. November is a particularly hectic month for the Team with Motorcycle shows, EICMA and Motorcycle Live along with duties in other sectors including industrial and automotive. The off season promotions are an extremely important part of GR Motosport’s activities and added to technical trips and testing there is not much time for relaxing.

The EICMA motorcycle show in Milan is probably the largest of its kind anywhere in the World with Half a million visitors in just 6 days. WD-40 took an impressive and highly visible stand for the launch into Italy of WD-40 Specialist Moto. The WD-40 Specialist Motorbike range of products originated in the UK April of 2013 to a fantastic reception from the Media, Trade and most importantly the discerning motorcycling customer. As the product range has started to roll out across Europe it has continued to be received in the same applauded way.

Team WD-40‘s participation at EICMA was something of an eye opener even for the seasoned members of the Team, from the very first day when open only to the press the WD-40 stand was a major draw at the show for everyone. The stand and its staff stud head and shoulders above what was expected, attracting over 75,000 people to leave data and collect product, reminiscent of scenes in the movie ‘The Thomas Crown Affair’ – but everyone was seen to be carrying WD-40 bags

Motorcycle Live starts later this week and runs until the end of the month. The Team WD-40 Superbike will feature as part of our long term partner R&G’s stand, number 3E05, where you will also be able to see and buy the WD-40 Specialist Motorbike range of products.

The GR Motosport prepared, Stauff Connect Academy and Team WD-40 bikes will be seen as part of an important promotion by Stauff UK at their headquarters on the 27th of November .

Team WD-40 members will travel to Jerez in Spain later this month as part of is perpetrations for the 2015 race season.

Brent Gladwin: “ It was fantastic that Team WD-40 were the ONLY MCE British Superbike race Team to have any sort of presence at the EICMA in Milan. It is testament to the work done by BSB Director Stuart Higgs and his Team the amount of people there in Italy who knew about BSB and our Team as they had seen it on their own countries Television.
The EICMA really caught us all out with the amount of visitors to the stand we gave away over 75,000 samples. Rossana Reami and her Team from WD-40 Italy did a fantastic job of organising everything and making everyone welcome.

Motorcycle Live is our next priority working with Team Partners to maximise exposure for the Team and everyone involved. Stauff UK is next and we still have to go to Spain for some important meetings and planning for 2015.

All in All November is a very busy time but quite exciting as we make plans for the future of the Team and the promotions involved – for day to day updates please follow us on our social media listed below

Finally it is November and John Morris from Stauff UK is putting himself through earache hell by supporting ‘MOVEMBER’! We all know how important this is so please support John’s efforts by visiting and donating to the charity for his efforts – Gentlemen please remember the more money this can raise for the girls having to suffer this Movember the less change we will have to suffer FANUARY – http://uk.movember.com/mospace/10660617 thanks for your support !

GR Motosport / Team WD-40 announce Stauff Connect Academy

October 29, 2014

Sheffield based GR Motosport Ltd and Stauff UK were pleased to be able to unveil their ambitious plans, to the ‘Made In Sheffield’ (MIS) manufactures forum ‘Generating Growth through Innovation’ at Sheffield Hallam University this week.

Both Stauff UK and GR Motosport, who have strong links with the City of Sheffield through engineering and motorcycle sport, were proud to be invited by MIS to reveal the striking green and yellow livery of the ‘ Stauff Connect Academy’ Kawasaki

 

Stauff UK, looking to enjoy their 3rd year of involvement with GR Motosport and Team WD-40 Announced:-

 

We are proud to announce our continued support of fellow Sheffield based GR Motosport and Team WD-40, for the 2015 British Superbike Championship.

 

We have enjoyed partnering Team WD-40 for the last 2 years and have become increasingly more involved in the team activities, to the point where an agreement has been reached to enter a STAUFF branded bike in the Superstock 600 category for 2015.

 

The concept is the brainchild of GR Motosport Managing Director, Brent Gladwin and Stauff’s Head of Marketing Iain Stansbie in co-operation with WD-40. It will see the Stauff Connect Academy bike run by GR Motosport becoming an integral part of Team WD-40.

 

Iain Stansbie: “The STAUFF Connect Academy was born during a meeting to harmonise the teams wish to continue developing a connection for youth talent and STAUFF’s  requirements to highlight awareness of their latest range of quality fittings: The Stauff Connect Range. Our increased exposure in the 600cc Superstock category will offer more opportunities to utilise the bike in our marketing activities, we will also be able to offer more opportunities for customers and members of staff to attend race meetings”

 

Brent Gladwin: “Team WD-40 are proud to create this visible connection from grass roots racing to the pinnacle of British Motorcycle Sport, The British Superbike Championship.  Our ethos has always been to help in the development of young talented riders, The Stauff Connect academy will formalise those goals. We now have a clear set of stepping stones from Motocross into road racing and onto the Superbike. Today the only rider confirmation is, Sam Atkinson from Alnwick will pilot the Motocross bike with a move from KTM to Kawasaki machinery. We continue to look at our possible rider options for both the Stauff Connect Academy 600 and our Team WD-40 Superbikes, where we hope to make announcements in the near future”.

 

Team WD-40 leave this weekend on our next adventure, this time to Italy where we will feature on WD-40’s Stand in Hall 6 of the Eicma Moto 2014 in Milan. A fantastic stand in a brilliant venue, please call by to say hello and discuss the unrivalled ‘WD-40 Specialist Motorbike’ Product range.

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”
