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
