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 (2016) 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 TARGETS achieved by MASON LAW at DONINGTON PARK WORLD SUPERBIKES

June 1, 2018

Donington Park World Superbikes was a hugely successful event with Mason Law hitting all the targets set by his Team WD-40 Superbike.

The World Superbike at Donington with its highs and lows in racing still achieved all GR Motosport’s ambitions for the event. As part of our race program and rider development we had set Mason targets of improving his lap times in the dry by a huge two seconds.

Fridays very busy schedule of 3 session set the tone when in the first session the wet conditions were a great leveler and confidence booster when Mason finished a very strong 18th place. The second session in mixed conditions was reasonable but the Third session in the dry is where things really started to shine. The Team had put together a great bike and Mason seem to revel in the situation getting faster and fast again ending the session in 18th on a BSB spec bike with 250 revs less than we would normally use. Mason had already achieved all our goals setting PB after PB to end the day 2 seconds faster than he had ever gone before….

Saturday started well in FP4 when Mason continued his form pushing us into Q2 where unfortunately is all went wrong. On a very hot lap Mason just asked a little too much from his ZX10RR and down they both went live on TV.. at first things did not look so good but with a quick visit to the med center and some treatment on a wrist and ankle injury we though he could race.

A valiant effort by Mason and his crew where Mason was able to start the second race and lap faster again was sadly curtailed when the wrist injury just became too much for the Essex youngster and forced him out!

Mason Law: “Donington Park World Superbike was something special! It was a great experience for me and my team. The idea was to always use this opportunity to gain track and set-up time while collections valuable data.

We took this time to make some changes to my ZX10rr and how I rider her, honestly every change we made was an improvement which doesn’t always happen that way. Friday was great hitting all our targets but
qualifying and the races didn’t go to plan however I personally have learnt tones from the world’s best riders and I can’t help but look back at the weekend positively.

As always, thank you to my fantastic team, to my crew for their hard work, they battled through some hard tasks including an off of mine and all of our valued partners, it wouldn’t be possible without your support!

I am now looking forward to carrying this momentum to Snetterton on the 15th-17th June.
#happypilot

Brent Gladwin GR Motosport Managing Director: “Well that was a fantastic event for us in all areas. The exposure we gained for our partners, reinforced the marketing opportunities we create and deliver in all our activities with and for them!

From a racing perspective I repeat what I said about taking a knife to a gun fight, although I did not realize that the knife would be blunted by losing 250 revs from our normal BSB limit. Mason and the Team did a brilliant job in building lap times consistently 2 seconds faster than he had done before which in my mind is job done ! – Ok in racing or any competition we are all greedy and our past achievements soon after they are made become old hat and you push on again. Mason did just this and sadly fell, but we learned a tremendous amount allowing him to push on to faster times in the race a great sign for the next BSB at Snetterton.

EX CHAMPION SEELEY JOINS GR MOTOSPORT

February 20, 2018

Former British Champion and multi race winner Alastair Seeley arrives at The STAUFF QUICK CONNECT ACADEMY to race the Teams Kawasaki ZX10RR in the 2018 Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship.

Alastair is who is well known for his dogged race craft, bring his wealth of British Championship winning experience for another title attack in a class he has dominated in previous years. The ZX10 is the 1000cc class front runner, winning the title twice in the last 3 years and with The Stauff Connect Academy ZX10RR taking race wins and lap records in 2017, the duo make the perfect match for the short circuit championship which kicks of at Donington Park at Easter.

Alastair joins the Team at STAUFF Ireland branch in Lisburn
Alastair Seeley, “I am very happy to be joining Team WD-40 / STAUFF Quick Connect Academy onboard the Kawasaki ZX10RR for another go at the Superstock 1000 Championship that I won in 2009 & runner up in 2015. A new team and crew is an exciting prospect and one I can’t wait to get involved with. The bike proved itself last year with a win and a lap record and with more performance for 2018 and a determined flyweight rider like myself on-board then things are looking good. I had a great time meeting the guys at STAUFF Ireland in Lisburn last week its good to have these guys behind our race effort.I hope to get testing underway in the next few weeks at uk tracks to familiarise ourselves with current temperatures & things that resemble what we could be faced with at round 1 come Easter weekend.

Iain Stansbie
, Head of UK Marketing:- “STAUFF UK are delighted to join GR Motosport, Team WD40 and the family of sponsors in welcoming Alastair to the STAUFF QUICK CONNECT ACADEMY part of the team. Alastair lives close to our branch in Lisburn, County Antrim and his recent visit to meet the team there certainly stimulated further interest in the sport for the guys in the Ireland facility. Alastair’s “local hero” status, particularly in connection to the North West 200 will bring him an increased following from the STAUFF UK Group and further afield. We wish Alastair and his crew the best of luck for the season and also look forward to continuing our support of Mason Law on the Team WD40 Superbike.

Brent Gladwin, GR Motosport, Managing Director:- “Signing Alastair for the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 is a great move for GR and the Stauff Quick Connect Academy. The Wee Wizard has not only won the Championship before but has won races in just about every BSB Class. I personally but also the whole Team are looking forward to having Alastair race with us and we are looking forward to repeating past successes this time together

MASON LAW STEPS UP TO BSB WITH WD-40 KAWASAKI FOR 2018

February 3, 2018

Essex rider Mason Law will contest the 2018 British Superbike Championship aboard
The #55 Kawasaki ZX-10RR for Sheffield-based GR Motosport.

After a successful first season in the litre class, the 22-year-old from Benfleet has signed a deal to move up
from The STAUFF QUICK CONNECT ACADEMY to the TEAM WD-40 Superbike,

Mason’s move up to BSB is a continuation of the success of GR’s ethos to develop young talent through the
Stauff Quick Connect Academy to the highest levels of Motorcycle Sport, whilst continuing our long
associations title Sponsors WD-40 and STAUFF UK for the 12-round Televised series. Its also testament to the
success of Kawasaki’s Team Green, which Mason has been a part of his entire motorcycling career to date!

Mason Law, “First of all, it’s nice that I can remain within the GR Motosport family and also with Kawasaki UK
for my first crack at the British Superbike Championship,”

he explained “I’ve come all the way from 250cc Motocross to British Superbike with Kawasaki, which is
testament to my belief in their racing machinery and hopefully vice-versa. BSB is the pinnacle at British
Championship level racing, so we have to be realistic coming into my rookie season.

“I have a lot to learn, but on a positive note, the fundamentals of the ZX-10RR are just the same, and I’m
confident that the experience I gained last season in the Superstock 1000 class, will afford me a bit of a
foot-up,”

In closing, the former 250cc Junior Cup and Stock 600 champion said: “I’m not daunted by the challenge even
though the series is packed with top class riders, but I’m not going to be disrespectful and make any rash
predictions. It’s an interesting project for both myself and everyone at GR Motosport and the WD40 Kawasaki
British Superbike Team. In truth, we are all buzzing with excitement at the prospect of getting started.”

Mason looks to Team WD-40 Superbike

 

Ross Burridge, Senior Racing Co-ordinator for Kawasaki Motors UK
“Mason has been an amazing advocate of Team Green and what it represents. We are committed to
encouraging and nurturing young talent, and this shines through with Mason, his story and his history with us.
Stepping up to the Superbike class is a big move, but I know it is one he will be able to handle. With an excellent
testing programme in place and a great team behind him, I am sure it won’t be long before he achieves the results
he is aspiring too. We wish him and the team all the best for the 2018 season. 2018 is a very exciting prospect
for Team Green.”

Brent Gladwin: “2018 is going to be a good year for GR Motosport, we started working with Mason last year, and
it quickly became evident to Geoff and I that he could be the first of our riders from the STAUFF Quick Connect
Academy to earn a place on the Superbike. Mason is not only a great rider but he is a personable guy who is
commercially astute which gives good prospects for the future.  We have a two-year plan that will see Mason
quickly rise through the BSB ranks!

Now we are working on a replacement for Masons seat on The STAUFF Quick Connect Academy’s race winning

FIGHTING FOURTH for the OUTLAW at DONINGTON

June 2, 2017

STAUFF CONNECT ACADEMY’s Superstock 1000 rider Mason ‘Outlaw’ Law showed his steel by fighting back from dead last to 4th over the 2 BSB support races at Donington Park’s WSB event on the Kawasaki ZX10RR

The 21-year-old rookie from Benfleet Essex continues to show great promise and growing skill as he continues to adapt to the 1000cc machines.

Law, and his crew are really getting to understand the ZX10RR’s capabilities and with the Team able to focus on just one class over the weekend we were hoping for great things. Free practice started well with Mason taking 3rd place and then on to qualifying. Things were a little more competitive and it took until the last few minutes to get everything together, where on the last lap Mason was running a pole position time just to loss it in the last sector through no fault of his own and had to settle for 9th on the grid.

The strange Pirelli National Superstock program sees two eighteen lap races back to back with a 15-minute brake to refuel and fit new tyres. You have to finish the first race to be eligible to start the second. Mason made a fantastic start in race one jumping into third place only to have another rider stupid move punt Mason off track at very high speed. Mason had to use all his many year’s motocross skills to stay on-board the big Kawasaki getting back on track in dead last place some 20 seconds behind 34th place rider… Understanding he had to finish and showing his steal, Mason started an incredible fight back. Lapping at front running pace he fought into the points and 15th place on the grid for race Two.

Another brilliant Start from 15th and Mason was in the thick of the action soon into the top ten and moving forward with a couple of laps to go he grabbed a stunning 4th place and more valuable points in the championship.

Mason Law:- “We had a good start to the weekend with P3 in Free Practice 1. Unfortunately qualifying didn’t quite go to plan. It was a busy session and a lack of clear track meant I ended up ninth.

Inspired by Leon Haslam’s race one start in World Superbike – seeing him go straight up the inside overtaking many riders – I figured I’d give it a try and found myself in fourth out of turn one. I managed to get around the outside of the third placed rider at McLean’s about halfway into the lap, before being cleared off the track by another rider in a moment of madness. Luckily, I kept it on two wheels and rode through the gravel. This put me last and about 20 seconds behind the next rider on track. I knew that firstly I had to finish this first race to get into Part 2, but I also knew I had to push on as much as possible to get a better grid slot. I picked my way through and finished 15th.

Fired up for race two, I again took the inside line into turn one and picked a few riders off to find myself up to sixth place, about five seconds off the leading group. I kept my head down and slowly closed the gap, getting up to fourth place, but by this time the front three had a sizeable gap on me. I posted my fasted time of the weekend and took a lot away from race two.

The team were great once again, not only for the pit stop but for the whole weekend. Thanks to the Stauff Connect Academy GR Motorsport crew – we can look forward to the next one at Knockhill.

_D700186.151719

Danny, Dogs and Team make the pit stop look easy

Brent Gladwin: “We had a great weekend at Donington supporting the British round of World Superbikes. Mason, Danny Dogs and Ash really showed what a good little team is capable of, pulling success out of the jaws of disaster. Mason’s fight back from last was heart stopping to watch. Also with it being World Superbikes the whole of Kawasaki’s technical team was on hand for us to talk to, sharing information which will hopefully help Tommy and his Team WD-40 in BSB.

Mason has just been up to Knockhill for a few laps, next stop is Snetterton on Wednesday the 7th for a BSB test day. This test is free entry to the public so it would be nice to see you all there.
