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.


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.

British Superbike Championship Grand Finale 2018

October 22, 2018

STRONG points finishes to the SEASON for both Team WD-40 and STAUFF Quick Connect academy

The 2018 British Superbike season came to a close at a very wet and cold Brands Hatch with both Mason Law, Team WD-40 Superbike and Claudio Corti, STAUFF Quick Connect Academy in strong points finishes, setting the stage quite nicely for the start of 2019.

Things did not go to plan for either in qualify with Mason crashing out of Q1 and Claudio getting caught with a red flag in the dying minutes of his qualifying session, leaving both riders well down the grid in 20th place for their respective races.

Mason had 3 races aboard his Kawasaki ZX10RR at the Kent track the first being in the Saturday Afternoon Sun. Mason made a tremendous start fighting his way up to 12th place before encountering front tyre problems which sadly forced him back out of the points as Leon Haslam took his first British Superbike Championship Title.

On Sunday as the huge crowds gathered track side to see the final races of the season the weather had taken a turn for the worse with strong winds and rain effecting everyone but not quite managing to dampen the atmosphere.

These conditions strangely do create opportunities for both the brave and cautious as its easy to get caught out but confidence creates results too.

Mason took these advantages in both races to fight back from his lowly grid position to fight in to the points for 12th and 13th in the two races. His Season had some fantastic highs in the two top tens of Thruxton but the lows of the Cadwell crash ruined the later half of his season so these points were important.

Mason Law:- ” Brands Hatch was a cold damp end to the year but it was still nice to get out around my local circuit. We worked on some areas that I needed to improve from the previous races there and did so.

Sunday’s cold and wet races were a case of staying on and not closing the year out in the hospital, the races seemed long in the conditions but I kept my concentration and It’s good to get these final points for myself and the team.

I would like to thank my crew for their hard work during this season I greatly appreciate it!


STAUFF Quick Connect Claudio ‘Shorts’ Corti on a charge!
The Pirelli National Superstock race ran on Sunday straight after the first superbike race, so we had some great feedback from Mason and his team for the settings of Claudio’s STAUFF Quick Connect Academy ZX10RR.

Claudio who is a known fast starter had serious work to do from 20th on the grid but made the most of the other rider’s cautious start and first few laps to fight into the top ten getting as high as 5th place.

All his hard work was thwarted by the weather conditions when in the dying couple of laps his vison was impaired as helmet visor steamed up. Not being able to see forced Claudio to back off and settle for points in 11th place.

Claudio Corti :- “I like Brands but its been a very long time since I was here with WSB. As always, the pace is fast in BSB and I made some problems in qualifying running of the track in the last moments. Thanks to the Superbike Team my guys gave me a good setting for this wet track and I was going good. I am sorry my Helmet caused a problem as I think something fantastic was possible today for Brent’s Birthday.


GR Motosport stunning 2018 TEAM livery
Brent Gladwin, Managing Director of GR Motosport: – “ well that was a birthday weekend and a half to share with my Team. We made some mistakes in qualifying which I am sure cost the promise of event better results. Both Mason and Claudio brought the bikes home in the points so it’s a strong finish. As this season ends, when I look at what we have achieved both on and off the track have met expectations.

On track there has been some stupidly situations which opened doors for the better which we did not know existed. Off track we have again delivered over and above on our Marketing strategies and I have to thank all our partners for their willingness in working together to exceed our targets.

It is now a busy period of planning and promotional duties for our Partners and for Next season we have clear goals in both these areas and there will be news of our racing plans soon.

The second round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Brand Hatch was a mixed weekend for GR Motosport’s Team WD-40 / STAUFF Quick Connect Academy.

The mixed weather conditions continue to play a part in all testing and results. Mason Law’s rookie season in Superbike is developing to plan as he becomes more familiar with running in the premier class aboard the Team WD-40 ZX10RR. Mason continues to be in the zone with the other Rookies again just outside the points, but we feel that our initial points goal will be in reach quite soon.

In Superstock 1000, Alastair Seely continues to bring home strong qualifying and race finishes aboard Stauff Quick Connect Academy ZX10RR. Qualifying 7th and taking 5th and 6th places in the Saturday sprint and Sunday feature races place Ali a current 6th in the Championship standings. There is still huge potential for improvement as the Team learn more about how to get the best out of the set-up for the Wee Wizard in coming rounds.

The all new DR Moto-3 made its race debut to mixed results with young Liam struggling a little to maximise all the benefits of this fantastic new chassis in its early stages of development, but still managed to score points in both races with a 9th and 14th. There is huge potential here to be maximised and with a testing and development program in place we would expect the results to grow throughout the season ahead…

Alastair in the zone and ready to Race

Mason Law, Team WD-40 Superbike:- “I have to say there are tons of positives to take from the weekend at Brands Hatch, and even more than we had at Donington Park during round one

“We had a new setting in the front of the bike that was very positive and a real step forward for me which is really good.
“We haven’t really put in a lot of laps on the ‘zero’ Pirelli slick, so again that was a learning experience. I know I need to work on getting more out of the [rear] tyre in the opening laps of a qualifying session. I’m comfortable with long runs but did struggle to put one flying lap together. I have good pace at the end of race, but it’s a little too late then as the guys in front have already cleared off.”

“For race two we made a change again and got stuck in; then it started to rain and I was looking forward to a wet restart having been eleventh on Friday in similar conditions.

“I got what I had hoped for, but for whatever reason in the race, I just had no grip at all from about lap three on. The bike was spinning up everywhere, but it is what it is and the team is looking into it. I feel we can hold our heads high and move on now to Oulton Park, after an upcoming official test there first, which is good for me personally, as I can get some laps in on the Team WD-40 Kawasaki Superbike before the May Day Bank Holiday meeting.”

Alastair Seeley, STAUFF Quick Connect Academy Superstock 1000:- “I qualified 7th which put us on high side of grid to get a good run down the hill into turn one for the first race. I made a reasonable start but got shuffled back a little which I did not like, I fought back hard and came through to finish up a strong 6th.

“We Made quite a few changes for Warm in the clutch & engine braking areas which needed tweaking a little for race2.
Race2 I got a really bad start leaving me a lot of work to do, by lap7 I had fought back up to 4th and I was in a duel with collier on the Aprilia for the rest of race and finished 5th.

“Sector2 really hurt us all weekend so we will study data and try figure out what was holding us back in that sector as I felt with a few more tenths we would have been challenging for podium spots.

“Next up is the official Oulton park test where my crew chief and I will make a plan to go through a lot of experimental work to help me understand the ZX10RR more.

Liam Delves, STAUFF Quick Connect Academy MotoStar:- “It was great to be back at Brands Hatch and racing in the first round of the Motostar Championship on the DR-Moto. Dean has done a great job and now Mark and my crew are working to get the best out of me for the little bike. Its great fun to ride but I have to learn much more about it and how to get the best from me and then the DR. We have arranged more track time before the next race at Oulton so we will be a bit better there.

The DR- Moto 3 on the grid in SUN

Brent Gladwin, Managing Director of GR Motosport, said: “We had quite a weekend at Brands and its strange sitting here looking out of the office window to brilliant sunshine remembering the weather we all went through…

“It was fantastic to welcome SCANIA’s Marketing Team and look forward to the release of their behind the scenes first short film..
“Mason is settling in well with the superbike and as he works more closely with Geoff and Danny I think we will start to see the true potential of this little group.

“Alastair is doing a good job learning the ZX10rr. Because of his perfect jockey stature, we have having to move things around for him to make his position on the bike just right. We all know Ali’s history and potential in this class.

“Liam has a lot of hard work to do to find his true potential. The Little DR Moto as you have seen is just a beautiful bit of kit, I wish I was a lot smaller and younger to give it a go – We have some testing planned and are looking at other ways to progress the bike so more news on that soon …

“Next is the official BSB test on the 26th at Oulton and ten its Oulton BSB which we are really looking forward to !!

GR Motosport’s Team WD-40 Superbike and STAUFF Quick Connect Academy Superstock 1000 made a strong start to their 2018 Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Donington Park over the Easter weekend. With Inclement weather affecting the entire weekend both Mason Law and Alastair Seeley were able to get some solid results aboard the Teams KAWASAKI ZX10RR’s

Mason made his debut on the Superbike and with conditions being far from ideal throughout the weekend, the former Superstock 600 champion and 1000cc race winner progressed enjoying every minute and showing signs for the future by putting himself in the hunt with the other BSB series Rookies. In first race of the season all the Rookies were in a great battle just outside the points with Mason taking 20th place, Unfortunately Mason had to pull out of the second race with a wrong tyre choice in the drying conditions.

Mason Law explained “All in all my debut in the British Superbike Championship has been an experience and there are lots of positives that can be taken from this weekend. Every session we continued to find strengths with the bike and more direction, especially with the front end. Obviously, the conditions were not ideal for my first weekend as a BSB rider, but you have to work with the cards you are dealt and we did what we could.”

Recounting race one the 22-year-old said: “In race one it was good to get on the grid and go through the whole unique BSB race system. Unfortunately for me, I really struggled to get the bike stopped, so we sat down after the race and worked through a plan for today and again we found good direction.”

Speaking of his Easter Monday experience in race two, he added: “We made the setting changes and rolled with it for morning warm up and straight away I could feel the benefit. In the race we aired on the side of caution and went with a wet tyre set up. We could see from the previous race there was a drying line, however from experience throughout the weekend, the wet tyres were holding up in the conditions, but today it kind of caught us off guard how the circuit dried up.

“It meant that I had to pull out of the race early, which was disappointing, but on the flip side I still can hold onto the positives from Donington Park. I’ll now look forward to going to my local race next time out at Brands Hatch and do it all again in two weeks’ time.”


Alastair on the STAUFF Quick Connect Academy ZX10 RR with Neil and Roger ready for the off!
Alastair’s weekend got off to a rocky start with a crash in the first practice session in terrible conditions, but he bounced back in FP2 with third overall showing the true potential of Team and rider. Qualifying did not quite go to plan but a strong seventh place on the grid for the first 50-mile race with all to play for.

The Easter Sundays televised first race was quite a spectacle with all 48 riders fighting for every inch of very slipper tarmac, Alastair settled in knowing it was imperative to finish this race as per the rules to start race 2. Towards the end of the race he pushed forward into a solid 5th place gaining his first points of the season. As the Chequered flag dropped the Teams and Riders only had Ten minutes to change tyres and refuel before the start of the second 50-mile race. Alastair and Team were ready for the start of yet again a hectic event. Over the last few laps Ali really got into him rhythm catching the podium places by nearly a second a lap only to be thwarted with the race being stopped with 3 laps to go but another solid 5th in the bag

Bank Holiday Mondays feature race just did not go to plan with the hideous conditions causing Ali to have a few big slides which forced him to settle for a points scoring finish setting him and the team up for the next round at Brands Hatch

Alastair Seeley said: – After a small crash in fp1 we got the ball rolling in fp2 with 3rd quickest time.
In qualifying I ended up 7th but felt we could of moved up the order only to be baulked on my last flying lap.

Race1, I started to get an idea of who I will be racing against this year which looks like its going to be fun, I moved forward towards end of race to finish 5th.

Race 2, Was quite interesting as we have so little time between the 2 to make improvements, after the start I settled into a rhythm from half distance & had a podium position in sight only to be denied by a red flag with 3laps to go…..finished 5th.

Race3, After having a few big moments in early laps of damp race I settled down & brought it home for some points as I felt that if I had of kept pushing on with a lack of rear grip then I was going to end up upside down again which is never good at the start of a season.

Team Principal Brent Gladwin reflected :- “The Easter weekend is just too early to have a major motorcycle race event the unpredictability of the weather makes it miserable for the Teams and spectators alike, having said that we all had to make the best of what we had to deal with.

My Guy’s put together a good safe weekend with British Championship points with both Mason and Alastair showing real potential for the season ahead.

I am really looking forward to the next round at Brands for many reasons, one in particular is the debut of our all new British designed and built moto3 chassis by Reynolds Engineering. One of the first to use F1 technology the little DR Moto will be in the hands of 17-year-old Liam Delves who again stays with the Team.

As you can see below, we are pleased to have quite a few new partners join the Team this year all with fantastic products and service weather you need any Insurance quotes, a nice holiday, added security or commercial vehicles please take the time to click on the icons below and follow the links!”

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


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

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
