Quay Garage launch talent programme

Top Mirror.co.uk Cup team Quay Garage Honda have unveiled a new 'talent nurturing programme' to aid the progress of young motorcycle riders.

The team, which has been defying its privateer status to currently run inside the overall British Superbike top ten so far this year, has launched the scheme in partnership with RM Productions, directed by Robin Martin.

Aimed at giving young riders the support to progress from 125 up to BSB, Martin was delighted to be going into partnership with the Quay Garage team.

“They say that some things are meant to be. A chance meeting with members of the team on the Old Moors cider stand at Brands has led to an exciting sponsorship programme. From supporting the 125 teams and assisting their riders to maximise their true potential right through to Gary Mason on his BSB machine, I am fully committed to the sport and to its exciting future.

“Passion, commitment, sheer guts and lunacy are apparent in each and every rider across all classes and in Gary's case he is simply a sponsor's dream. He is personable, modest and, quite simply, a really nice guy who is a fantastic ambassador for his sport.

“In Quay Garage Racing he has a wonderful team who work tirelessly on somewhat restricted budgets in their classic David against Goliath battle. What they lack in cash flow is more than compensated for in total commitment from each and every member of the team. It has been a real pleasure to get to know them (and their eccentricities) over the last couple of rounds.”

Quay Garage team principal Ian Woollacott is equally excited about having the chance to nurture young talent

“Robin has added a new dimension to the team in terms of identifying and nurturing new talent from the British 125 Championship right through to BSB. The British Isles has long produced world class riders and it is important that we continue to foster and harness up and coming talent.

"Quay Garage racing would like to extend our thanks to RM Productions and look forward to a successful and rewarding future partnership.”

Well done Quay and RM, I was starting to become concerned at the reduction of the influx of new talent entering British road racing since the demise of the R6 Cup, wouldn't it be nice if there was some goverment backing to this inititive as there is abroad? Dream, dream..

The guvvermint aren't just anti-bike they're broke too Rob. What they didn't invest in pensioning off Bankers, moat cleaning and multiple homes has gone on speed cameras (tho that's probably because the expenses kitty needs topping-up). If Quay, RM & Mirror would like to stand at the next election they'll get my vote :p I reckon what they're doing is fkn brilliant!
