 Our Story

Our Story

We are a group of students from the University of Wales Trinity St David that are currently studying towards a BEng Motorcycle Engineering. We came together so that we could build, develop and race motorcycles and apply everything we learn throughout our degrees directly to the track. The team is 100% student led and has been from the start, we've funded the majority of the team ourselves but have managed to secure some really amazing support over the past few years and this wouldn't be possible without them. We began our racing career with NGRRC in the Minitwin class with Sam and after a brilliant first season we moved over to Thundersport GB and expanded our rider linup for 2017. We had a fantastic year and for 2018 Matt will be challenging for the Pre-National 600 championship on our Kawasaki ZX6R, Sam will be competing in Ireland at various road racing events and will appear at a few Thundersport rounds throughout the year.
