The tyre marque since 2009 has gone unbeaten in the Superbike and Senior TT races, plus holds the Superbike, Supersport and Senior lap records, showcasing the sheer quality of the products produced by them.

Recently at Cartagena in Spain, Ivan Lintin and new RC Express signing Steve Mercer, gained their first miles on their 2017 steads.

During the past week, both riders, piloted a variety of high spec Kawasaki machinery, alongside working closely with Dunlop and Maxton Suspension.

Established now amongst the leading roads outfits, Roy & Ben Constable’s teams opening pure road racing action of the year, is set to be at the Spring Cup National Road Races, at Oliver’s Mount.

Without a doubt though, one of the main aims for the season is making it four Lightweight TT titles in a row, which could also potentially yield Ivan Lintin a unique race winning hat trick in the Super Twins class.
