Team riders Adam Mclean and Ed Rendell were both at Donington Park last week ready to test in
preparation for the first round of the Monster Energy Motostar Championships that kicks off
along side the British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch on April 5th 6th and 7th. Sadly
some overnight snow left the track unusable so it was a wasted journey for everyone. Adam had
travelled from Northern Ireland via ferry and car with his family, Ed and his dad Ray had
travelled up from Essex, Alan Green came up from Bristol and Steven and I travelled from the
north east of England. Due to the weather over the last month we will not be the only team
starting the race at Brands with limited testing so should make an exciting start to our
We are pleased to announce Rock Oil and NGK Spark Plugs have already supplied products for

Ed and the team are now preparing for a second test day at Donington Park (12th April 2013). The weather forecast suggests light snow and rain; a great chance to test out the WETS!
Monster Energy Motostar Racer Edward Rendell has begun his pre-season testing onboard the Banks Racing Honda. Doningnton Park marked the team's first chance to test the bike (ahead of the Brands Hatch opening round: 5-7 April 2013) . Rendell's pace in testing was positive and the team are very happy with the bikes set up so far.
