MotoGP: Statement from Silverstone

Well, race day didn’t go to plan did it? My goolies have only just dried out after a day of waiting around for track action in consistent rain. Regardless of that rain, we should have witnessed a MotoGP race today, but Silverstone’s new surface dictated otherwise. The good news, however, is that Tito Rabat’s surgery (on multiple leg fractures) went… Read more →

The £2,500,000 Garage | Yamaha Racing Experience

What happens when Yamaha assembles 150 R1Ms into the garage at Silverstone? You have yourselves a £2,500,000 garage. That’s exactly what happened last August (yes, we know, apologies for the late upload) when the Yamaha Racing Experience rolled into the UK for what should have been the ultimate trackday.

Video: Save of the Year?

Nobody likes crashing. Crashing is bad. Not even Ruben Xaus liked crashing despite his penchant for doing so most weekends. And highsides? No thanks, especially when you’ve worked your bollocks off to fund your pride and joy. Saving gargantuan highsides, broken bones and hideous amounts of money is usually left for the professionals (Randy Mamola’s infamous save back in the… Read more →

2016 Ducati TriOptions Cup Rd1: Silverstone

Racing, oh how I’ve missed you. Those long, derelict winter months have whizzed by and we could have done with a few extra weeks until the first 2016 British Superbike round at Silverstone. A hectic pre-season schedule involving zero pre-season testing (and budget) isn’t an ideal scenario, but that’s life. Although there was the obvious task of representing P&H/Carl Cox… Read more →

Video: Aprilia RSV4 RF v Yamaha R1M

In case you didn’t know, we’ve just nailed a marathon back-to-back test with Aprilia’s RSV4 RF and the Yamaha R1M: a day of circuit assessments at Silverstone followed by a few hundred pothole-infested road miles in the south of England for the ultimate conclusion. And entertainment. If there was some sort of official terminology for making love to sexy-sounding motorcycles,… Read more →

Ducati TriOptions Cup: Rd7 Silverstone

The highs and lows of racing were perfectly encapsulated at Silverstone last season. Qualifying on the front row, genuinely in contention for a podium, and then this happens… As the British Superbikes rolled into Silverstone for another instalment of ‘The Showdown’ phase, the penultimate round of the 2015 Ducati TriOptions Cup was nearing a more stimulating crescendo. Embroiled in a… Read more →

Is this the future of UK racing talent?

It’s the British GP at Silverstone this weekend. Although the home-crowning fairytale is mathematically impossible, Danny Kent is edging towards bringing the first GP title back to Blighty since Barry Sheene in 1977. Even without clinching the championship, Kent is already the most successful British rider since Bazza’s era and has a medley of 2016 MotoGP contracts at his disposal.… Read more →

All-Ducati Trackday at Silverstone

As you may have gathered via yesterday’s social media activity, Team 44Teeth were present for Ducati’s annual trackday celebrations at Silverstone. We got to sample a smidgen of the 2015 range, surrounded by Desmo-heads and friendly Ducatisti. Much L-twin infested fun was had by all. There were a handful of Superleggeras, a smattering of Desmosedicis, and everything from old-school Monsters… Read more →

Yamaha RD250LC Pro-Am Revival

Spawning many relationships and race careers, the iconic RD250LC formed the just-as-iconic Pro-Am series in the 80s.

Racing legends such as Niall Mackenzie, Jeremy McWilliams, Geoff Crust and James Haydon will be part of a… Read more →
