With only 10 days to go until the first Official test that the team will head to in Spain, it's all go in the JDR Workshop! Over the past couple of weeks Josh's Crew Chief; John Gardner, has been busy working on prepping his BMW ready for his first ever outing with JDR, and on the BMW! Spain will be the first chance for Josh to get to grips with the BMW and also the track, having never been there or ridden a bike since September! But a strong testing plan has been prepared by Josh's half of the garage in order to make the most of the valuable time before the testing heads back to the UK at Donington Park.
Ash however has also been very busy testing his BMW and fine tuning his skill in Cartagena already. Back in early January Ash popped over the Spain to get some extra track time in before some intense physical training, in order to prepare for the 8 extra races this coming season (Not to mention the increased race distances both of them will take on). Both Ash & Josh have been training very hard and are ready for the Testing and so are the team!
Not only have the riders been preparing for the season, but the rest of the team have also been very busy behind closed doors. Ash's Crew Chief Mike has been busy giving the team scooters a facelift, bringing them upto the professional standard we are aiming for. Robin (Grandad) has built our very own in-house spray booth so we can paint anything needed for the team without delay, and the bike fairing are being treated to something special for 2017 with the help from a friend of Chris (Boss). Be the first to see the 2017 livery on our 2 BMW's at our launch on the 25th March at Evesham Football Club!
