Making Changes And Movin’ On Up!
British Superbikes Championship.
Team News Release.
Satchwell Racing would like to announce that we will be taking a short hiatus from the British Superbikes Championship with immediate effect. The team regrets having to take this sabbatical from racing competition and we would like to make it clear that it was not a decision we took lightly.
Unfortunately, because of some less than honest behaviour from those previously associated with the team, together with a lack of respect and commitment shown by some of those we gave a chance to, and with our team ethos taken advantage of in a negative fashion, we are choosing to concentrate on next season a little early.
And the future is bright.
With plans for the 2018 season already well in hand — including the securing of a title sponsor and with new machinery available with which to compete — it is in the best interests of the team to concentrate on our racing project for next year at this time.
It is understandably an exciting time for all concerned with obvious advantages to be had by adjusting our ethos and by putting the brand and team first. With this in mind, we can avoid any personal glory hunting by individuals who do not share our goals and do not want to go about the business of racing in a professional manner.
The exposure that comes from moving to a faster, more competitive class of racing with the associated chance for brand promotion too good to ignore — and with a genuine shot at making our mark once the move is made — was the thinking behind this decision by the management at Satchwell Racing.
With a new sponsor, team members, and solid surroundings in place — and with an established rider on the bike — comes the chance to re-brand, regroup, move forward and properly execute and implement a progressive team effort built for the future.
All our momentum in this regard will take precedence over the remainder of this current racing season.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and understanding as we now look forward to welcoming you the next time we hit the track.
Further news concerning the 2018 season for Satchwell Racing will appear on our website and on our social media accounts, so stay tuned!!
We thank you.
