For the 2015 season, Smiths Racing is competing with two successful young riders, Billy McConnell and Jake Dixon, in the British Superbike Championship and the British Supersport Championship. The team will also compete in the Isle of Man TT with two machines ridden by television superstar and island racing legend Guy Martin and Aussie star Dave ‘Davo’ Johnson.
Volvo dealer Truck and Bus Wales & West are supporting successful independent motorcycle racing team with the supply of a new FH tractor unit. The first time the team have operated a Volvo on race transport.
Smiths Racing Team Manager Rebecca Smith reports that the new FH was a logical choice for the team transporter as the company Smiths (Gloucester) Ltd., also operates Volvo trucks and recently purchased four for their fleet.
“The livery looks great and is really striking. The Volvo FH maintains Smiths Racing’s professional image with the paddock,” says Rebecca, adding: “The team driver loves the truck too, especially the big cab, and little touches like the luxury of the memory foam topper on the bunk and practicalities such as the fridge freezer. It’s a real home from home for him.”
