Silverline sponsor South African MX team

We're excited to announce our sponsorship of the South African MX team competing in the 2016 British MXDX World Championship at the famous Farleigh Castle on 3rd and 4th September.

The international event which sees veteran riders racing pre 1989 motorcycles, is set to draw record crowds to the Hungerford racetrack. The South African Silverline Tools team will be headed up by former World Champion and MX celebrity, Grant Langston together with national Springbok riders Ryan Hunt, Tony Riddell and Andre David; The team will compete in all the major classes and will be looking to take the overall title. A full line up of fifteen teams will take to the circuit for two days of hard racing. 

“It’s a tough and demanding track and all of us have raced there and know it well but racing the older pre 1989 machines will be a handful compared to what we’re  used to riding,  but that’s the rules for the MXDN,” said Ryan Hunt. “We have a pretty strong team and should come away with some good results.”

The event also includes four races for the Twinshock Nations races and last year's winners, Germany have again assembled a strong proven team. Apart from two team races for both classes each day there are also eight supporting classes making this event the biggest motocross gathering within the UK with over 700 riders registered for the event.

“Silverline has had a very successful season so far in British Touring Car and also within the British Super Bike series, when our South African distributor told us they were putting a team together for this prestigious MX event, we jumped at the opportunity to get involved. We’re looking forward to some exciting (and muddy) racing this weekend! “ said Rob Henry Silverline Global Brand Manager
