Bott Supports HM Plant KTM UK Motocross Team

Workplace storage specialist Bott Limited is continuing in its longstanding support of the KTM UK Motocross team by supplying workshop storage equipment for the team's new workshop in Northamptonshire.

The team competes in the MXGP and MX2 classes of the FIM Motocross World Championship and the MX1 / MX2 divisions of the Maxxis British championship. It runs a fleet of KTM 250 SX-F and KTM 450 SX-F motocross bikes, which are maintained and prepared for races in the team's new workshop.

The team has recently been bolstered by riders Shaun Simpson and Mel Pocock. Simpson (25 years old, from Fife) and Pocock (21, from Eastbourne) bring national and European championship pedigree to the squad and are both part of the small elite group of British riders in Grand Prix racing at the highest level. Pocock was crowned 2012 European number one and was a constant menace to the rest of the top ten in the MX2 category this past summer. Simpson has British and Belgian titles to his name, and in September became only the second rider from the UK to win a premier class Grand Prix; this was the last ever round of the MX1 series before it converts to MXGP in 2014.

To support the team's aspirations Bott has provided a range of Cubio KWB benches and Wall Butler cabinets for the team's new workshop. Team Principal Roger Magee said, "In the competitive world of motocross we have to ensure our riders have bikes which are the best prepared on the grid. To do this we have to get every stage of the process right. A well organised workshop is key to achieving this; the Bott Cubio equipment is built to last and enables efficient storage of parts, tools and consumables, supporting race-winning performance."

Clive Woodward, Bott Ltd CEO, said, "We're really pleased to see the progress being made by the HM Plant KTM UK motocross team and to see that they appreciate the importance of well organised workspace to successful motorsport teams. We wish the team all the best in the 2014 season."
