2017 sees Bott continue their longstanding support for the Hitachi KTM motocross team by supplying them with workshop storage equipment. The kitted workshop in Lommel, Belgium, provides a well-organised & ergonomic working environment, allowing the team to effectively prepare & maintain the bikes. Kit was also provided for the back of the race truck and under the team awning.
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."
The team competes in the MXGP, MX2 & European classes of the FIM World Motocross Championships & the MX1/MX2 classes at the Maxxis British Championships. The schedule is hectic, with 16 world rounds including several ‘flyaways’; Qatar, Thailand, Mexico, Argentina & mainland Europe. It’s also back & forth to cover the length & breadth of the UK to contest the 8 British rounds.
This year the team consists of top UK riders, Jake Nicholls (MXGP/MX1) & Ben Watson (MX2) who are hoping to be front runners for the British titles & in the top 10 at World level.
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 2017 season."
