RS RACING unveiled the 2017 team bikes for the second year at the Rising Sun in Norristhorpe West Yorkshire.

Press-Form Machinery Ltd will be joining forces with Continental Tyres as title sponsors of RS Racing for 2017. This is an exciting opportunity for Press-Form as for the first time the RS Race team will host 3 riders.

After a short speech by Ryan the riders were introduced and the bikes where unveiled. This year’s team line-up features three riders for the first time in RS Racing’s history, with Golden Era Superbike contender Ryan Strafford leading the charge on his Golden Era SBK Honda RC51 SP2. Last year Ryan, backed by both Continental and Press-Form, finished second in the class. This year he’s got his eye on the top prize, but will have to keep an eye on his new team mate Andrew Meachen on his earlier generation SP1. Also joining the team all the way from Texas is AJ McDaniel who will be competing in the Continental sponsored Pre-National Sport 600 class in his debut season aboard another Honda, this time a CBR600RR.


Managing Director of Press-Form Machinery Andrew Meachen said "We are happy to be backing Ryan again in 2017 where he is going to be a serious title contender, RS Racing sponsorship enables us to get the Press-Form name out there and our customers are also invited to come along to the race meetings and get up close and personal with the team. As this is my first season of racing the RC51 SP1 superbike I will be looking to Ryan’s vast track riding experience and his dad’s bike set up knowledge to help me improve my lap times”
