Race Products – one of the UK's longest-established motorcycle race bodywork producers – has been acquired by accessories manufacturer Skidmarx.

Founded in the 1970s, Race Products specialise in grp (fibreglass), supplying club racers, track-day enthusiasts and even world championship-winning teams with race bodywork, including fairings, seat units and mudguards.

The company's future is now secure, following a buy-out by Skidmarx, which has moved production to its factory in Weymouth. Skidmarx produces motorcycle bodywork. screens, headlight covers, rear huggers, fairing lowers, cockpit fairings, and belly pans.

“We're already well known in the paddock for our race screens,” said Skidmarx director Matthew Dench. “Adding bodywork to our range makes perfect sense, because now we can offer customers a complete service and we have complete control over quality, start to finish.”

Co-director Ian Merrill (right) adds: “Our priority is to get production of current lines up and running. As we move into next year we'll be looking to start work developing bodywork for popular models, and we'd be interested to hear suggestions from anyone.”

The current range covers most popular track bikes, from the Aprilia RS125 to the Yamaha R1, including modern classics such as the Honda NC30 and Suzuki RGV250.
