BMW Motorrad is launching the BMW Motorrad Street Air by Alpinestars, an advanced airbag system offering comprehensive upper-body protection and the freedom to ride a motorbike both on-road and offroad.

The BMW Motorrad Street Air Dry textile riding jacket – which uses technology from the current Alpinestars Tech-Air® street airbag system – is designed to interconnect with the Alpinestars airbag system vest and is an essential component for the system to be fully operational.

Close Brothers Motor Finance employees have raised £12,898.47 for Great Ormond Street Hospital through a series of charity events.

In a bid to raise money for the charity, employees from the business took part in a range of fundraising initiatives, including a 1300 mile cycling challenge between all of Close Brothers Motor Finance’s offices. This cycling event saw John Murphy, Account Manager at the Sheffield Branch, covering the largest distance (140 miles).

Donington Park will host the opening round of the 2017 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship season on the weekend of 31 March – 2 April. The East Midlands circuit last held the opening round of the championship back in 2015, welcoming a record crowd in the process.

Donington Park MD Christopher Tate commented: “We are absolutely delighted to be confirmed as hosts of the opening round. With so many of the teams and riders based locally and with an enthusiastic East Midlands fan base, it’s a decision we are sure will be popular.”

HJC Helmets is the title sponsor of the 2017 Grand Prix de France, as the legendary 4.2km Bugatti Circuit hosts the world’s fastest motorcycle racing championship once again. The race weekend, set for the weekend of the 20/21 May, will therefore be named the HJC Helmets Grand Prix de France.

The sponsorship sees HJC further its commitment to Dorna Sports and MotoGP. HJC is celebrating its 45th anniversary, after recently becoming the first helmet company to Title Sponsor a GP with the HJC Helmets Grand Prix Ceske Republiky in 2016.



The blue and red logo of LIQUI MOLY will continue to be visible in MotoGP for a while longer. The German oil manufacturer has extended its participation in the racing series ahead of time until the end of 2020. “This is our greatest investment in motor sports – and worth every euro” says Peter Baumann, marketing director at LIQUI MOLY.
