OMG Racing Suzuki support Anderson School

Students at the Anderson School, a specialist school for autistic students located in Chigwell, Essex, were given a career boost recently, following a visit from the OMG Racing Suzuki Bennetts British Superbike Championship team.

David Howard, the school faculty leader, was a motorcycle racer in the 1980s and is still involved as a technical official at British and World Championship level racing.  

Howard said: “What a fantastic couple of days for Anderson School students. Last month the OMG Suzuki racing team and a young racing driver called Nathan visited us with their racing motorcycles to run a mechanics masterclass.

“Alan Gardner, the owner of OMG Racing, and his chief mechanic Darren brought one of the team's racing motorcycles to the school and let our students take turns to sit on the bike – and make appropriate engine noises. Darren then spent a couple of hours working with our students, explaining his job and answering questions about the motorcycle.

“If this wasn’t enough, Alan and Darren also donated a brand-new tool kit to the school for our student to use and kick off their engineering education. And then, on the following day, a group of our students visited Brands Hatch. We arrived in time to see the team practicing on the track. To help cope with potential sensory overload, the organisers let our students watch from a private viewing box overlooking the start and finish line.

“We also visited the team garages and were shown around all the computer systems and the equipment that the mechanics use to build the bikes. The team were working on the bikes at the same time - and answering our students' questions too.”
