SANTANDER SALT TAG YAMAHA PEDIGREE


TAG Racing made their debut in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship in 2014 as they progressed to the premier class following five successful seasons competing in the Dickies British Supersport Championship.

The team scored a podium finish at Brands Hatch with Richard Cooper in 2015 and over the winter switched to the Yamaha YZF-R1 for the 2016 season, running the new machines in the striking Yamaha Motor 60th anniversary livery with title sponsorship from Anvil Hire, a national tool and plant hire company based in Burton-on-Trent.

The team came within three points of the title in 2017 with Josh Brookes and returned last season with multiple race-winner James Ellison and Shaun Winfield. Following a tough year for the 2017 title runners-up after only one visit to the podium, the team are now fully focused on putting a difficult campaign in 2018 behind them and focussing on the future with Dan Linfoot and Shaun Winfield.

We’re delighted and proud to announce that both Dan and Shaun will ride for the team in 2019. As a team we are under no illusions that next season will be easy, because it won’t be, some teams have improved vastly, and it will be very difficult, but as most people are aware, we love a challenge. Dan is a great rider and he’s proved that in the past, one bad year doesn’t make you a bad rider. After our first meeting we could see how much passion Dan had to join our project and exactly where he wanted to be during next season. We believe we have the right rider and our package has improved so we feel we have the recipe for success and aim to be back in the Showdown. “We are delighted that Shaun is ready to go in 2019, he had his best season ever last year and we know he’ll improve once again this year. He will once again have Chris Walker as his crew chief which is important in order for him to keep improving. I believe he’ll be consistently within the points next season. Rob Winfield, Team Owner
