Rickey Gadson Drag Racing School News
Brock’s Performance is proud to announce it will be renewing it’s sponsorship of the Rickey Gadson Drag Racing School for the 2013 race season.
World’s Fastest Motorcycle: 311.94 mph
NASA’s Space Shuttle program may be winding down, but Bill Warner continues to reach for the stars. On Sunday, at Loring Air Force Base, in Limestone, Maine, he became the first man to exceed 300 mph riding a sit-on motorcycle, with a stunning 311.94 mph run on the 1.5-mile course.
Brock’s Performance, the exclusive U.S. distributor of BlackStone Tek (BST) carbon fiber wheels for Japanese sportbikes, is proud to announce that BST wheels are now available through thousands of Tucker Rocky dealers nationwide.
With some of BST’s competitors succumbing to the tough economic climate, Brock’s has stepped up distribution of this class-leading brand.
BST-sponsored Leslie Porterfield won the Top Time Award at the sixth annual BUB Speed Trials, a motorcycle-only event at the Bonneville Salt Flats that certifies AMA- and FIM-sanctioned national and world speed records.
After rains turned the racing surface into a loose, soggy mess, this year’s course wasn’t ripe for record-breaking runs. Traction was extremely difficult to find, but conditions got better as the week came to a close.
Breaks Five Speed Records
Enabling a pair of CBR600RRs to achieve record-breaking speeds quickly and complete their runs safely, super-light, ultra-strong Blackstone Tek (BST) wheels entered the 200 MPH club at Bonneville Speed Week and broke five world records.
Super-Light and Artfully Crafted
Blackstone Tek (BST) wheels are now available for all model year Suzuki GSX-R1000s through BST’s new U.S. distributor, Brock’s Performance. More eye-opening than a 10-horsepower kick in the can, these lightweight carbon fiber wheels from BlackStone Tek (BST) bestow the open-class Gixxer with agile, middleweight-like handling and show-quality flare.
Brock’s Performance proudly announces that it is now offering contingency sponsorship for users of Blackstone Tek (BST) carbon fiber wheels in the WERA Motorcycle Roadracing series.
On this new relationship, Brock’s Performance President, Brock Davidson, says: "As a former American Suzuki Motor Corporation-sponsored racer who also relied upon contingency, I know how important this money is. By nature, racing is a winner-take-all proposition. With these BST contingency payouts, we’re glad to spread some cash around to help roadracers offset their expenses throughout the year.
Brock’s Performance is proud to announce that it has won the exclusive U.S. rights to distribute BlackStone Tek (BST) carbon fiber wheels for Japanese sportbikes and all drag-race applications.
BST wheels endow sportbikes with lighter handling, enable faster acceleration and promote quicker braking by weighing up to 60 percent less than their OEM counterparts, reducing unsprung mass and gyroscopic effects in cornering. This equates to stronger street performance and quicker lap times at the track.
Brock’s Performance-equipped Keith Thompson set a major drag-racing milestone at the AMA Dragbike Summer Nationals, becoming the first racer to reach the 7s in the BST Real Street class.
Thompson scored the record-setting 7.98/172.39 pass on his HTP Cycles-prepared 2007 GSX-R1000 using a trio of premier Brock’s Performance brands: carbon fiber wheels from BST, Brock’s patent-pending TiWinder, a titanium, elliptical, side-mounted exhaust system and a Brock’s Dragshock by Öhlins.
