Buck & Hickman rebuild British superbike team

Published:  05 October, 2011

CHELTENHAM: Buck & Hickman has helped to rebuild the bike of British Superbike team Jentin Racing following a crash in August. The accident not only ruled the team out of the following two races but saw star rider Steve Brogan suffer a broken ankle.

Buck & Hickman has supported the Jentin Racing team for over three years and supplies all of the tools required to keep its bikes running at full speed, with last season being the team's most successful to date. Buck & Hickman's Tooltastic trade counter branding can be seen emblazoned on the bike and team clothing whilst its own-brand Roebuck tools feature exclusively in the team workshop.

Bernie Toleman from the Jentin Racing team, said: "The availability of key tools and consumables from the Cheltenham branch of Buck & Hickman meant that we could get back to the race track in the shortest time possible. The branch team were very supportive and we were delighted to bring the bike to their recent Tooltastic trade open day by way of a thank you for making sure we had access to all the supplies we needed."

Simon Armer, head of marketing for Buck & Hickman, says: "We've built a close relationship with Jentin Racing over the past few years and I'm glad that we've been able to help them get back on track as soon as possible. We're pleased that our Roebuck hand tools, tool cabinets and consumables have been put to good use and we wish Steve and the team the best of luck with the remainder of the championship."
