GR Motosport Ltd was formed in 1995 from the sponsor/rider relationship of Tony Robinson and Brent Gladwin.
The teams birth came as the former Championship winning formula was brought to a premature end with an injury to Brent which ended his riding career.
It was decided that the expertise and equipment should not go to waste and should be used to promote young riders through to Title glory.
The current aim of the team as reigning British Champions (2016) is to continue the strategy of developing young talent, with riders in the British Superbike Championship series.
