THE TEAM

Topgun Racing Originally formed in 2011 from mainly serving members of the Royal Air Force, Topgun Racing started to compete in motorcycle road racing at the world famous Isle of man TT course. The team's discipline and professionalism and sheer hard work ethic shone out from the very start. Not only were the team popular with the fans, with their distinctive and immaculately turned out machines, but also in no time at all were amongst the best privateer teams in the paddock!

Results Competing for several years at the world's most demanding and punishing race is tough enough, and to finish any TT is a great achievement, but to finish on the podium as top privateer on homebuilt machine against a field of factory backed teams with such formidable riders as Micheal Dunlop and Connor Cummins is just unheard of!
