Who are AFB Racing?
We have been involved with short circuit road racing since the early 90's and in that time prepared Harley's, Triumph's, Yamaha, Kawasaki and top fuel Harley drag racers. My first appointment came in 91 as team mechanic for the Redkir Redskins competing in Harley-Davidson's 883 Sportster championship. The team took runner up spot in 92 and won the championship in 93. We also had the opportunity to race at Daytona and finished a respectable 6th out of 80! In the early 00's I teamed up with local rider and very good friend, Chris Pope, to offer sponsorship with his 98 Yamaha R1, he was then competing in the New Era Pro Bike championship.

Brief history
Chris and I began using his road bike a 98 4XV Yamaha R1. After a major in race engine failure we stepped up the support by way of a new 5VY 04 R1, Chris went on to develop the bike into quite a formidable package, As with all racing you have to stay on the ball so after 4 years we upgraded to the new cross plane 14B YZF R1, although we had some good results we could never quite find the sweet spot with this bike so in 2015 we ditched it in favour of the re-vamped 2CR YZF R1, this bike was a gem from the off and we've enjoyed a few visits to the top step again! After a strong end to the 2021 season we have now obtained Yamaha's latest R1 the 2020 B3L and after 2 decades of trying we finally won the championship! Why not support the team by grabbing yourself some of our AFB Racing merchandise! or kit your bike with some of our bespoke parts.

2009 - We raced again with NG and bagged a pair of 4th spots in both their Power bike and open championships.
2010 - We invested in new machinery by way of Yamaha much acclaimed R1 with cross plane crank. As they seemed to win just about every major event

2015 - Having exhausted effort to make the 09 R1 work for us it was time for a fresh start, so we stepped up with a new 2015 Yamaha R1. with only two outing in this year we did manage to get on the box on both occasions with a 2nd & 3rd.
