The Story So Far…

Crank Racing is an ambitious and successful race team set up by Mark Grimes. Having finished 3rd in the UK national endurance series in 2014 , 2015 we went Large and competed in Thundersport GP1, after a tricky first half of the season we then hooked up with Josh Day and took the grid by storm winning the last 3 rounds.  On the roads in Ireland Derek Sheils took the Irish roads by storm winning some major events during the summer.

2016 is now all about winning championships, our aim is to win the 2016 Thundersport GP1 series, and we have entered a few wild card BSB stock event, we are also excited to announce that we will be the headline sponsor for the very popular Thundersport 500 class. ..Its time for the big yellow bike to make a BIG impact.

Our Ethos

Crank Racing is an ambitious and successful race team set up by Mark Grimes. Having finished 3rd in the UK national endurance series in 2014. We now take a BIG step up to compete in the Thundersport GP1 series and selected Irish road races in 2015.  We also want to make an impact on young peoples lives by:

Providing financial support for a number students through a partnership with two colleges, one in the South East and one in Ireland, and also with two Young Offenders Institutions based in the UK and Ireland.

Providing a new form of apprenticeship and financial assistance which enables students to complete their college course and gain track-side work experience as a race team mechanic, giving them a better chance of employment in the motor sport sector after they finish their education.

Matching students with experienced professionals and race mechanics who will mentor them throughout 2015 as they embark on their own careers.
