Stuart Hicken and Eddie Roberts, both well known in the world of motorcycle racing, have formed a jointly owned company, Real Motorsport Limited, to run the circuit on a day to day basis.
Commenting on the news, Eddie Roberts said: “This is a great day for us both. We have grown up with Mallory Park, firstly as spectators, then as competitors and now running businesses associated with the sport.”
Eddie owns Complog, a leading worldwide retailer of motorcycle tyres that also supplies the British Superbike Series. He enjoyed a 20 year racing career that saw him compete in many events including Grands Prix and the Isle of Man TT.
Stuart is owner of the Buildbase BMW Motorrad UK British Superbike Team. He started racing in the late 1960s and then managed successful racing teams for others before setting up his own Hawk Racing squad. Stuart’s career also included several years at Mallory Park.
The pair are working with local residents and Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council to overcome the noise problems that ultimately forced the previous lease holders into liquidation, and work is already advanced in getting the circuit back into shape. The calendar for 2014 will be announced shortly.
