With the second of the three Showdown races taking place at Silverstone this weekend, the 2011 MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship is starting to heat up and leading motorsport merchandisers Clinton Enterprises will have a strong presence at the remaining two rounds of the BSB season.
With bumper crowds at all ten rounds of the series so far this year, both Silverstone and Brands Hatch two weeks later will see tens of thousands of fans flocking to see how the destiny of the title unfolds in typical dramatic fashion.
Race fans can show their end of season support as most of the leading riders and teams are represented officially by Clinton Enterprises, who have been involved in merchandising for over 20 years, including five of the six title fighters. The Swan Yamaha pairing of Tommy Hill and Michael Laverty are well placed, as too are the HM Plant Honda duo Shane Byrne and defending champion Ryuichi Kiyonari. Relentless Suzuki by TAS rider Josh Brookes isn't out of the equation either as they all chase down American John Hopkins who holds a slender lead.
Whilst demand is expected to be high trackside as fans show their allegiance to their favourite riders and teams, all goods are available at the Clintons website which is now well established. As well as Swan Yamaha, HM Plant Honda and Relentless Suzuki by TAS, the 2011 range incorporates Buildbase BMW, MSS Colchester Kawasaki, Motorpoint Yamaha and TAG Triumph.
Silverstone's MotoGP earlier in the year saw a large crowd attend and despite the inclement weather over the weekend, the 2011 Air Asia British Grand Prix range proved popular with T-shirts, fleeces, vests and caps all relating specifically to the event, and there is a limited number still available.
One of the most popular lines continues to be the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 range of merchandise as endorsed by Britain's only representative in MotoGP this season, Cal Crutchlow. Once more at Silverstone and Brands Hatch, there will be a full range of exclusive 'Crutchlow 35' merchandise including specifically requested Cal Crutchlow flags as well as the full range of Crutchlow T-shirts, caps, hats, vests, fleeces and polo shirts.
Another popular seller is the Honda Legends range whereby at this year's TT races, John McGuinness took his TT tally to 17 wins. Clinton Enterprises have exclusive rights to the brand new Honda Legends range which includes jackets, fleeces, polo shirts, race shirts, hats, caps and both mens and ladies T-shirts as well as a range for kids.
Other ranges include a unique Harley-Davidson collection and major events including the Relentless North West 200 and MCE Insurance British Superbikes.
In World Superbikes, the popular James Toseland BMW range is still available as is the recently introduced Jonathan Rea range of kids and adults T-shirts. Alstare Suzuki and Team Suzuki ranges are also available as well as a range of Classic Legends T-shirts.
