True Heroes Racing honours the Queen with specially designed livery.

One of the Suzuki GSX-R1000s owned by True Heroes Racing Team was painted in a special tribute livery for Queen Elizabeth II and debuted at Snetterton.  The race team, which was established in 2012 by Royal Navy Warrant Officer Phil Spencer, is made up of veterans and wounded or injured service members.

As Mr. Spencer explains, "The Queen was our boss and she served in the Armed Forces, so when the news broke of her passing, we felt it was right for us as fellow UK service personnel and veterans to do something to honour her. A tribute bike to the late Queen was therefore an obvious sign of respect."

This felt like the ideal time to run the fairings after they were revealed to the public on Sunday so they could be admired before the race itself, as the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship only had one race at Snetterton BSB on the Sunday afternoon.

The portrait of the Queen, the EIIR, the Union Flag, and the dates of her birth and death are all featured on the design. Sublime Designs, a motorbike wrap company located in Bury St. Edmunds, hastily designed it.

Fortunately, Del Dowds at Sublime Designs, who provided the fairing vinyl design and wrap, has his headquarters only 20 minutes from the racetrack and was actually pulled up in the paddock next to us, according to Mr. Spencer.

As a result, "we worked with him and his laptop in our awning on Thursday night to design the fairings. We then started removing our own livery from a spare set of fairings, and he left on Friday afternoon to print and wrap that set in vinyl."

British Army Veteran Dave "Scrawn" Mackay competed on the Suzuki, one of two race bikes that OMG Racing superbike team owner and veteran of the military Alan Gardner lent to True Heroes Racing Team.

From September 16–18, 2022, the team and the bike will be in Anglesey for the NG Road Racing series, although the tribute bike won't be competing.

In keeping with the military tradition of "At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them," Mr. Spencer continued, "We are planning to obtain some further shots of the bike in this memorial livery this weekend, including some sunset images.
