In the "Who the Hell is..." series of articles, Superbike Magazine features our Alan this month. The article traces Alan's progress as a racer both on mainland circuits and in the Isle of Man, through humble beginnings of A&R Racing Services in 1993, right up to today.
The business has now grown to operate two paddock trucks, often on the same weekend, a thriving mail order business and growing sales from the online shop.
In the sub-head of the article, Chris Northover says "If you've been club racing, you already know; Alan Russell is the race and tyre support glue that holds the racing community together. He's also quite handy on a 400".
It's all so very true, and a great article giving insight into how Alan has evolved his business into one that efficiently supplies club racers with just about everything they need. A visit to the paddock truck at the forthcoming Snetterton Bemsee meeting and the Thundersport GB Oulton Park, the weekend after next will confirm the business context, while taking a look at the Castle Combe results above bears witness to Alan's "handiness" on a 400!
