Image: 115 - Alan Russell, Star of Track and Screen, Now Magazine!

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!
