Bruce Anstey Relentless motorcycle racing leathers

Date made: 2007

Description: Set of 'Relentless' Suzuki racing leathers worn by Bruce Anstey. Sold by vendor as Anstey's 2010 leathers but photographic evidence confirms this was the set worn by Anstey at the 2007 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy (TT) races, when the TAS Suzuki team appeared for the first time in the livery of Relentless, an energy drink with an advertising policy of sponsorship of extreme sports. The black and white scheme was so popular that Relentless T- shirts had sold out to fans within a few hours.

Anstey won the Superstock TT in 2007, smashing the lap and race records in the process. John McGuinness commented afterwards, 'Bruce really pulled our pants down out there today'. It was Anstey's fourth Superstock win on the trot.
