OMG Racing will now be known WTF Racing.

It’s hard to see why anyone would agree to a deal with Rich Energy / Lightning Volt. (Unless they are being paid upfront with suitcases full of cash, fresh from the launderette.)

Wonder if Whyte bikes got paid ?
Also whatever happened to the energy drink ?
There were crates stacked of it and promises of global distribution

It would be great to hear about the above, presume it was all a total fake up.

Surely you wouldn’t even entertain the idea of putting their name on your bike unless they actually stumped up some real physical money first? You’d have to be absolutely moronic otherwise, in which case they deserve to go under for being brainless.

Whyte won a lawsuit against Rich Energy for copying their logo. Rich Energy and those involved are the only morons here.

Apparently it’s a big part of the next series of the Netflix drive to survive show.

And here it is. This is James Hilliers OMG racing BMW S1000RR TT bike on display today at the Bike show at Excel in its Rich Energy glory. No promotional cans of drink available, I was disappointed...

IS HE STILL INVOLVED? WHAT’S THE DEAL?
Yes HE is, given that William Storey is the CEO of Rich Energy. The enigmatic figurehead definitely gives us plenty of content. He’s a big bike fan, and with a beard like that, we can’t exactly disguise him. So yes, he’ll be around. We were thinking a milk float for a paddock scooter
Looks like they're finally attempting some half-sensible spin and marketing on last year's clusterf*ck. Still waiting for them to file accounts, though...
