THE TEAM BEHIND JBR

How the  JBR team started

The Jones Brothers Racing team are based in North Wales and was established because Dan, Osian and Iwan were 3 young boys who were mad on bikes and it was obvious from the beginning that we had some talent in the team!

The team was put together in 2011,  when the first mini bikes were purchased and they decided to go from motocross to tarmac.

When it comes to racing, the team have lots of experience.  Steve and Phil have run 2 years alongside world renowned Ten Kate in the Moriwaki Cup.  This season, JBR teamed up with Cheshire based Maxton Suspension who have years of suspension set up experience and were the first Standard Moto3 to run Pirelli tyres, creating a great working relationship with Jason Griffiths.

Steve Jones – Team Manager & Mechanic

Steve had raced competitively since the year 2000. In 2011 he was Crewe and South Cheshire double champion. This was when the Jones brothers began to show an interest in racing so Steve began to concentrate on their racing careers.

The Support Team

Phil Roberts, Steve Poole and Tim Devine are ex-racers and family friends. Rachel Lloyd deals with our data and telemetry.

The Motostar paddock has been refreshingly helpful and we have built strong relationships with other teams.

JBR team ambitions

This season, the teams ambitions are to move Dan onto the next stage of his racing career. Having fun along the way is a must and hopefully we’ll pick up some podiums!

The JBR ambitions for the 2017 include moving up to the full Motostar and then in the future on to Europe.  The aim is to try out for Red Bull Rookies again afer Dan narrowly missed out in 2015 and 2o16 .
