About Bournemouth Kawasaki
Bournemouth Kawasaki specilaise in being Solus Kawasaki Road bike dealers alongside running a very successful racing team. They were the official Kawasaki UK BSB entrant for 2016-2019 as well as Isle of Man TT front runners.
Racing has always been a huge part of life at Bournemouth Kawasaki, which brings a number of challenges such as costs of products, R&D Development and securing top quality staff and riders.
Vantage were easy to work with and they made it very easy for us to give them the correct information and work with our key race team staff as well as our accounts team. They explained clearly what qualified and what didn't. They had worked with similar style teams before, so they knew what they were looking for and the details needed to recover the R&D relief. It proved to be a big benefit to our business and really helped the team with finances to move forward and stay at the top of our game.Pete Extance Owner Bournemouth Kawasaki
In depth technical knowledge
Vantage were recommended to Bournemouth Kawasaki by another team within the paddock. Team owner Pete Extance says, "We hadn’t heard of R&D Tax Credits, but then we were introduced to Vantage by another team. We wanted to explore the option of gaining some R&D cost back to the race team."
We visited the workshop in Bournemouth to discuss the development of the Superbikes used in the BSB and Isle of Man TT championships. The qualifying activity was extensive and as Motorsport enthusiasts ourselves, the data gathering experience was a pleasure for both sides!
Benefit beyond our expectations
"We've received substantial rewards for our research and development work. We will certainly do as much R&D as possible going forward and use the funds to ensure the team is funded to win more championships."
