    The 2005 Bennetts British Superbike Champion Gregorio Lavilla, Leon Haslam and the rest of the Airwaves Ducati Team have been celebrating their season's successes at the International Motorcycle and Scooter Show at the NEC in Birmingham this week.

    The outstanding successes of the Airwaves Ducati riders were recognised at the show in the British Superbike Championship Awards. For the first time the awards were open to the public and a huge crowd gathered in the MCN Race Paddock to see Gregorio Lavilla officially collect his 2005 Bennetts British Superbike Champions Trophy as well as the Bennetts Rider's rider of the Year, an award which is voted for by all the rider's in the British Superbike Championship. A rather surprised Leon Haslam also picked up the Bennetts Most Improved Rider trophy voted for by BSB fans. With 33 podium finishes in total, 22 from Lavilla and 11 from Haslam, it has been GSE Racing's most successful season which is reflected in Gregorio and Leon's prestigious awards.

    On winning the Bennetts Rider's Rider title, Lavilla, said: "This award rounds off a fantastic season for me and the Airwaves Ducati team. It's a great championship and I am honoured that the other rider's have named me as the Bennetts Rider's Rider. Next season's Championship will be good, there will a lot of competition and tough races but I will be ready for that and of course I will be trying to win the Championship and this award again."

    Following its Championship winning return to British Superbikes in its first year back GSE Racing know that none of it would have been possible without its sponsors and the team puts its success down too excellent team work and outstanding support. The team would like to thank its sponsors, supporting partners, media and fans alike especially its title sponsor Wrigley's Airwaves.

    Colin Wright commented "It is a team effort, from the riders and mechanics to the support staff. We are lucky to have had support from our title sponsor Wrigley's Airwaves and Ducati Corse have supplied excellent machinery. Technical support from Dunlop and Q8Oils has been invaluable to the team's success. Also this season would not have been possible without the support of GSE Group who continue to drive the team's success."

    The team would also like to thank Dread, Dainese, Renthal and DID. Barrus and Malaguti and Teng Tools. Thanks also to DAF, Alphabet Signs, Rage Designs, Meridian Self Drive, Highland Spring and Vaio Professional.

    Team Principal Darrell Healey, added "I'd like to thank the whole team for pulling together in what was a tremendous result. The team is very grateful to all their sponsors and know that a season as successful as 2005 would not have been possible without them."
