After a very successful 2013 season Daley is very busy organising and preparing for what promises to be a very exciting 2014 season! Several significant decisions have been made in principle and the details are now being worked out. The necessary sponsorship required to support some major developments and a full race schedule is being negotiated and agreed.
Full details will be announced shortly via this website and the social media, but Daley can already announce that one aspect will be that he will be riding a full-specification Superbike in 2014 and the highlight of the race schedule will be the Isle of Man TT!

Sponsorship for motorcycle racers is very important. Daley greatly values all his sponsors and works hard to reward their support. So it is always pleasing to get complementary feedback from sponsors showing that they appreciate the rider’s efforts. HEL Performance had this to say in a recent testimonial (reproduced with permission):-
HEL Performance have been very fortunate to sponsor Daley over the seasons. He is a great ambassador for both the sport and our products and he offers us a high level of feedback on their use in the most demanding of circumstances. Daley looks after his sponsors with regular and informed communications which offer sound-bites and images to use in social media, advertising campaigns and promotions.
He is a consummate professional. Respected in and out of the paddock he continues to produce excellent results on the road. His dedication and commitment to both racing and his sponsors is second to none, and this is very refreshing in the current economic climate. Providing a serious return on investment for all that are involved with him, each year he continues to just get better and better. Many people use phrases such as “one to watch” or “one for the future” – Daley isn’t that; he is “one for the now“. Everyone involved with Daley Mathison Racing has been so impressed – Get along for the ride.

Friday 8th November
As described in the post below dated 27th October, on Friday 18th October Daley attended a trackday organised by Michelin and BTS at Donington Park Circuit near to Derby. The day had been organised by the companies to give their customers the opportunity to trial ride the Michelin Pilot Power 3 tyre under real trackday conditions and to form their own independent opinions on the tyre’s performance on the circuit.
The Michelin Pilot Power 3 is designed to offer exceptional grip and handling thanks to a new profile and rubber compound designed for sports bikes and roadsters both on the road and on circuits. The Michelin Pilot Power 3 is a new-generation radial road and circuit tyre benefitting from Michelin’s 2CT+ technology which promises a ‘no compromise’ approach between grip and longevity, adding stability when cornering, especially under strong acceleration.
Daley’s role was to mingle with the riders and to offer advice and guidance as well as to assess and demonstrate the tyres’ performance when ridden by him under quasi-racing conditions. Daley himself was very impressed with the Michelin Pilot Power 3 tyres he trialled and was able to lap the GP circuit with very creditable lap times in the low-to-mid 1min 40secs and with impressive confidence-boosting grip allowing ‘elbow down’ cornering through Goddard’s.

Length – 3:26 minutes.
