Race technician Zane Mumford brought his long experience in preparing GP motocross machinery, where the extreme physical demands of that branch of motorsport make ergonomic setup essential, into play on the 1198 Ducati for Scott. As part of a number of modifications, Martins Rubber were happy to use our expertise in rubber fabrication to provide some custom seat foams to allow evaluation of a variety of posture changes for better performance off the start and in cornering.
