If you’ve dex­trous fin­gers, an abun­dance of pa­tience and a de­sire to build a Marc Mar­quez replica, then you’re in luck. The lat­est re­lease from model spe­cial­ists Tamiya is of Mar­quez’s 2014 Mo­togp cham­pi­onship-win­ning RC213V and it in­cludes de­tails like that year’s sin­gle front air in­take. The kit comes with a clear screen and tank grips, a set of mask­ing stickers to aid paint­ing and a full de­cal kit for Mar­quez’s No.93 paintscheme.

Last year’s MCN Award-win­ning tyres feel more like track­day tyres than sports rubber, but un­like racier tyres they warm up ex­tremely quickly. They of­fer so much con­fi­dence and safety when rid­ing hard that I wanted to stay out and play on them af­ter the test was fin­ished. They give the sense that there’s a huge con­tact patch to lean on in the cor­ners, un­der ac­cel­er­a­tion and on the brakes. They make the S1000RR ex­tremely easy to ride fast, which is shown in the lap time.
