Kamikaze Race Team Brushed Cotton Tee Grey
This grey, brushed cotton men’s tee features a bold yet classic Kamikaze graphic and made up of 100% pure cotton it feels luxuriously soft to wear.
This collection celebrates our history, bringing back the motorcycle design from the 1970’s Leicestershire Kamikaze Motorcycle Display Team.
Thanks to a Mr. Leicester article, we learned that the Kamikaze team was started and run by local bobby, Pc Maurice Tidmarsh, so that youngsters could learn motorbike stunts in a supervised environment. During their displays, the riders would wow the crowds by riding their bikes over cars, humans, through fire and standing on each other’s shoulders to form a human pyramid.
As the club grew they needed support and Everards gave the club £10,000 to buy new bikes. They got 125cc Kawasakis. They were red and yellow and had ‘Tigers’ written on the side.
