BST is the culmination of an extraordinary partnership between a former European motorcycle racing championships rider and a Microsoft marketing-guru, with a determination to create the best carbon fibre
products in the world. Gary Turner, the design and production guru at BST, raced in the European Supermono Series back in the mid 1990’s, whilst Terry Annecke was an executive at the international giants IBM and Microsoft.
On returning to South Africa in 2000, Gary incorporated crucial aerospace carbon technology in developing his first prototype BST wheels. Blackstone Tek (BST) started operating in 2002 when Terry partnered with Gary, and the company has since produced more than 30 000 wheels worldwide.
