Technical Sports Racing (also known as TSR) is a Japanese company that produces components for motorcycles.
Since 1991 they have participated in the world championship. For the first few seasons, they raced only as a team. In 1998, they entered the 250 class as a constructor and expanded to the 500 class the following season.
TSR took part in the world championship both as a team and as a manufacturer, working closely with Honda.
In 1991, the only rider of the team is Noboru Ueda, who won two victories in the season.
In 1993, they entered the 125 class with Kazuto Sakata and Takeshi Tsujimura, who finished second and third in the standings with three victories in total.
In the following season, Takeshi Tsujimura entered in the 125 class, and won four times during the season, flanked by Tomoko Igata and for three races by Tomomi Manako.
In 1995, the team confirmed Tomoko Igata and Tomomi Manako for the 125 class and took Takeshi Tsujimura up to the 250 class.
The following year they lined up at the start of the 250 class, with Takeshi Tsujimura and Yasumasa Hatakeyama.
In 1997, they fielded a Honda NSR 500 in the 500 class entrusted to Nobuatsu Aoki, who finished third in the standings, while in the 250 class the starting rider was Takeshi Tsujimura, who finished in seventh place.
In 1998, the drivers of the FCC TSR team were Matt Wait in the 500 class on a Honda NSR 500 V2 and Haruchika Aoki in the 250 class, driving the Honda NSR 250. TSR also participates as a manufacturer, supplying the TSR-Honda 250 in the middle class to other riders, such as Luca Boscoscuro, Jeremy McWilliams, Roberto Rolfo, and Jason Vincent, finishing in 4th place in the constructors' class championship.

In 1999, they were at the start in the 500 class with Haruchika Aoki, flanked by José Luis Cardoso, the latter with a team called Maxon TSR, being replaced in a grand prix by David de Gea. In the constructors' classification they were sixth. They participated with the TSR-Honda AC50M, a motorcycle equipped with a frame designed by TSR itself, with an engine supplied by Honda. The only direct presence as a team is that of Tekkyū Kayō.
The following year, the driver for the premier class Yoshiteru Konishi was replaced for a grand prix by Tekkyū Kayō, and the final result in the constructors' classification is 5th place. In the 250 class, the role of constructor prevailed again and fourth position in the standings was confirmed.
In 2001, they only took part in the 125 class with Noboru Ueda, who obtained a victory in the Italian Grand Prix, taking 5th place among the constructors.
In 2002, Andrea Ballerini was hired for the 125 class, who was replaced in the last races by Dario Giuseppetti, in turn flanked twice by Joshua Waters.
In 2010, TSR returned to the start of the world championship in the Moto2 class by supplying its TSR 6 to the JiR team which, for sponsorship reasons, enrolled it as a Motobi. The only TSR-branded participation took place in the Italian Grand Prix by fielding Yusuke Teshima.
In 2011, the relationship with JiR continued, with only Alex De Angelis. They also took part directly in the Italian Grand Prix by running Tomoyoshi Koyama. The relationship continued from 2012-2014.
