Attempting repairs on the day.

1/4/17 -The 2017 campaign got underway with a bad start the bike suffering from an engine failure of the tuned engine before leaving the pits on the test day at Darley Moor.

With the race the next day Mike was unable to repair the bike and did not compete in round one as planned.

Mike assisted in the pits with some of his fellow competitors and has secured the use of a standard engine until a tuned one can be made ready ( hoping that the original can be repaired with some new heads).

Big thanks to RV racing for the borrow of an engine and Jason Wilkes (roadandrace telford) for some spares to hopefully repair the original.

Mallory Plum Pudding 26/12/16- Mike competed in the final race of the year at Mallory Park. On the day the classes were all combined to create one large grid. The track conditions were cold and drying, Mike opted to use the dry tyres which made the first race difficult and with a lot of others crashing he opted to retire and bring the bike in safely for the second race.


Conditions had improved slightly for the second race and after qualifying 28th, Mike gained several positions and finished in 18th. Though not near the front, Mike was happy with this result as it was an open class and the majority of bikes in front were from much higher cc classes.


Completing the race also gave Mike the signature of a third track to go towards getting his licence upgraded to Clubman. Mike now only needs two more finishes to be able to upgrade his licence.
