RACE BIKES AND PREPARATION
Club motorbike racing is in our blood! for the pure pleasure it brings us and the odd trophy, but always an entertaining weekend when we are on the road!
I had my first race in 1978 on board a Vic Camp 250 single 2 stroke. Going into the 80s a Rotax 250 & Harris TZ350 were the weapons of choice. The last 2 stroke He raced was in 1991 on a LC350.
From the 1990s its been 1000cc superbikes, either a Fireblade or R1. 4 Fireblades from 1992 to 2010 and 5 R1s from 1998 to the 2016 model being raced this season.
Jake started racing Minitwins 4 years ago and having learnt his trade has now progressed to a R6 for this season.
The Speedshop backs the racing, but our aim this year is to progress other youngsters in the sport. Not just on tarmac but dirt as well.
