Imola and Rijeka double

The team head into the third round of the ECS in third place, behind the young, on form Neates and Team Taurus, both of whom have had a pair of top results.

As in the first two rounds , Hugh Brasher and Mike Dickinson will be on the no.3 bike with Peter Linden and newly married Ian Simpson on the no.4 bike.

Hugh and Mike have had two horrible races with a clutch failure at Donington whilst in a rostrum position, followed by a crash apiece at Spa. Things can only go better.....

Peter and Ian are both fit and well for the third round and determined to put another strong performance in to try to make an impression on this championship.

After Imola, Peter will try Andy Abraham's very nice TZ350F out for size at Reijka, after Ian gave the bike a thumbs -up after testing it briefly at a rain soaked Cadwell Park three weeks ago.

Other news;

Bill Simpson has completed the first BSR TZ350 frame for Peter to ride next year. The team will build this bike up over the winter for a test in March.
Long term team  member and ex-Shell Endurance Academy boss, Roy Hood has also commissioned Bill Simpson for a sister BSR frame. Currently we are looking for TZ 350 engines for both these bikes.

EVO750 Class at ECS. Disappointingly there has been no news of the alternative ECS class to take the series forward, as the numbers competing in the current categories continues to fall. At Spa the organisers made proposals for a class based upon the world championship rules ( 1984-1991) but there has been silence since.

More after Imola....
