Aintree Round (1) 13/5/2017

Overnight rain left a somewhat damp track at the more than grippy Liverpool circuit which also happens to be the loop used by the TV guys when videoing the Grand National Horse race once it crosses the famous Melling Road. A rather gloomy sky was the order of the day when I got there just before 8am...

Re: Three Sisters circuit has closed, did you race there?

If it is true then it is another sad loss for many reasons. It was built on reclaimed land that used to be known as the Wigan Alps (3 slag heaps also known as the 'Sisters') It was used as a motorcycle racing venue with many local clubs running each and every weekend of the year, eg ,The Vintage clu...

Aintree Test Day 3/5/17

It was good to get back to the Aintree club circuit for the start of the 2017 racing season with their annual test day which was blessed with pure sunshine and a bit of a breeze and just enough to stop the spectators from getting too excited. We usually get a very good selection of Isle of Man TT si...

Re: Its that TTime again

They really should wear a mask when asking for ferry fees, our trip to the Isle for the Pre TT Classic and practice week in 2017 so far has come to £588 for 3 adults, I child in a short wheel base VW Campervan.

TT Attack...What's the point.

I seem to re-call in the recent past people not showing the Mountain Course on the IOM the sort of respect it deserves with similar statements to the one being promoted by Subaru and their TT Attack and the DeD allowing such nonsence to take place. In fact Mark Higgins said himself that his 2011 mom...

Very nice, but I think you should be made to camp like the rest of us.

Re: Colin Jacobs

My introduction to sidecar racing was on a fine example of engineering provided by Colin Jacobs, it was such a fine machine that on one occasion while racing at Aintree we completed a five laps race without the need for our engine sprocket nylock nut to be secured in place. ( it had been picked up b...

Race Day Aintree 14th May 2016

Yet another fantastic day to go racing sidecars in the North West of England, a great line up of entrants which included a good selection of TT drivers and passengers some who like to use the Aintree circuit as a bit of a shake down before loading up and setting off for the island. Also with The FSR...

Re: Past and Present Stars @ Darley....

A couple of crews we forgot to mention on the grid shot were Mick Bodice and (the late) Dave Wells , second row Left then there was Barry Brindley and Scott Whiteside, second row Right.

Front Right I think was Rob Fisher and Pete Hill .
