Mallory Park


May 6th & October 13th

Words from Lynda Lockey


Get your teeth into this one! It’s back!!!! The much loved Dongo trophy returns to Mallory Park this year.

Jonny Luebke of Dirty Weekender Campervans has been in talks with Natalie at Mallory and EMRA, with a view to holding a meeting at the beginning of May.

It would be an excellent opportunity to gain TT signatures, although it will be open to everyone and will be an absolute winner to have sidecars back on this prestigious circuit!

2023 TT Regulations, things of note

I haven’t had a chance to read all the way through yet (hardly read it at all to be honest), but there are a couple of points that have been brought up in conversation with Mark and Tim that you may want to look at before heading off to the Island.

Link to download of TT REGS (in case the box below doesn’t appear on your mobile)

If we see any more we will add them on here..

6.2. All main mounting pins/plates such as forward of the steering head must be secured
to the bodywork with a steel plate no smaller that 100mm square. This must be both
riveted and bonded (e.g. fibreglass/resin) to the bodywork in order to render it a
permanent and secure fixing point. For verification purposes all Rivet Heads must be
intact and visible on the outside of the bodywork.

6.3. There must be no fewer than four main mounting pins/pegs secured with “R” clips
dispersed appropriately around the main bodywork. All bodywork fixing pins/pegs
must always be secured with “R” clips or similar.

Jenny ‘Triker’ Wells. R.I.P Our friend.

It is with a great sadness that I have been asked to let everyone know that Jenny Wells has passed away this morning after a very short battle with cancer.

I am in a state of shock here. The last I heard from Jen was not that long ago when she was saying she wouldn’t be doing any more photography due to illness and then just days ago that she was too weak for treatment.

Jen my friend, you will be missed at race meetings.
Not only for the photos you loved taking and that were appreciated so much by so many, but for the proper laughs we had at circuits everywhere, if ever there was a chance to laugh at anything I got wrong you were always there.

Details of further arrangements will be posted when they are ready. I will see you all at The Revival

I’ll have one or maybe even two for you there Jen, and I won’t be alone in doing so. xx

I had to include a few shots 😉 ..

Rick’s best side 😉
