Some pics from the weekend of my first trophy
racing the SV and the Meta magazine issue 3 release party where the
Ronin 'B' bike along with my BSA chopper and Project Retard (The
Womble) where on display.
FTWCO rider #47 checking in after round one of the DTRA
National champs in Leicester UK. I am competeing this year on
my buddies 750 triumph imported from the US of A along side
organsing the series and riding a 450 honda at the back of the Pro
class. Anyway we had the best DTRA meeting to date to sun was
shining and we had a record entry. I didnt bother with
practice on the Triumph as it was wet and I didnt want to get it
dirty. So i used the first heat as practice. Anyways i could find
the rear brake pedal so i rode brakeless for a 2nd place. I
managed a win in the final and got home before midnight so all
good. I want to thank Wilky for the loan of the bike for the 2015
season, FTWCO for the great gear and all my racing buddies who
support the DTRA and my dream of having fun on Dirt Tracks without
having to fly to the states.
Well, my first race since breaking my leg
last spring is in the books. We hit Waco, TX for the ½ mile. I
won the Open AM class on Saturday, and took 3rd on
Sunday. The bike was great! Thanks to Newbold’s off-season motor
work. Leg feels good. I think I’m ready! Photos by Flat-Out Motorsport Photography
Sad note to the weekend: My son’s RM85 was
cut from our trailer and stolen out of the hotel parking lot
Friday night before the races. It was heartbreaking.
Here are some pics from the last race in Del
Mar. It was a blast. 20 hour drive in my buddy's 72 econoline but we
spent more time working on it than driving it. Had some good races
with Co-Built Geoff and Dimitri Coste the Frenchman was flying.
FInished 2nd to him twice in the vintage twins class but I managed
to beat him with a win in the stacked 400cc+ class.
Also a couple of
spy pics of the colors I will be racing on Pikes Peak this year. I
am very excited to be racing a special build Ronin race bike on the
hill this year. If any one wants to attend get a spot at The Lone
Duck Campgound for the last week of June. It is a unique race but it
gets more and more restriction and lame every year so if you have
wanted to see it make it happen!
