Sam Burman Racing 2015 Calendar Launch 22 November 2014

I recently called in to the Green Tree Pub in Messingham for Sam Burmans calendar launch. Sam, a work colleague is once again contesting the Motorstar British Championship in 2015 and her immaculate WNT sponsored Moto 3 bike was on display in the pub. As I was early the bar wasn't open and it was coffee and cake for me but I was surprised how many were there given the time. The bar opened at midday and later in the evening there was live music from North Lincs Band - Box Pavilion. Also in the afternoon one of Sams sponsors, Richtoy was demonstrating Oset electric off-road bikes in the car park. Regretably I missed out on all of this as I couldn't stay but not before I grabbed my copy of the calendar which was even better than last years. You can follow Sam on her website, twitter and Facebook.

British Superbikes Qualifying 24 August 2014

Conditions were surprisingly good given the weather forecast with some good warm sunny spells which would ultimately be in direct contrast to raceday.
The qualifying session saw Shane "Shakey" Byrne smashed the Cadwell Park lap record on his way to claiming pole position by nearly a full second in front of Ryuichi Kiyonari, Buildbase BMW, with Tommy Bridewell completeing the top three positions.

Auto66 Cadwell Park 18 May 2014

Already May and this was my first meeting of the year! I was initially confused as the timetable didn't tie in with the program and I only found out later that there was a delay due to some marshals arriving late. There was also some hope that competitors may have been able to make it from the North West 200 but unfortunately they didn't make it due to ferry problems.
There was a huge grid of Superkarts which as ever were highly entertaining and really fast. Unfortunately the numbers in the bike races were much smaller. Despite this there were some excellent performances with both Mark Ess and Craig Neve in dominant form and I was impressed by Matthew Rangeley on his Aprilia RRV450. More images in the gallery.

Trackside - Documentary Motorsports Marshalling Film. Update.

Only 7 days left and the project is still short of its £5000 target. At this moment, 39 backers have pledged a total of £1390.
I'm surprised by the response as this film will look at motorsport from a different angle and there are benefits to backers depending on the amount pledged. Although pledges can be as little as £5, £15 gets you a high definition download of the film - its just like buying the film! Theres also one each of shirt, cap and model car courtesy of Toyota Hybrid WEC team signed by Wurtz and Davidson - each one is available for £80.
All this is academic though as the project will only be funded if the target is met by the 2nd March 2014 9.00pm. Further details at Kickstarter.

Updated 2 March - A close run effort, £5037 raised by 47 backers just in the nick of time!
