Bike night again

Well today it was great to talk about my passion again. Ben Crowe from Team 99 Racing spoke about racing the SV650 in the mini twins part of the Thundersport racing. Thundersports, being the second largest following in the bike racing season after the British Super Bikes. Ben Crowe fits out bikes not just for himself but also for other teams and individual racers. Ben is very busy prepping bikes for the beginning of the season which kicks off at Brands Hatch on the weekend of 3rd March.

Talking to Scott Hudson from Gearlink Kawasaki, who seems just a little excited to get the season underway which starts on the Easter bank holiday weekend. Teaming up with British Super sport rider Ben Wilson who lost out to the championship by just a single point in 2011. So far he seems happy with the team and all the preparation in getting the bike running. Only down side for Scott is that he has only rode at a few of the tracks. Luckily he will have help from team mates who have set ups for suspension from previous years. Scott hopes to have his very own web page up and running by end of this week. Keep an eye out for the site www.scotthudsonracing.co.uk

Last and not least, a man who has won championships both here in the UK and his home country of Australia, Billy McConnell. Not knowing who his team mate would be, how much of a shock was it when he finds out it would be long term friend Glenn Richards. With Bill third place in the British super sports in 2011 and BSB Evo champion in Glenn Richards, Alan Smith owner of Smiths(Gloucester) Racing will be the team to watch in the 2012 season. Bill’s day job is testing bikes for Triumph. Along with Glenn Richards and another Ozzie, Paul Young. It’s good to know that the bikes you will be riding are tested by current sports bike riders
