Proper Job!

Guy Martin brought his 2012 road racing season to a close with five wins at Scarborough’s Oliver’s Mount this weekend. He “re-claimed” the coveted Steve Henshaw International Gold Cup for the eighth time and gave Moneymore based TAS Racing their first Superbike wins at the North Yorkshire circuit.

 

Riding Tyco TAS Suzuki machinery, Guy opened his account on the Saturday with wins in the opening Superbike race of the Darran Lyndsay Trophy, the David Jeffries Supersport race and a further win in a 600cc Supersport heat. That was followed on Sunday with wins in the second leg of the Darran Lyndsay Trophy and the Steve Henshaw International Gold Cup – making three Superbike and two Supersport wins in total. If it hadn’t been for an intermittent electrical problem that forced him to retire from the lead of the David Jefferies Supersport race on day two, it would have been a clean sweep of six wins from six starts. Speaking afterwards, a delighted Guy said:

 

It’s been a great day and nice to get my hands back on the Gold Cup for the eighth time. I enjoyed the battle with McGuinness and Co for the win, which made it that little bit more special, and to give Tyco Suzuki their first win is mint. The boys always put in a big effort for me so they really deserve it and the big Suzuki never missed a beat. We almost, almost, had the clean sweep only for what I believe to be a tilt switch problem that caused the bike to cut out in the last race. She was grand when I got her back up onto the fat of the tyre, but it was too risky to take a chance with it. We’ll be happy with our lot: five wins is not to be sniffed at.

Right. what do you reckon to these pics?

 

I went on a road trip with the Red Torpedo boss a week or two ago, I know it’s a bold statement but I’d reckon it was the coolest show I’ve ever been to. It was called the Glemseck 101 in Stuttgart, Germany.

 

What about that number plate look? On it like jam on toast eh? It was from there to a bit of moped racing in Scotland, top job, ta to bruce for letting me ride his steed.

 

Was gutted i couldnt race at scarborough. I had a bit of blood bother, went for an oil-change, not a lot of success though. I’m putting it down to a bad earth or something – what do you recon? I was told “measure twice cut once”. Now I’m not sure.

Tut tut tut, I know it’s late but I’ve been a busy boy, sorry.

 

Well I reckon there’s a fair bit to cover since my last post – end to end mountain bike race, Scarborough gold cup, coast to coast bike race and the usual goings on.

 

Me, Dan and Aiden went over to the end to end mountain bike race in the Isle of Man, we was kindly put up, fed and watered by Tom and his misses and had a right good race. I beat last years place but only just. Thanks a million for all the support, sorry about some of the strange faces I was pulling, I was in pain – a bit more training is needed I reckon and loosing a few more pounds wouldn’t hurt would it?
