More bad luck for Guy

Web Monkey Gear

The full report isn’t yet in, but photographer on the scene Andy Graves says Guy pulled out on lap 2 of Southern 100 with a flat front tyre. The race was then red flagged when a rider had a heavy collision with a wall. We don’t know the rider’s name, but he was helicoptered to hospital. We obviously hope he’s …

Number 69

Web Monkey Gear

My dad raced at the Isle of Man TT on a P&M GS1000 with a full Yoshimura engine in 1982. That year he was given the number 69. This was at a time before oral sex had been discovered in England. In Lincolnshire anyway. So when some French riders came up smiling and saying ‘Soixante-neuf’. My dad and his mate …

Evening all. Just sat at Wozza’s (my mechanic) house in Morecambe, having a brew, waiting to get a ferry to the Isle of Man for the Southern 100. Today I’ve been doing a bit of flat track (in the Short Track UK series) up at Middlesborough. Pete Boast kindly lent me his CRF 450 Honda for a quick run out. It’s been nearly 7 …

  Photos: Clive Challinor Sorry it’s a bit late folks. The main reason being is it’s my mum and dad’s 30th wedding anniversary, and the’ve buggered off to London for a few days. So me and my brother, Stew, are fairly busy on the trucks and I’ve got a fair bit on, on the barrow job front. Oh well, it keeps me out …

Mallory update

  Photo: Andy Graves Evening all. Hows it all going?  Just sat here at the wonderful Mallory Park. I’d say I was motorbike racing but I don’t think you could really call it that. Mallory, when i rode here last, six years ago, was a track where you could race motorbikes. Now I’d call it a glorified car park, a 1.41 mile …

I did a bit of work this morning, then went to watch my mate Lee (ex-Hydrex spannerman) doing a bit of supermoto at Blyton airfield. I was tea …

He will be taking his Hydrex Bike Animal Fireblade superbike, but not his 600, and is doing the event in a very low-key way. More news …

Thoughts from the tea room

    Photos: Andy Graves Afternoon all. Just sat in the tea room at work watching some stuff you’d be better off not knowing about. Our transport manager is into some rare e-mails, not for this website me thinks. Maybe i should get em to put up a censored section. I don’t want to be getting the blame for corrupting young minds, …

Change of plan
