Logic suggests you’re at fault when you run into the back of someone else, but this isn’t always the case when you’re dealing with clowns…

I think learning advanced riding techniques is a good thing but it’s not without some downsides.

We haven’t had a winner for the Kawasaki KLX250 prize bike we are giving away so we are going to start drawing two numbers each week!

Back to winning ways! I got away and won by 7s. It feels great to win again and it’s a reminder of just how tough GP1 really is. Two more races this afternoon, GP1 first.

Well, I won. It was flag to flag from pole with the fastest lap (a lap record) and by ten seconds. In F1 that’s called a grand slam. I call it a lot of fun. Although I wasn’t dicing with anyone it was such a pleasure to ride this bike on this track. By the […]

1st place! It was really wet so I didn’t want to lead or try too hard before my tyres warmed up. I got a good start but let Keith Smith and Mark Andrew through at the first corner. Smithy then crashed at the Old Hairpin and Mark opened a few seconds lead while I got […]

Another good win, by 13 seconds this time, though I was a bit gutted to miss the lap record by a few hundredths of a second. Amazingly Chris Matthews nabbed second place on the last lap having started on the back of the grid. Very well done to him. The last race is in two […]

I led the race from flag to flag to win by eight seconds from Andrew Plaskitt and Mark Andrew third. That means I need only one point in the next race to seal the championship. Of course, I’d still like to get as many wins as possible for the year… Wish me luck Wilko

Short version – I won! The rain stopped an hour before the race and the sun came out so the track was drying fast. I checked the circuit with ten minutes to go and it was still damp so I went for my harder wets which work like intermediates. Thanks to brilliant help from good […]

It seemed especially unlikely, but from 31st on the grid I won the first race. I crossed the line at the end of the first lap in third place and knew then that a win was possible. With the BST wheels fitted, the bike is fantastic. I’ll need to push hard to have a chance […]

Another comfortable win though such was the level of attrition that only one other Streetfighter A bike finished. We really need more entrants as it’s a great class. The biggest news is that my team-mate, Nigel ‘Broadband’ Davis, placed third in class B in only his second event. He had a great scrap too. What […]

Another blog, another apology. Sorry for not posting results yet (it worried my nan). Here’s a brief rundown on both races. I was nervous before the first race as Marsden had been quicker in qualifying. I had a plan, but even if it worked I knew it would be a tight race. I got a […]

Erm, I won. By 15 seconds. My start was ok and I was third on the first lap, second by the end of it and in the lead on the third lap. After that I got my head down and pushed for a couple of laps, scoring a new record of 1m14.2s on the way. […]

This feels so good to write – I won. That’s the first win since July for various reasons, and it was by 8.5 seconds. I got a poor start and slipped to fourth, but passed Smith and Denyer on the first lap and Morley at the start of the second. After that I put my […]

Race two was loads of fun, dicing with the Streetfighter B machines. I was fourth in class again and managed to grab sixth overall on the last lap. That’s the very best I could hope for this weekend, so I’m happy. The FireStorm is going well for what it is. I tried to improve the […]

Sunday’s first race was adrenalin fuelled even before it began. It took a couple of goes to bump start the bike, and then I got stuck between a load of caravans in the jammed paddock on the way to the grid! You really couldn’t make it up.
