The Sweatshop Phase One Team head for the final race of the year next Wednesday. The ever improving partnership of Hugh Brasher and Peter Linden will try to build on the team’s run of success following wins at Mettet, Oschersleben (Superbike) and Imola.
Practice is on Friday, Qualifying on Saturday, and the 2 leg 2 hour races are to be held on Saturday evening from 18.15 to 20.15 and on Sunday afternoon starting at 14.30hrs.

Two items of news have come up recently:

Firstly, DG Sports (the organisers of the Spa Classic Endurance Race) have leaked that they are planning an international Classic Endurance Race series for 2013; involving at least Belgian (Spa), German (Oschersleben) and Spanish (Aragon) rounds. We will keep you posted as this develops. Needless to say, we WILL be part of it!

And secondly, the Classic Bol organisers will run a “post classic” class with the main races, for bikes originating between 1984 and 1991 at this year’s event.
It is assumed that as the Classic Bol is 10 years old now, the organisers feel there is room for machines of this period. We will watch this with interest as the Team’s “Riders” Kawasaki’s were delivered in early 1991 and would therfore be eligible…. perhaps Steve Manley or Doug Toland would like to get back on…

See you at Magny Cours!

Finally, the Team are currently seeking volunteers for the 2013 season and involvement in the races.
Anybody is welcome, you don’t even need to be bike familiar – timekeepers, cooks, gofors and anyone interested are all welcome,.. be prepared to work though!
