Sweatshop Phase One picked up its 5th FIM Championship last weekend by winning the final round of the European Classic Series at Aragon.
Stéphane Mertens and Ian Simpson fought off massive challenges from Team Force and Team Taurus, as well as team mates Peter Lindén and Mike Dickinson on a second Sweatshop Phase One entry.
At the flag, Mertens/Simpson were some 53 seconds in front of the Lindén entry with Team Force trailing by over a lap after a last minute splash and dash,
Peter Lindén and Mike Dickinson played a superb supporting role to give Sweatshop its first 1-2 result ever.
Russell Benney said – This win is dedicated to the whole team, but particularly to Hugh Brasher, who made it all possible, but could not be here to share in the glory.
All in the team wish Hugh’s wife Claire a speedy return to good health –
More details later in the week.
