Whilst the Chinavirus continues to frustrate international travel, the Team return to Donington Park for next weekend’s NG Racing National event. Phil Atkinson will pilot the XR69 in two classses to see how he goes against mostly more modern machinery. It will be the first time for years that the Team have contested a short circuit UK event like this and it is eagerly awaited, as the last race was at Misano some six months ago.
As an aside – this year’s Moto Giro d’ Italia event will start from the Misano paddock straight after the Misano 4hrs race in October. (not a coincidence as we will be transporting many of the old classic bikes to Italy in the race truck)
Peter Linden has fully recovered from his double knee replacement surgery and it raring to go….but just can’t get out of Sweden yet.! We shall have him on the bike at Spa come what may. The Team are scheduled to be on track there for the training day on Thursday 1st July, with free practice on the Friday, followed by qualifying and the race on Saturday evening.
Provided Peter’s race fitness is good, then we hope to get out on the TZs 350s, possibly as part of the superb German Championship, later in the year. Last year’s Most event really was good.
A month ago there was a three hour event in Spain and next week a four hour event is planned at Paul Ricard – both having to be missed due to the restrictions.
As far as this year’s other events are concerned – Misano in October is confirmed, but the other scheduled events at Magny Cours in August and Rijeka in September are yet to be fixed.
We will report back after Donington Park !
