Staff blog: The toughest test ever!

This year is going to epic, one I’m going to look back on for years to come and it’s mainly going to be down to my lovely ZX-6R. Just last week I took delivery of my new Kawasaki and unusually for me, I’m treating her with kid-gloves, nice and gentle for the first few hundred miles, before unleashing its full ...

Used Buying Guide: Kawasaki ZX-10R

We can safely say Kawasaki didn’t really produce an out-and-out sports bike with the ZX-9R, especially towards the end of its life cycle, when it was facing competition from the mighty Yamaha R1 and Suzuki GSX-R1000. The old 900 was more of a soft sports bike with great power and comfort rather than a cutting edge sportster with razor sharp ...

Ian Watson Spring Cup blog

Racing has its ups and downs, and the Ian Watson Spring Cup at Oliver’s Mount certainly had that! The weather was grim at times; hail stones, driving rain and temperatures struggling to get above freezing, which even caught out the experts like Ryan Farquhar. But then the sun came out. The track, as always, was a joy to ride – ...

Ducati 848 Challenge blog: Silverstone

I couldn’t turn down racing in the 848 Challenge at Silverstone in front of packed BSB crowd but it was a baptism of fire, thrown in at the deep end learning a new track and new bike, but great fun. First practice didn’t really go to plan, I wasn’t clicking with the 848 and was still learning the huge 3.6 ...

Oliver's Mount racing blog: Barry Sheene Festival

My road racing season continues but this time at the tight and twisty Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough. Oliver’s Mount is the last true road racing circuit left in the UK, nearly 2.4 miles of park road, narrow in places with a few jumps thrown in for good measure. I was there competing in the modern open class, as part of the ...
