We woke up Saturday morning to sun and a 30MPH tailwind. Brilliant!!! Maybe a PB to be had. Motty turned up with about 10 minutes to spare, and as he was getting into his leathers Dave ‘the hat’ took the multi-million pound Repsol Honda VTR1000 Firestorm to scrutineering (Robbie’s old smouldering breeze) for Team Dobbie and Mott. Meanwhile Leo Lester was having some clutch problems and James Jenkins AKA ‘Mandy’ was just loving taking his new TLR1000 to bits to find a misfire.
Qualifying was held on the hour 11am, noon and 1pm. Leo fixed his clutch for the last qualifier as did Mandy who finally discovered a dodgy wire to one coil. So eventually everyone qualified.

for being pants at qualifying which he proudly wore all day Sunday at the RWYB.
So after the break for lunch it was into the first round of elims. It was to be Team Elysion to take on B+H Racing. First up Duncan on the Team Elysion TRX850 against Terry on the B+H Harley 1200 Sportster. Given away with a red light from Duncan. Terry actually ran an 11.401 on an 11.40 dial-in so would have been hard to beat.
Next Fiona on the four cylinder ZX9r Elysion Kawasaki against the might of the slick and bar Harley Davidson. Again the win went to B+H Racing with Andrew going 10.27 on a 10.20 dial-in.
Phil Cordelle on the Hysteria Racing TLR1000 against Dave ‘the hat’. Break-out for ‘the hat’ so Phil is through.
Andy Ball on the road legal Yamaha TZR250 (a man to keep an eye on in the future, very good rider) versus Motty on the Dobbie+Mott ‘Smouldering Breeze’, a misbehaving breeze gave Andy an easy victory. (believe the misfire was caused by a faulty relay on the air-shifter delay unit – Robbie)
Robbie on the Super Penguin Honda SP1 slick and bar against Leo on the Section 59 Racing R1 (with gas or without???). Close race, Leo takes it with a 9.53 on a 9.50 dial-in against Robbie’s 10.19 on a 10.15.
Cary slick and bar SV1000S versus Mandy on the street TLR1000. Cary takes the win with a 10.41 on a 1034 dial-in.
Terry on the street B+H Harley 1200 Sportster goes on a 0.032 red to give Phil’s Hysteria TLR1000 the win.
Andrew slick and bar Harley Sportster was close against that man Andy Ball on the road-going TZR250, but no cigar with Andy running 13.40 on a 13.38 dial-in with a 0.09 light. Mr. Ball is through!
Leo’s Section59 Racing Yamaha R1 up against Cary on the slick and barSV1000S. Cary missed a shift to see Leo go through.
Into the Semi’s
Phil on the Hysteria TLR1000 gets a bye into the final. Leo and the R1 against that man Andy Ball on the TZR250 and the race is lost by an appalling light from Leo with Andy running a 13.45 on a 13.38 dial-in.
Into the final and Phil on the TLR1000 is looking for his first real race of the day. Surely the man for the task was Andy. He had ridden faultlessly all day – pressure, luck or just racing, Andy pulls a red and gives it to Phil. Well done Phil, you have to be in it to win it.
So at the conclusion of the first round of the ‘National Association of SuperTwins Challenge Cup Series’ the first race trophy goes to King Phil Cordelle of Hysteria Racing aboard the Suzuki TLR1000. Runner-up was that man on the YamahaTZR250 – Mr. Andy Ball.
