Well done Joe and Fiona!

Festival of Power, Santa Pod

Joe Elliott ex Buell rider and 2014 Gas Bike champion in Supertwins, now campaigning a BMW in 8.50 Bike, ran a 8.99 at the Pod in his first competitive outing on the new ‘bike.

Fiona Moor was unbeatable all weekend in SP SuperTwins ET (Note NOT a NAST championship round) when Phil Cordelle unfortunately red-lit in the final. Siobhan Moor was 3rd in her first twins outing and Giselle Moor was a non-starter.



Due to very unsettled weather predictions along with forecasts of heavy showers and strong winds, after consulting with the Met Office and other weather bureau for the area we have reluctantly decided to postpone and reschedule this weekend’s 28th/29th March Season Opening Public Track Event for three weeks’ time; April 18th/19th. As a business we never wish to ‘postpone’ an event and can only work with the forecasts which can be both accurate and sometimes wildly inaccurate. The biggest issue is that decisions need to be made at least 24 hours before an event to allow time to advise as many people (drivers & riders) as possible and, inevitably means taking a calculated decision based upon forecasts and probabilities that can sometimes alter 24 hours later. We would like to apologise for the short notice and any inconvenience caused. Our next Public Track Weekend is in three weeks 18th/19th April where we hope the weather will be much more appealing!
