I am planning to chronicle my introduction to motorbike racing in these pages with a view to keeping friends updated and also as an aid for anyone considering dipping a toe.
Since around 2000 I have been enjoying trackdays both in UK and Europe, averaging 10-15 days a year. Bikes I have tracked include TLR, RSVR, 950SM, GSXR750 and S1000rr. The latest bike is a track dedicated S1000rr, one of the early ones bought new by me. It did 2000 miles on the road before it became exclusively a track bike. It is now fairly extensively modified and puts out 198BHP at the rear wheel.
2013 was the year I did my first official race, entering four solo races and one endurance race in the No Limits Racing series. My first blog will chronicle that.
Plans for next year are an engine refresh over the winter in preparation for entering all seven rounds of the No Limits Racing Novice 1000 series, in the unlimited category.
