STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN

The Welsh Valleys have always been mystical places, but could there really be a magical new circuit there? Strange things happen, or so Billy Bragg once said, but how strange would it be if the magical vision of a state of the art Grand Prix Circuit actually appeared in the beautiful Welsh valleys? Well we’ve now had 6 years of Gung-Ho statements about the Circuit of Wales changing the face of the economic climate in South Wales, transforming motorsport in the UK and putting the British Motorsport Industry at the forefront of worldwide automotive development. It’s all now starting to look like a bit of a pipe dream though. Before we take a look at whether this new circuit was ever wanted, needed or indeed ever anything more than a house of cards – let’s just look at the events and statements in a very simplified chronological order:-

THE TIMELINE: September 2010: The first reports of a proposed motorsport venue in the South Wales valleys are printed in the motorcycle press. June 2011: The Heads of the Valleys Development Development Company Ltd is registered with Companies House. July 2011: Rassau Track & Leisure Ltd is registered at Companies House. July 2011: The Circuit of Wales project is unveiled to widespread support and excitement. The chosen site is Rassau near Ebbw Vale. Plans are submitted to Blaenau District Council for a £183 million race circuit with attached technology and business park. Some environmental groups, state their opposition to the plan. November 2011: Aventa Capital Partners Ltd is registered at

Companies House (note the order of registrations, it will become significant later). September 2012: The Circuit of Wales is given outline permission and work is set to start on the (now £225 million) project by July 2013. June 2013: The Circuit of Wales Ltd is registered at Companies House. July 2013: Full permission is granted to start work on the (now £250 million) project. August 2013: The plan is then delayed by the Welsh Government who decide to take a closer look at the race circuit and its claims of creating 6,000 jobs. The Welsh Government then indicate that Blaenau Gwent Council will make all future decisions about the project. Construction is now set to start around November 2013 with a completion date of mid 2015.

The vision is magnificent, but 6 years after it was announced it is still just a field on a barren hillside.


September 2013: Thousands of people register their support for the project while objections continue to increase from the environmental lobby. January 2014: The Heads of the Valley Development Company ask the UK and Welsh governments for a £50 million investment into the (now £280 million) project. March 2014: Suggestions are made to the UK government by Richard Phillips (formerly of Silverstone Circuits Ltd) that such an investment would amount to illegal state aid under European Law. April 2014: Carmelo Espeletza, CEO at Moto-GP rights holders Dorna, gives his support to the Circuit of Wales project. This is done at a time when Silverstone Circuit are wrangling over the price of hosting Moto-GP and refusing to sign a new 5 year contract extension on terms dictated by Dorna. August 2014: To the surprise of most people within the industry, Dorna and the Circuit of Wales announce a 5 year contract to host the British round of Moto-GP at the (as yet unstarted – now £300 million) Welsh venue starting in 2015. September 2014: With the Welsh THE FINANCES: There are currently 7 Limited Companies directly or indirectly linked with the Circuit of Wales project. All of them have one director and shareholder in common – Michael Carrick - the front man for the whole project. He has an impressive CV that would make anyone take what he says seriously, so it is no surprise that big companies and governments have been receptive to his advances. The motorsport industry is very different to anything else though, so experience and a good track record elsewhere is no guarantee of success in our line of business. (just ask Syd) Take note of the order in which these companies were registered, it seems to me to tell a story of changing intent as the project

venue obviously unable to host the 2015 Moto-GP event (as it was and still is, just a field) a deal was struck with Donington Park to host the 2015 event on behalf of the Circuit of Wales. The Circuit of Wales were to prepay the bills for major works at Donington Park in return for use of the venue for the event itself. March 2015: A 10-day public inquiry is held to determine whether the 650 acres of common land needed to build the circuit should be deregistered. (Hello?) March 2015: With commitments to fund the required works at Donington Park not forthcoming, Donington Park Racing Ltd declare the Circuit of Wales to be in default and cancel the arrangement to host the 2015 Moto-GP event at their venue. April 2015: An agreement is reached with Silverstone Circuit to host the 2015 Moto-GP on behalf of the Circuit of Wales. As Silverstone was already MotoGP compliant, the deal was a straightforward arrangement whereby Silverstone took their fee directly from the ticket revenue and did not need to rely on advance payments from the Circuit

of Wales. July 2015: Circuit of Wales announce that Aviva Investors have committed £350 million of funding to the project. It later transpired that this investment was only to be provided if the Welsh Government agreed to underwrite the whole amount so that there was zero risk to anyone other than the taxpayer. September 2015: Silverstone Circuit and Circuit of Wales announce that the 2016 and possibly 2017 Moto-GP events will also be held at the Northamptonshire venue as the construction of the circuit at Ebbw Vale has fallen “behind schedule”. November 2015: The Welsh Government agrees to deregister the common land, which clears the final obstacle to construction of the (now £357 million) circuit. April 2016: Welsh economy minister Edwina Hart announces the government cannot underwrite the whole 100 percent demanded by Aviva Investors. Aviva would not at that time guarantee even 20 percent without underwriting. May 2016: Circuit of Wales is expected to announce whether they have reached a deal with new investors.

Few true fans would dispute that Moto-GP belongs at Donington.


Anglesey - You could buy 80 of these for £357 million! developed. It also seems strange that although they are all listed as “Active” their turnover is remarkably similar and is quoted as zero at the moment......(end of 2015) Why was the funding company not registered before the development company? Why was the company it was designed to fund not even in existence when the funding project was launched? These significant details trouble a very simple man like myself. A further 4 Limited Companies are part of the wider group – all also fronted by the same man. The Net Worth of all of the companies associated with the Ebbw Vale project is quoted at -£2.2 million (yes, that is a minus). In short, the whole set up seems to be worth less than a pair of my old underpants. I have so far been unable to find any buyers on the London Stock Exchange for my pants...... The only real money in the kitty thus far has been the £9 million that has come from the Welsh Government and that has been spent already. What there is to show for that money appears to be a pile of paper plans and a contract to host an event that has historically been notoriously difficult to make anything other than a financial loss from – even for the established venues. So where did the current £357

million figure come from? There is no real answer to that one, but the Circuit of Wales website does have an impressive list of documents that would lead you to think that the whole thing has been very carefully thought through. Sadly, a lot of the claims contained within those documents are far fetched and factually incorrect. One claim is that the Welsh Motorsports Federations are directly affiliated to the FIA and FIM, which is of course completely inaccurate and is not something that could be done in any realistic timescale. Another is that Silverstone is the sole hub of the motorsport engineering economy and that it is unable to fulfill its dominant market position. You only have to go back to the Competition Commisions 1998 Enquiry into Octagons alleged dominant position in the UK motorsport business to see documentary evidence that none of that is even remotely close to the truth. Have a look at the documents if you have 5 or 6 hours to spare and you will see numerous other assertions that have little or no basis in fact. I recommend it as a way to lose a day if you’re at a loose end. The last UK circuit to be built completely from scratch was Rockingham which cost just under £50 million including knocking down and cleaning up the old steelworks

site. Whilst Rockingham might not be everyones cup of tea, it is a very impressive facilty and is still the only motorsport venue in the UK to boast over 40,000 permanent grandstand seats. The last change of ownership I know of involved the exchange of less than £6 million in readies. Closer to home (this weekend anyway) Snetterton was completely transformed with an investment by MSV of just £3.5 million only 5 years ago and there was also an option of adding a technology park, retail units and a hotel for an added £16.5 million at the time. Sound familiar? I know that both of those projects were smaller than the proposed set up at Ebbw Vale, but not on the scale that would seem to require an additional £285 million. If you want to see what can be done in Wales for very little money, just look at Anglesey circuit. The picture above shows the scale of the work carried out and it doesn’t take an enormous leap of intellect to transpose that view onto the site at Ebbw Vale - which is not quite 3 times as large. We all know how good Anglesey looks today and it is acknowledged as one of the best circuits in the country, its only Achilles heel is its remote location. You could build 80 of those circuits shown in the picture– yes Eight Zero (80) – for £357 million. Where are the economies of scale that are supposed to come with bigger projects? Strangely enough if you look at Aventa Capitals website you will see that they currently have 3 projects on the go. Circuit of Wales - £350 million. Downham Market Regeneration Project - £350 million. Wyre Barrage Tidal Project - £350 million. These boys seem to like £350 million, or perhaps their abacus needs some 3 in 1 oil? Or maybe they are just so used to working in huge numbers they have lost touch with what can be done in the real world. They also have a tab on their website labelled “UK Regeneration Fund”


Snetterton - Transformed for just 3.5 million! which is apparently a £350 million project too, but if you look up the actual UK Regeneration Fund, you will find that it is a government funded Social Housing Programme, nothing to do with business development. Never mind that though, Aventa describe their UK Regeneration Fund like this:“The UK Regeneration Fund will seed our UK Enterprise Fund, which invests in UK SMEs with high growth potential in the technology, performance engineering and manufacturing sectors and leverages our operational expertise to help them reach the next level.” Can ANYONE tell me what that actually means in English? I’m sure it’s very useful when talking to government departments who are looking for a soundbite to satisfy their electorate, or investment managers looking to create an investment bundle, but it doesn’t tell me anything and I’m not exactly dumb. THE DESIRE OR NEED FOR A NEW WORLD CLASS VENUE: If you’ve read this far, you will probably think that I’m quite negative about the need or desire for such a project. That isn’t actually true, but I just don’t think that taxpayers money should be wasted, misplaced, poorly spent or trousered by clever or misguided men who only really deal in other peoples money. The government gives no help to our established motorsport

industry and was even prepared to stand idly by and let the British F1 Grand Prix be lost to a far eastern venue rather than give any financial assistance to Silverstone. There are currently 17 full size permanent ACU/MSA motorsport circuits in Great Britain at the moment and there is only just enough business to go around. Those venues all contribute to the estimated £8 billion that the motorsport industry brings into the UK economy and they all pay fairly substantial tax bills too. Imagine how unfair it would seem to them if the government took their taxes and gave them to a rival circuit that was competing for the same customers? You might think that there is plenty of business to go around, but that is not actually the case. A few years ago it was unheard of for any mainstream circuit to have to resort to running track days at weekends during the racing season. Now it seems almost

commonplace, even for some of the most established venues, and that tells us that there are not enough race meetings to go around even without the added complication of introducing another venue. IF enough private equity funding can be found to make this happen I’m all for it, because that means that it is financially viable and that in turn means there is more business around than I think. Private investors don’t take that many big chances and if they do indeed come forward with the cash it means all my fears for the sustainability of this project are misplaced. I don’t think that is likely to happen without a complete rethink over the scale and staging of any development though. I would love to see Great Britain having the very best motorsport park on the planet, but it would need to be something that drew more international business into this country in order to support itself, not something that had to take business from the already established venues. WHY DO I CARE? Because if that happened, racing would almost instantly become more expensive for everyone involved. The pool of customers out there would be spread more thinly due to there being a new venue that simply had to gobble up a fair percentage of existing business. That would leave everyone else simply having to charge more in order to stay solvent. I know that scenario very well from being at Lydden Hill and having to exist in the shadow of our giant neighbour, Brands Hatch. That isn’t my idea of progress. So be careful what you wish for.

& HMT RACING STOCKTWINS

SUPERTWINS THE ORIGINAL GP2 FOR THE MASSES!

WHAT’S SUPER ABOUT SUPERTWINS? Thundersport GB started out with what is now our Supertwin class back in 2009 (it was called GP2 back then) and it has since appeared in Irish Road Races, the North-West 200 and more recently the TT Races. These light and manouverable 650cc twin cylinder 4-strokes can be built for around half the cost of a 600cc Superstock machine and open up a route for the home tuner to get re-involved in the modern racing scene. The British Superbike package is missing out on this middleweight category at the moment and I can’t understand why. It would fill in that elusive rung on every budding young racers ladder to success. STOCKTWINS ARE SUPERTWINS ON A BUDGET Whereas the Supertwin category has no tuning restrictions, we also compliment that with our more cost concious Stocktwins Championship. The Stocktwins has grown out of the original Minitwin idea. Cost control was always designed to be a core principal of Minitwins and the rules were so tight that you can effectively say that these were as close as you could get to standard road bikes with a go faster exhaust and race suspension. However, having to use a lot of original parts and not being able to junk non-essential crash damaged parts precluded competitors from taking advantage of a lot of extremely cheap pattern parts readily available from the far East and that was the main reason for us adopting Stocktwins regulations. The only difference being that any nonperformance enhancing part may No Rider Hometown Team Machine cc CL be used regardless of whether it 8 Andy Driver Bromley Sundridge Windows MuZ 690 T is from the original manufacturer 14 Robyn Mapp Maidstone Mapp Racing Suzuki 650 S or not.

SPARKLIGHT RACING GOLDEN ERA SUPERSPORT & STEELSPORT

13

GOLDEN ERA MANIC - SUPERSPORTS OF THE 90s WHEN TRACTION CONTROL WAS ALL IN THE WRIST ACTION! As with the corresponding Superbike class, some of the most memorable race action came from a time before the electronics geeks interferred with the direct relationship between the twist grip and the throttle slides. The term “Mad Axe-Murderers” was actually coined by James Whitham when he did a couple of Wild Card rides in the World Supersport Championship and watching it from trackside you simply couldn’t argue the accuracy of that label. If Ghengis Khan rode a motorcycle it would have been an R6 or ZX6RR from this era (he might have struggled getting his helmet through Technical Control, but who’s going to argue with him?). Golden Era Supersport is our version of this classic era of motorcycle racing, before traction control took over from pure fearless determination. These classes are not Pre-Injection or Pre-2000, they are tailored to the bikes that actually raced in that iconic era. The technical regulations allow all and any modifications that were used in period and ban anything that wasn’t around or allowed at the time. Tyres are any make, any pattern, any type - as long as they have a road legal designation. Full wets are permitted only when a Wet Race has been declared. GOLDEN ERA STEELSPORT Since we started running the Golden Era Supersport class, many riders asked us about creating a parrallel series for the Steel-Framed bikes of a similar period. Initially we did not want to do so, because we saw that idea as the brainchild of the Derby Phoenix Motorcycle Club. We are not the kind of organisation that indulges in appropriating other peoples ideas on principle. However, the Derby Phoenix Club have had a difficult time of things over the past few seasons and they approached us to give a home to their loyal riders in 2015 as they no longer had the resources to organise their own events. The upshot of that were talks between us as to how we could assist them in not only giving their riders a place to ride, but ultimately putting them in a position to re-launch their own series. I am pleased to report that they are now well on the way to recovery. No 1 2 3 7 11 14 16 17 18 22 24 25 26 28 32 35 36 37 42 43 45 53 56 57 64 65 68 76 95 96 179

THUNDERSPORT 500 & 500 SENIORS

THE BIGGEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!

The Thundersport 500 and Thundersport 500 Seniors championships are the absolute cheapest possible way to go road racing on this planet. A whole race package can be picked up for less than the price of a top of the range helmet. That said, the racing is hard and close - bordering on the frantic at times. The talent of a racer needn’t be judged by the value of the bike he/she happens to be sitting on, some of the most gifted riders in the country ride these humble parallel twins. The predominant choice of bike here is the Honda CB500, but once you’ve watched a couple of these races you’ll never look at one of these staid commuter bikes in quite the same way again. The 500 Seniors championship caters for riders of 40 years of age or older on 1st March of any given racing season. Some of these lads are fulfilling a long term ambition to race that they simply didn’t have the resources to satisfy when they were younger. When you see the level of skill displayed by some of them, you have to think that they could have made a pretty good living at it if circumstances had been different. We also include a Freshman Championship for newcomers to racing and these are identified by an “F” on the grid listing and by their bright orange novice bibs on track.

THUNDERSPORT GP1 THE BADDEST BULLETS ON THE BLOCK! CAREFUL WITH THAT AXE EUGENE!

These bad boys are the most sophisticated and powerful bits of kit in the paddock. When you start racing, everyone secretly wants one, but the first time you ride one in anger reminds you very forcefully that they can bite! It is a reminder of how fast technology has advanced in just a few years when you consider that all of the bikes on this grid have more advanced electronics than even the most sophisticated Grand Prix machines had before the 4-stroke Moto-GP era started. It’s even more amazing to consider that if a decent standard club rider were on one of these machines in any Grand Prix before around 1991, he would probably have won! That is a little factoid that both astounds and offends people like me that grew up with Wayne Rainey and Eddie Lawson as their racing heroes (because NOBODY could have smoked the tyres like they did - could they?)................ This race usually has 2 categories within one race - all riders contest the main Thundersport GP1 Elite category and that can be won outright by a Sportsman rider if he is good enough. There is also a “Freshman” category for riders who are yet to obtain their Full Clubman Licence. This weekend there are so many riders No Rider Hometown Team Machine cc CL here that the Freshman class can be 2 Josh Day Swindon Crank Racing Kawasaki 1000 E found sharing a grid with the Golden Era 4 Craig Neve Immingham Callmac Flexi Hydraulic Kawasaki 1000 E Superbikes on page 23. 5 Curtis Rothwell Bolton Rothwell Racing Suzuki 1000 E All categories of GP1 rider may use any tyre, slick or treaded and even 16.5 inch 9 Paul Charman Accrington Accrington Auto Bodies Yamaha 1000 S rims if desired.

A&R RACING PRE-NATIONAL & SELCO FRESHMAN 600

PRE-NATIONAL 600 PASSION PUT INTO ACTION!

INTO THE FIRE The world of motorcycle racing can be an intimidating place for newcomers. If you want to start on a 600cc machine, you’ll quickly discover that everyone else on the grid is a budding Axe-Murderer in the making. In order to ease the transition into this fiercely competitive category, we created the “Pre-National Sport 600” class for riders who have yet to gain a National Licence. It was originally made up of a mix of pure novices and riders who are generally in their second season of racing. It tends to work slightly better than a pure “Novice” or “Rookie” grid because the new riders have some slightly more experienced riders around them that they can learn from - rather than the fastest newcomer being left to his own devices. This is hugely beneficial when it comes to things like lapping slower riders, or dealing with temporary course changes such as lack of adhesion flags being utilised on parts of the track. Of course those things can be learnt by trial and error, but having someone who has done it before just ahead of you takes the guesswork out of it. New for 2016 is a “Freshman” category within this race, which is for riders on a Novice licence with very little experience.The bikes themselves are pretty much the same specification machines as those on the Sportsman Elite grid, but at this learning stage of the process any small differences are immaterial. As the season progresses some of these riders will become very polished and take part in the Sportsman Elite races as well in order to measure their progress.

GOLDEN ERA NO GIMMICKS - SUPERBIKES OF THE 90s WHEN TRACTION CONTROL WAS ALL IN THE WRIST ACTION Some of the most memorable race action came from a time before the electronics geeks interferred with the direct relationship between the twist grip and the throttle slides. Seeing Yasutomo Nagai, Scott Russell, Giancarlo Fallappa, Aaron Slight and Anthony Gobert not only backing it in on high speed sections, but also squirming out of corners whilst the chassis tied itself in knots may not have been as fast as modern Moto-GP bikes - but it looked a whole lot faster and infinitely more exciting. Golden Era Superbikes is our version of this classic era of motorcycle racing, before 1000cc across the frame 4 cylinder bikes displaced the “real” Superbikes of the 750cc era. Just looking at these homologation specials on their paddock stands invokes memories of that era and when they fire up, the chatter of the flatslides just makes me grin - I can’t help it. These classes are not Pre-Injection or Pre-2000, they are tailored to the bikes that actually raced in that iconic era. The technical regulations allow all and any modifications that were used in period and ban anything that wasn’t around or allowed at the time. Tyres on the Superbikes are any make, any pattern, any type including slicks. Rims are also free and even carbon wheels can be used.

ELITE BLEND Modern Superstock 600 specification bikes are now so good that what was almost unthinkable 10 years ago is now true. In the right hands, a Superstock bike could set a lap time good enough for a front row start in British Supersport. Bearing in mind the £25,000 price gap between the two bikes, that is an amazing testament to how closely the manufacturers are able to replicate what their race departments are learning from racing and putting it into their production lines. With lap times so close, it seems mildly pointless creating two different races and therefore splitting up the pool of talent, so we combine the two different machine specifications into one (very exciting) race. We now run two classes in this race, but they are no longer split on machine specification, they are divided based on rider experience and licence grade. This reflects the lesser experience of some riders who contest the Sportsman class, rather than the Elite. This is our first season using this format, which was introduced because we felt that some riders moving up from the PreNational classes would like to be able to contest a championship against riders with a similar level of experience.

SOMETIMES.... ...LESS IS MORE!

THE APRILIA RRV450 - A MACHINE THAT SPANS THE AGES!

The APRILIA RRV450GP machine is without doubt one of the most desirable racing motorcycles in the world. It combines the very best Italian styling with British innovation in one beautiful package. Given the choice between a bland commuter machine that merely has body styling to ape its more exotic stablemates and something that is designed from the ground up to race, there really is no contest. NEW for 2016, IN Competition have created a race kit that turns the Full Power RRV450GP into a 32bhp restricted variant that is suitable for 13 year olds to learn the craft of road racing on. The Aprilia RRV450R is a 50% power version of this already proven machine, designed to compete in the World renowned Aprilia Superteen Challenge - the Worlds longest running one make series. Once the rider is ready to move on to a full power version, there is no need to sell up and start again, as IN Competition include the “Power Up” service in the original price of the machine. A few hours in the IN Competition workshop and the RRV450R becomes a full power RRV450GP ready for the next step on the racing career ladder. APRILIA RRV450GP - (Full Power)

27

THE CHAMPIONS FACTORY INNOVATION IN ACTION DON’T BRING A KNIFE TO A GUNFIGHT!

Not unless it’s as sharp as a razor - and these RRV450s are exactly that. Ask any of the Supertwins frontrunners and they’ll tell you that if you leave a gap even as small as a front tyre going into any corner, you’ll find a whole Aprilia RRV shoved into it well before the apex of the turn! When Aprilia created the SXV450 with its advanced composite frame and super-stiff swingarm, they couldn’t possibly have known that they were inadvertantly producing the basis for one of the very best middleweight sportsbikes in the world. It is often the case that when a bike of this kind is created with the sole purpose of winning races, it ends up being a little uncomfortable on the eye (that’s polite language for “pig-ugly”). Nothing could be further from the truth with Ian Newtons creation, the bikes are truly stunning to look at and they perform even better than they look. The bike was created to give our burgeoning talent pool of Superteens a place to learn how to ride a 4-stroke motorcycle that also demands high corner speed and accurate throttle control. The lessons they learn are then directly transferrable into the 600cc and 1000cc categories. The proof of how well this works is evident in the progression of many ex-RRV riders into the higher levels of the sport. In the past three seasons that “Where the hell did he learn to ride like that?” phrase has been used to describe Sam Wilford, James Folkard, Jake Dixon, Brad Jones and Ross Twyman who all stood on the podiums in their first ever appearances at BSB after graduating from the “Aprilia Acadamy of Excellence”. Take your place at your favourite spot to watch these encounters and you’ll be amazed and entertained in equal measure. You can’t buy one for the road, you can’t buy one for track days, you can only buy one to race here - you can have one in any colour you like - as long as it’s black! The Superteens will be sitting right behind these boys on the grid and they’ll be looking to see how the more experienced riders handle themselves. Soon enough though this crop of 12-15 year olds will be aboard the more powerful bikes themselves and they won’t be taking any prisoners.

The GB Racing British Military Inter Services Championship enters its 5th season with Thundersport GB in 2016. In the current political climate, it is very difficult for any of our military personnel to plan out a full seasons racing. International conflicts flare up remarkably quickly in the modern world and these guys can find themselves posted to danger zones anywhere in the world with as little as 48 hours notice. Therefore we have attempted to design a very flexible championship that is both spread across a whole season, yet at the same time has events that can be opted out of without penalty or danger of rendering a normal championship challenge practically unviable. You don’t have to agree with decisions made by our armed services political masters in order to appreciate the risks that the personnel face in order to protect and preserve our way of life. These are just ordinary, real people who put themselves in harms way on a fairly regular basis on our behalf. This year, instead of riders scoring points in their own individual classes, they all come together on one grid for a spectacular shoot out race on five separate occasions during the course of the season. Points scoring for this race is based on 1 point for last place and an additional point for every place in front of that. There are bonus points for the podium places – 3 points for 1st, 2 points for 2nd and 1 point for 3rd – as well as an extra point for the fastest lap of the race. The teams are:Royal Navy Royal Marines Motorsport our current champions. British Army Race Team who were victorious in 2013 and 2014. Royal Air Force MSA who were champions back in 2012. Rounds:Brands Hatch (March) Snetterton (May) Rockingham (July) Donington Park (September) Cadwell Park (October)

Who Keeps the Event on Schedule Behind The Scenes?

Of course the whole team has to work together to keep an event running smoothly, but the people at the sharp end come rain or shine are the trackside Marshals, Recovery Crews and Technical staff. When incidents happen, their quick actions are essential in ensuring that things don’t escalate. They are armed with the tools to do the job of course:- Radios to communicate with Race Control, Flags and Boards to communicate with the riders, Shovels, Brooms, Detegents and Dust to deal with spillages and most importantly EXPERIENCE, TRAINING and TEAM SKILLS so that their actions are both reflex and coordinated to minimise any risks or delays. Many hands make light(er) work... The skills required to do this do not come naturally to anyone and that and less Red Flags! is why constant training is carried out as the season goes on. A lot of it might not look like training, it looks like incident handling, but that is the very best kind of training because we learn far more from real life incidents than we can ever learn from made up scenarios. So when you are finished with your days racing and you see the team coming in from their posts, a simple Thank You goes a long way towards reminding them that you appreciate their efforts. Thanks from the rest of the Team too

The Technical Control boys realised the bike was a bit untidy, but they really couldn’t see a problem with it!

A day on the beach in Paphos... ...or a day on the bank at the Park? No contest!

The bin men at Craner Curves were a bit confused when the dust cart left without them!

Matty tried to teach the boys at the Esses how to Morris Dance during the lunch break.
