Chloe Jones Racing

Chloe Jones won the British Mini Bike Road Racing Championship on overall points with just one round to go when she competed in Round Nine of the Mini GP 140 Championship, which took place on 30th September – 1st October 2017 at Llandow Circuit in South Wales. This is an absolutely fantastic result after missing one round due to a family holiday.
Find out more in the following race report:

Chloe had a great weekend in Llandow despite the weather being unfavourable and is overjoyed about winning the MiniGP 140 Championship.

This is is a superb result for the 13 year old talented superbike racer that was picked to do trials for the British Talent Cup earlier this year.

The Round 10 is at Whilton Mill in Northamptonshire on 28th – 29th October 2017 where Chloe will be racing equipped with EBC motorcycle racing brakes, to provide full control on the track.

Chloe quoted:

Well all I’ve got to say is that I’m so happy I have now won the Championship with a round to go, full race report to go up tomorrow as we’re on are way home now.

Photo: Michael Tustin in action!

So that’s officially the end of our debut season in the Ducati TriOptons Cup. It’s been a great experience and I learned so much. A lot harder than I could’ve ever imagined and being on the grid with so many fast riders has improved my riding no end. Met some top people along the way too.

Some massive highs, but equally some lows too, especially at the midpoint of the season, where we lost our way a little bit.

However, I never thought we’d hit the podium in our first season and that’s credit to the hard work we all put in. To finish in 13th overall is something I am extremely proud of, especially with some of the riders in this class. There really aren’t any mugs on this grid!

The plan is to now get the bike’s gearbox repaired and give next season another go in the Ducati Cup once again. Already looking forward to next year!

Greg Melka

Here is the end of season race report from long term EBC Brakes assisted racer Greg Melka who has been competing in the Mid Atlantic and South East Region of the CCS Roadracing Championship 2017.
Greg’s race report follows:

The 2017 Mid Atlantic and South East Region CCS Roadracing Championship, that started way back in March, was finalised at Virginia International Raceway on 23rd – 24th September 2017. I’m happy to report a successful defense of BOTH region #1 plates. Somehow, that was completed with no crashes, a performance index of over 900 in both regions (1000 means ya won every race), only 1 DNF (miscalculation on fuel) and even sat out a couple of rain races. As well as the coveted overall championships, I clinched the class championships in all but one class in both regions (11 class championships out of 12 competed in).
So yea. It was a pretty sweet season.

I had a blast doing the travelling, racing with some incredible riders and seeing on a regular basis some people that are equally enthused about motorcycle racing. The National Championship Races are just around the corner at Daytona and I may make a drive to Barber after that for a little WERA action (will see, a national enduro is that same weekend).

As we know, motorcycle racing is a very expensive sport, and without the help of some awesome people and amazing companies, it would be much more difficult to put this kind of performance together.  Thank you to EBC Brakes – the new rotors are actually awesome!

Leon Jeacock – GEO E Davies Racing

Leon Jeacock competed in the BeNeCup Championship for Superbike and Supersport which took place at the TT Circuit Assen on 29th September – 1st October 2017. Leon has his Suzuki superbike equipped with GPFAX brake pads.
Leon’s Race report follows:
Photo: Leon Jeacock

Leon and the Smiles Powder Racing Team made the annual overseas trip to the legendary TT Circuit at Assen. As the Pirelli National SuperStock1000 Championship was not part of the support package to the MCE BSB Championship here, the team decided to run in the BeNeCup Championship for Superbike & Supersport. This would be a good test for the team against unknown competitors and machines.

Two qualifying sessions were held – one in torrential rain and one in dry sunny conditions. In Qualifying One Leon certainly found the sweet spot on the Suzuki in the extremely wet and treacherous session and finished in third position. Typically, with Assen’s unpredictably, the second session was run on a dry track with sunshine breaking through. This time Leon put the Suzuki second fastest and in the combined overall times he took second on the grid for the race.

Taking the lead on the first lap, Leon was involved in a great scrap with two other riders. He was passed on the second lap and then dropped to third after four laps. Fighting hard throughout the 14 laps though Leon came home in third place a superb finish for the team after all their hard work in the season so far. A podium place richly deserved. Speaking after the race he said:

I want to thank Smiles Powder for sponsoring this race for me. I am so glad we have given them a podium finish, the Suzuki was working well round here and this result is a payback to the team who have worked hard all this season to sort the Suzuki.

Anvil Hire TAG Racing

Here is the latest news from Anvil Hire TAG Racing who will be wrapping up their race season at Brands Hatch for Round 12 of the MCE British Superbike Championship on 13th October 2017.
Here is their last race report from Round 11 which was held at Assen on 29th September – 1st October 2017:

Dutch delight for Brookes and Anvil Hire Yamaha at Assen

Josh Brookes, Shaun Winfield and the Anvil Hire Yamaha squad battled through tough and tricky conditions at the ‘Cathedral of Speed’ at Assen Circuit with Brookes taking to the podium in Race Two, after finishing fifth in Sunday’s first race with Shaun Winfield bravely picking up a 22nd place finish but retiring out of race two with a technical fault following a heavy crash on Friday morning.

After three strong free practice sessions for Josh, he went into Saturday’s qualifying with high expectations of achieving a good grid slot for Sunday’s opening race. After a fast crash on Friday morning Shaun recovered well overnight after being advised to sit out of FP2 and was cleared fit to ride for the remainder of the weekend.

Following heavy rain prior to qualifying Josh qualified for Sunday’s first race in 11th place after a wheel speed sensor caused issues on his fast laps in Q2.

The damper conditions helped Winfield post a 2:11.5, although his injuries were still causing problems for the 24-year-old’s mobility on the bike, bravely qualifying in 27th place.

Under the beating sun on Sunday afternoon both Josh and Shaun made good starts from the line in Race One, with Brookes finishing the first lap in 9th place and Shaun in 25th.  As the race progressed Josh started to make his way through the pack and by mid race had worked his way into 6th and started to chase down the leading group.

With two laps to go the Bringelly man sat in 5th, but he just couldn’t work his way past the riders ahead on the final lap, though still we picked up all important Championship points.

Winfield pushed hard from the off. Still battered and bruised from Friday’s accident he pushed hard, battling with Aaron Zanotti, posting a 1:42.6 as he looked to stay with the group ahead. Fatigue then played a part and he brought the bike home safely in 22nd place.

Due to the lap times achieved in the first outing Josh would start Race Two from 4th and at the head of the 2nd row with Shaun starting 25th.

From the lights in Race Two Brookes made a great start running with the leading group at the foot of the five-man pack. As the race progressed, lap by lap, Josh started to pull closer to the leader and with three laps remaining Josh started to make his move, after Haslam and Byrne made mistakes running wide at turn one.

Haslam soon regrouped, but on the final lap Brookes made a brave pass on the Kawasaki rider and held off the Championship leader to the line, taking the flag in second, picking up his 5th podium of the year.

Shaun made an equally good start to the race, chasing down Aaron Zanotti after the opening few laps. However, on lap ten he pulled into the garage with a technical issue and retired from the race.

After the race, a pleased Josh Brookes said:

It was hard fought, certainly earlier in the race I felt I was giving everything I and the bike had and it didn’t seem to be enough to move forward.

I was like a paying spectator, I had to watch the guys ahead in a battle but fortunately towards the end of the race the tyre was still working good, and the character of me and the bike seems to work stronger at the end than it does at the beginning, so I started to become more of a player at the end of the race.

Everybody’s desire to win was causing extreme moves and passes that slowed the race up, and that meant it put me in the perfect position to make passes. It wasn’t a win today but it almost feels like it, every point for me is extremely valuable. I would have liked to have been more consistent in the showdown, but we’re not down and out, anything can happen yet so maybe these points are the most vital of the Championship yet.

A frustrated Shaun Winfield added:

This weekend has been a write off really, after my crash on Friday it threw everything out of the window, and no matter what I did I couldn’t get comfortable on the bike. I’m still battered, bruised, and very sore after completing the first race.

Race Two I actually felt better, but mid race the bike developed a technical issue and I lost all drive with the machine, the boys are looking into it and we’ll soon find the issue.

I’ve got to thank my side of the garage for everything this weekend, Gary and Dan basically rebuilt the whole bike after my crash at Oulton and they did it again Friday morning after my crash, Nigel has worked incredibly hard as well and I can’t thank them and the medical staff enough.

We’ve now got two weeks before the final round, I’ll rest, recover and feel fitter for Brands where I’m already aiming to end on a high.

Team Owner Rob Winfield finished by saying:

This weekend has to be viewed as a positive, I wish we’d have been closer to Leon leaving here but we’re still second, which is a big thing going into the last round, there are still lots of points to play for, we’ve got a good chance and anything can happen. We’ve got to push on now when we get back to the workshop and get the job done at Brands.

Shaun had a big crash on Friday, so to even ride the bike after that was brilliant, I’m really proud of him, he gave it his all. He’s battered, bruised and sore but he’s going to rest up now and come back stronger at Brands for the final round and get back into the points.

Following this weekend, Josh stays second in the MCE British Superbike Championship standings on 580 points, 32 points behind Leon Haslam, with three races and 75 points left to play for at the final round.

The team now has a week break to plan and prepare for the final round of the 2017 MCE British Superbike Championship at the triple header which takes place at Brands Hatch.

UWTSD Orthrus Racing

The student led UWTSD Orthrus Racing Team based in South Wales headed to Oulton Park for the first time to attend the penultimate round of the Thundersport GB Championship, which took place on 22nd – 23rd September 2017. The team are using a mixture GPFAX, EPFA and Organic brake pads on their two Suzuki SV650s and a 2009 Yamaha YZF-R6 bike.
Here is their race report:

This weekend the team headed to Oulton Park for the first time to attend the penultimate round of the Thundersport GB Championship. This was only a two-day event with three practice sessions and qualifying on Friday, with two championship races on the Saturday.

With only three practice sessions to learn the track, Matt and Sam had to make the most of their time out on circuit and learn very quickly. They both got their heads down in each session to learn as much as they could. After only just getting to grips with the circuit in the dry, it rained over the lunch break so wet tyres were put on ready for qualifying.

Matt was out first on the SV650 on a very wet track but unfortunately a seal inside the forks failed meaning he lost all rebound damping and crashed out in the chicane without setting a lap time.

For Sam’s session on the R6 there was a dry line now forming for most of the lap so after a few laps he pulled in to stiffen the bike up a bit from the wet setting and went back out to set a good lap, qualifying him in 11th out of 39 bikes.

Overnight the team worked hard to repair Matt’s bike and had the forks working but far from their best. Starting from the back of the grid in his race, Matt worked through the issues with the forks and now a gearbox problem caused from the crash to make up some places, finishing 7th in class.

Aiming for a top ten finish, Sam got a great start in his first race and was holding onto 9th position for most of the race but couldn’t quite fend off the two bikes behind him and finished in 11th place.

Once again starting from the back of the grid, Matt did well to get past over ten bikes despite the gearbox issues worsening, meaning it wouldn’t go into 6th gear and was hitting false neutrals in 2nd and 3rd gear. He set his fastest lap of the weekend and finished in 9th in class. A bit of a disappointing weekend for Matt as he clearly had the pace for better results if it wasn’t for the bike issues through the weekend.

With a new rear tyre on and determined for a top ten finish, Sam set off for his second race and quickly slotted into 7th position and was just about holding onto the leading pack in front. With Oulton Park being such a physical track he was trying not to tire himself out, and with three laps to go he was very quickly closing in on the group in front. On the final lap he was close to two riders in front of him when they both out-broke themselves into the chicane allowing him to get past and finish in 5th overall and a 3rd in class! An incredible result for Sam and the team to finish the weekend.

Davy Morgan #71 Road Racing

Davy Morgan and his DM71 Road Racing Team competed in the last Irish Road Race of the season at the newly named ‘East Coast Racing Festival’ held on the Killalane Circuit just north of Dublin on 9th – 10th September 2017.  Dave has GPFAX brake pads installed on his Magic Bullet R6 Yamaha and Angry Bee ZX10 Kawasaki.
Here are his latest race reports:
Another Top Finish for Morgan at East Coast

The last Irish Road Race of the season was at the newly named ‘East Coast Racing Festival’ held on the Killalane Circuit just north of Dublin. A circuit Davy enjoys as it is one of the quickest National Road Races, with a number of very fast flowing sections. There was only one bike for the weekend as the 250cc Honda was still being repaired after its breakdown at the Classic TT, but the Angry Bee ZX10 Kawasaki was ready for action after the gearbox problems at the Ulster Grand Prix.

The weather was changeable on Saturday for practice and although the organisers had hoped to have timed qualifying, it didn’t happen as heavy rain showers at the wrong time made the circuit too dangerous, so effectively the practice was controlled and the grids made up by the organisers.

Race Day and the circuit was mostly dry after overnight rain for the start of racing, although the wind had picked up and would definitely catch the riders in places. There was to be two races for Davy on the Angry Bee ZX10, the Open Race and the Grand Final. Race 4 was the Open Race slot and road conditions were as good as they had been all weekend although the wind was probably stronger than earlier in the morning. Davy started from 11th on the grid (back of 3rd row) and made a decent start and was up to 8th at the end of the opening lap. He continued to get faster throughout the race and by the end of the seven laps he took the chequered flag to finish in a hard earned 5th place.

That was to be the final action for DM71 Road Racing as the rain came and the wind blew and despite the organisers delaying racing for an hour, there was too much rain and debris on the circuit to continue racing so the meeting was correctly abandoned.

Afterwards Davy commented:

I really enjoy this circuit, but only in the dry. In the wet the surface is poor in places and is very slippery which is not good, especially with it being such a fast circuit. The weather played havoc with the weekend and the wee club did well to get so much run before it became unsafe. I really enjoyed the Open Race and I had a good run on the Angry Bee ZX10, despite the wind catching us badly in a couple of places. I hope the club got the support they needed to make sure this circuit is on the calendar in 2018. It’s hard to believe the Irish Season is now over and in a couple of weeks we will be at the Gold Cup (Scarborough) to finish the season and maybe a trip to Macau if I get the invite and I can get a bike sorted.

I want to again thank all those who helped out both before and during the meeting, especially Tim & Sally who supply the Kawasaki and Jamie, Maurice and Trudy who work hard every weekend to help make it happen, although one bike made it a bit more relaxing this time around.

Just updating you once again with the last leg of the season nearly finished. I was privileged to be offered a ride on one of Ryan Farquhar’s SuperTwin bikes which was a huge help to me, making us a lot more competitive.

With one round of the championship still remaining we have WON the IRISH SUPER-TWIN Championship.
After a successful last two rounds winning four races I was able to secure the Championship which I am very happy about, especially in my first season of racing.

Already looking forward to 2018 and the new challenges I face. Hopefully we can have more success using the best EBC Brake parts!

Thanks Simon
