RAF Classic Racing Team Round 5 Donington

The Royal Air Force Classic Race Team have been racing this season in the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club Championship and have sent on their latest report:


Snetterton – CRMC Round 6
Round Six of the CRMC took place at Snetterton Circuit back in August where seven of the Royal Air Force Racing Team were all equipped with EBC motorcycle brakes and ready to race with a total of ten bikes. Andy Green and Sy Woodward rode their Yamaha 250s in a close fought battle and looked in good form from the off, resulting in Woodward managing a second place during the first race on the Saturday, with Green close behind in third place. In the second race of the day, the Team finished in third and fourth positions. During the third race Woodward managed another impressive third place with Green finishing fourth in the final race after Woodward pulled out.

 

Chris Bartlett achieved some respectable results throughout the meeting and gained a 6th and two 5th place finishes in the Classic Air-cooled class on his Maxton Yamaha 250.

 

Mick Rudd encountered some mechanical issues throughout the weekend and had to drop out, but Gavin Heggs had good results on his debut appearance when he came 7th in the third race on his newly built Yamaha RD250.

 

During the Piston Port 125 Class, the RAF Classic Racing Team raced their EBC motorcycle brake equipped MT125s with mixed results. Houston managed to overcome some of the mechanical problems that were plaguing him the day before to take 5th and 6th place. Woodward and Green had some close racing battles, but unfortunately Woodward only managed to finish three of the four races because of mechanical issues.
The final round of the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club Championship will be at Silverstone on the 8-9th of October.

Cormac Conroy – CRMC Snetterton 27th & 28th  August.

Cormac Conroy was also racing at Snetterton recently. Here is his race report:

Snetterton had a new place on the calendar this year earlier than the usual October race meeting. The weather was good throughout and the racing excellent as always.

Cormac was again back out on the ‘Brendan Ryan Triples’ and was entered in four Formula 750 races, three Classic 1300 Races and the National 1300 Race.

Once again Cormac got the perfect start to win the Classic 1300cc on board the 930cc Ryan BSA. Next was the first Formula 750 race and Cormac worked very hard to finish 3rd. He felt the bike was down on power although it sounded good and there was no evidence of a problem. Checks were made to the bike by the team but failed to find any fault.

Back out on the 930cc for the second Classic 1300 race and once again Cormac was out front and lead from start to finish.

Cormac followed that with a fantastic win in the UK National 1300cc race again on the 930cc BSA.

In the following Formula 750 races Cormac again struggled for speed on this fast circuit and fought for a hard earned 4th & two 5th place finishes, he was disappointed with the results but also knew that was the best he could do on the day. Overall it was another successful race weekend with the Ryan Triples.

Later in the week the engine of the Formula 750 bike was stripped in the workshop and found to have a broken valve guide, which will be repaired and be back to full power for Silverstone in early October.

Cormac teams up with Patrick Banfield, for the Classic Bol dOr next which will be held at the ‘Circuit Paul Ricard’ over the weekend 16th and 17th September. They will race the Kawasaki of the French entry “Team Classic Racer Nice”

Thanks to my sponsors for their continued generous support.

Here’s the latest race report from Leon Jeacock who has GPFAX Sintered Road Race Brake Pads fitted on his superbike:

 

Consistency pays off with another points finish – Round 10 Pirelli National Superstock1000 Championship

The penultimate round of the Pirelli National Superstock1000 Championship with Black Horse took place at Donington Park. This is almost home turf for Leon and one of his favourite circuits, with its fast flowing bends and tight hairpins giving close racing and plenty of overtaking opportunities.

Leon decided to sit out the free practice session on Friday morning as a rain shower had left the circuit wet. With more rain threatening, the decision was made to wait until the afternoon’s qualifying session to enter the fray. Qualifying one was held in dry conditions and he took a provisional fifteenth on the grid. Despite having a good base set up the Geo E Davies Racing team made a few tweaks overnight for the second qualifying session to be held on Saturday. The changes made to the machine certainly worked for Leon as he knocked nearly half a second from qualifying one and moved up to twelfth on the grid. He was confident of another points finish in the race to be held on Sunday.
Making an uncharacteristically poor start Leon slipped down to fourteenth position on lap one. His fightback started almost immediately and by lap seven of the ten lap race he had made it back into the top ten. With three laps left Leon managed to claw back another position and finished in ninth spot. Another solid points finish for him and the team leaving him in tenth place in the Championship amidst a tight battle, with four other riders sitting closely around his tally of forty-eight points.

Leon said “I am pleased with the result after the slow start and it was pleasing to ride in front of so many people who help me and the team to be here at what is our home round really. We now move onto Brands Hatch for the final round of 2016 and hopefully a good result to go into the winter with. Many thanks to all my sponsors once again”

Phill Morris Racing – Matthew Rees

Here’s Matt Rees race report of the Classic TT:

Classic TT started well, running top 10 in Superbike qualifying but then the bad luck hit when the exhaust spring snapped at the beginning of the race resulting in a DNF which was very disappointing for the team after such a successful week. To top it off 4 bikes were disqualified from the race for having illegal engines, meaning that we had a good chance of placing 3rd or 4th as we were battling with William Dunlop all week in qualifying who came out with a spot on the podium. Never mind that’s the racing game, more lessons learnt and TT track experience. We have Anglesey Grand and Scarborough Gold Cup coming up along with a reserve spot for Macau.  Once again I would like to thank you for your continued support with the racing.

EBC floating MC rotors or X & XC brake disc rotors as they are sometimes known, are ultra lightweight, best selling and best performance discs available for all modern racing sport bikes. The rotors benefit from the EBC Brakes unique and patented S-Drive button system that features square sided rivets captured in square drive pockets on the hub and rotor.
