Team Sorrymate win Round 3 National 600cc with best EBC racing brakes


EBC sponsored Team Sorrymate have had excellent results recently when they raced in round 3 of the National 600cc Championships. With EBC GPFAX brake pads fitted on their bikes, the best racing brakes currently available on the market, the team gained two 2nd place podium finishes and then won the ‘Super Six’ race during round 5.


Here is Warren Verwey’s race report:

Round 3 Team Sorrymate take 2nd!
After the last round at Cadwell and a string of bad luck we finally made it back onto the podium seeing the team finish in second place at Round 3, Pembrey behind the current series leaders Team Edge, Gary Johnson (TT winner) and Nick Edgeley. This was an important podium for us putting us back up there and in 3rd position in the championship points.

Round 4 – Team Sorrymate take 2nd!
Our next round at a wet and windy Anglesey saw us finishing with another podium in 2nd place once again behind Team edge closing up the gap and putting us in a stronger points position. Track conditions were tricky and after making a bad tyre choice on a rapidly drying track we managed to fight our way back to the sharp end. The conditions turned constantly during the race seeing us making constant tyre swap outs from slicks to wets and back again. The EBC brakes performed faultlessly throughout our race!

Round 5 – “The Super Six” – Team Sorrymate take the win!
Round 5, the first and only 6 hour event of the 2014 season was a key race and turning point in the season with the offering of double points to the winning team which would prove to be a game changer in the championship points. The conditions were very changeable seeing us having to make last minute tyre choices to ensure we were on full form. This round would allow us to bring a 3rd rider, Richard Charlton in to assist us in our pursuit of the championship. Our strategy of 3 riders and careful planning saw us take our first win of the season catapulting us to just 11 points behind the current leaders. Putting us back in the game.

1 hour in and Richard had taken a nasty fall in torrential rain but managed to get back to the pits in order to repair the bike and allow us to carry on the a convincing win of 2 laps ahead of our nearest rivals.

I will keep you posted on the progress of the next couple of rounds. Snetterton 300 and Knockhill.

Manx GP 2014
August will see me racing at the Manx GP again this year. I have now had all my entries through and am riding across 3 classes on 2 bikes.

I will be riding a competitive supersport Kawasaki ZX6R in the Junior and senior classes with a start number of 40 in a field of close to 100 riders.

I have also bought a championship winning Kawasaki ER6 from the well know Irish Road racer, Ryan Farquar who will be assisting me at the Manx in the Supertwin class this year. My start number in this class is 14 which is fantastic news!
