2nd season racing

I'm starting my second season racing in the NG road racing series this weekend @ brands hatch. Competing in the open 600, sounds of thunder (singles twins and triples), open (anything goes) (@ single day events) and open newcomer classes.

Last year I jumped in the deep end with a pretty much a stock bike Inc gearing and suspension. Blew an engine up after a couple of rounds.

I finished miles from the back of the pack the first few races, however after a couple of rounds I managed to hold on to the back of the pack and start mixing it up.

Hoping to complete for the newcomers championship this year and mix it up around points finishes in the other classes.

Bike is in bits at the mo, will post pic up later in the week.

Will try and keep this thread updated throughout the year. Or you can follow the results here http://www.ngroadracing.org/results_data/2017/diary.htm

Good luck to it. I have a few mates doing various classes too

I'm keen to have a go and have my ACU but funds are being thrown at my sons racing which is more important to me

Hopefully you have a more reliable season this year and get your pace to mid pack and start mixing it up

Good luck, I never raced with NG, only EMRA, Bemsee and New Era

Is it brands indy this weekend? I'm in slough Saturday so might pop in to watch some crashes, if I do I will PM you.

Goods day testing, spent most of the day on suspension, couldn't get the power down with the rear tieing it's self in knots.
After ecu reflash gained lots of midrange power .
All in all good day and shaved almost a second off my best lap from last year.

Who did you get to map it? What times were you running round Indy? Improvement on that track is hard as it's so tight and gives the right side real grief

A friend runs one for purely track but would like to map his. Also a guy I raced with did his first race there Sunday (Cam Harris) and won it... Not bad for his first race on tarmac
