Valmoto MV 675 at the NW 200

Ok as mentioned in my other NW200 thread http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=53105 I took some photos of the 'Valmoto' MV 675 that Gary Johnson is riding at the races.

It was out on track last night (Thursday) for it's first supersport race and was going and sounding beautiful and was able to sit with Alistair Seeley who was on an absolute mission for the race win. (And you can see him along side Seeley in the last photo.)
However unfortunately in 6th gear on a straight and pulling strongly it mysteriously stopped??

After the race in the paddock I spoke to Jack Valentine (the team owner) about what the issue was and he informed me it was a 'tilt switch' malfunction. This cut's the engine if the bike falls over and is on road bikes.
Bummer!!.., Anyway we had a good chat and he's fired up for the next race Tomorrow (Saturday)...as am I!!.
(They're using 'Motec' electronics) as you can spot in the photos on the tech's laptop.

Here are a few photos of the bike with Jack Valentine in some of the shots...I'll try and get the rider.., Gary Johnson another time. Although He's on the podium in one of those shots in my NW200 thread.
Fantastic to witness MV Agusta racing on the 'roads' again....woooo-hoooo!!
Brian

Ps I'd like one of those paddock Jackets

So I was up at the NW 200 today again for the main days racing and it was abandoned due to unending rain (I've posted about this in my other NW 200 thread http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showth...=53105&page=2)...however the first race of the day was the 2'nd supersport race (the first supersport being on Thursday).

I wanted to see the 'Valmoto' F3 675 MV in action again.
I only managed to get these two shots (sorry about the 2'nd one)....but I was intending to get some better ones ......but the race was red flagged after two and a half laps...and the rest of the meeting abandoned!.

I did manage to once again talk to team manager Jack Valentine afterwards though and he has promised me that the MV will be at the TT and also the Ulster grand Prix where I look forward to getting seeing it in action (and close up) once again.
Brian.
