|2017 RACING UPDATE
Dylan is riding a 2007 Triumph Daytoma 675 in the Mike Hopkins 600cc Superbike Regional Championship.
Pre season testing went well despite limited track time. Dylan was immediatly quicker on the Triumph but we had some setup issues to sort out. Unfortunatly, the ECU gave up on us at the first race meeting of the year.
Thats been sorted and we are back on track. To boost Dylans confidence and ability on the Triumph he entered the Clubmans Class on 08 April 2017 and came home with 2nd in Class A for the day. It was a great weekend at the track and he shattered his personal best lap times.
To make the day just a bit better, Russel entered Dylans old Honda CBR F4 in the Brakfast Run Class. It was his first time racing a superbike after 20 odd years and he loved every second of it. Over the course of the weekend he bettered his lap times by over 6 seconds and went home with a smile on his face.
Next event is on 22 April 2017 at Killarney where Dylan will be riding in the 600cc Regional Class.
2016 Championship Roundup.
The season had its highs and lows. Not everything went to plan but we finished 5th overall in Class A. That's actully not a bad result when all things are considered.
1. Dylan was riding a bike that was 17 years old with way less power than the bikes ahead of him. No Quick Shifter, Fuel Injection, Traction Control or fancy suspension.
2. Dylan missed the last two events - 4 races - becasue of the massive crash he had in September - see videos below
2017 is going to be a new challenge. Dylan has a Triumph 675 to race and he will be competing in the Regional 600 Class.
First race is in Mid February and we are so looking forward to it.

Dylan's gear leaver linkage broke on the last lap and he was changing gears by hand. Harry Clifton knocked him from behind on the back straight and crashed. His bike rebounded into Dylan's path causing Dylan crash. Dylan was laying 4th overall at the time.
