MHB League ROUND FIVE Overview - 24th July 2008
Firstly apologies from the Co-ordinator - photos for the last 3 sessions will be up on the website shortly ... I promise !
School break, as usual, played havoc with attendance, with many riders being away on holiday.
Fire Tyres - hit a glitch this round with most of its members away on holiday, and Team Captain Nathan Bloodworth being involved in a road traffic accident. Moto KL wish you a speedy recovery Nathan. Unfortunately missing this round has seen the team slide from 2nd place to 6th place in the league.
Westcotec - Ricky Norman was a star, being totally unphased by being the only member of his team attending this Round, and leaving half way through a social event to attend the racing. We were assured today by Nan that he does smile .. but we are still waiting Ricky. Joking apart, Ricky is a very good consistent rider - and insider information tells us that his riding skills became apparent when he was only 3 years old. Damon Hillier joined Ricky halfway through the Round, his late arrival due to public transport problems. Between them they pulled in 24 points, thus maintaining their new high scoring.
Well done lads !
MAG Sport J's - Dan Cusdin was also a star today, being the sole representative for his team. David Borley was off watching his dad on a track day at Snetterton, Team Captain James Moss was helping out at the local airshow. The team currently has a couple of vacancies - so if you have mini moto riding experience - get in touch.
MAG Energy - turned out 4 team members today. Team Captain Kane Beatson, Ellie Whiting, and brothers Jack and Cameron Wilson moved their team up a place in the league from 5th to 4th. Thanks to Mr Wilson for allowing himself to be cooked slowly out on the track - no - we didn't bbq him ! He was marshalling and it was hot out there today. Thanks also to Ellie Whiting for trialing the wheelie wet one race,, and an inside tip - she did really well - watch out lads!
Dusty Devils - lost out to MHB Services on points on this Round, but have managed to hang on to their first placing in the league. Team Captain Jon Perris, Jamie Jackson, Matthew Trudgill, Calum Bacon, and James Blackburn between them brought in a healthy 27 points. Jon Perris also helped with trialing the wheelie wet race, and discovered the first glitch of this new race for us, and managed to give the Co-ordinator the best laugh ever. Thanks Jon, and hope you are okay after your spectacular spill today.
MHB Services - Carl Brooks and Daniel Horspole excelled themselves today. Bringing in 32 points between them - the highest score for this round. 32 points has only ever been achieved once before by Fire Tyres in Round 2. Superb riding lads! Team Captain Nathan King has luckily for him, obtained a summer job, unlucky for his team though. The remaining team members were away doing school break stuff.
Many thanks to: Norfolk Arena - our venue hosts.
Simon Mollett and Steve Perris for so swiftly attending to the constant stream of repairs for this Round, and to the Australian Speedway riders who helped out.
Colin - for being able to capture all the fantastic photos and the delightful Debbie Perris - Marshall 'extraodinaire' - who looked stunning in her MAG t shirt.
Dave Cusdin - for his much appreciated serenity.
This Round we welcomed Mrs Cusdin - another experienced motorcyclist - who multi tasked constantly - hope to see you next session!
Many thanks to the Rider's dads who didn't get to relax in the hot sunshine!
