“So just getting my eye in, and thinking ‘was it me being rusty’, I haven’t ridden for over a year, or was it the bike? It was good to go to Scarborough and get a good benchmark. We have got a lot of work to do, there’s nothing majorly wrong with the bike, it’s just getting everything to work together, getting everything to gel, which is why you get days like today. So did Scarborough and Tandragee, did two days [at Castle Combe] at the start of April, and before then we were in Spain for four days.”
Team Suzuki Ecstar reviews some of its moments from the 2517 MotoGP campaign, featuring Andrea Iannone and rookie Alex Rins.
So if you are watching the Belgium GP this weekend, keep your eyes peeled and tweet us your Guy Martin F1 Spots. Or at least have an extra cuppa in his honour.
The newly formed Eppynt Welsh Road Races which will have none other than Aberdare Park Chairman Derek Smith amongst it’s organisation, are scheduled to take place next year from the 9th to the 5th of August.
Guy Martin’s return to road racing certainly came as a shock when he was unveiled as Honda Racing’s second rider for the season, but there could well be a fair few twists and turns along the road before the fan favourite can even begin to think about achieving his one sole aim: to seal his first Isle of Man TT victory.
Reaction Race is free to download for Apple and Android mobile phones and tablets, and will test your reflexes and precision through five stages of a race. These combine to create a full race challenge, from which you can compare your score against your friends and the rest of the world.
Finally, last Sunday, Guy’s team achieved their dream. After taking part in the Armistice service in Cambrai, Guy drove her in a moving re-enactment of the first battle – starting at the same spot.
The thing is, my Volvo Vöx is probably worth nothing, in that it isn’t an original car, doesn’t have a race pedigree and doesn’t come from a flash brand such as Ferrari. It is not a classic, so it has no monetary value. But if you tot up the cost of all the parts that have been used to make it and the man hours that have been put into building it, then I reckon I nicked it.
Heading out with the elite pit crew, Guy will help set up the garage (make tea) then assist the car crew to build the FW95 car (make tea) He’ll take on two 95 minute practice sessions on Friday, a further hour practice on Saturday before the three-stage qualifying and Sunday’s big race. Although the wording from Williams Martini does make us a little suspicious of his involvement in the actual Qualifying and Race sessions.
Williams is one of the world’s leading Formula 1 teams. It exists purely to race in the top echelon of motor racing, where it has been winning grands prix for more than three decades.
