See you at Farleigh Castle Vets MXDN this weekend 3/4 September.
Big MX weekend coming up.
I'm just loading up #602 and 'Ol Blue before heading off down the M4 to Somerset and the Vets Des Nations.
Will have a stand and have some parts with me. Kettle will be on so happy to welcome anyone over for a chat and to look over the bikes. I'm entered in the Pre'83 Class with 4 other Huskys - including a couple of my customers! Its a good day out even if you aren't riding. Tickets still available with action starting at 9am on both days and the postcode is BA2 7RR Click for map.
A full line up of fifteen teams will take to the famous Farleigh Castle circuit for two days of hard racing in front of them and expect Team South Africa or Team Belgium to be the most likely challengers for podium places. Ex World Champion, Grant Langston leads South Africa and is backed up by Ryan Hunt, Andre David and Tony Riddell. Another Ex MX3 World Champion Sven Breugelmans joins Werner De Wit at the head of Team Belgium whilst Team Manager Danny Scheers has David Cools and Jurgen Van Nooten as the other point scoring riders.
There are also four races for the Twinshock Nations races and last year's winners, Germany have again assembled a strong proven team of Laurent Lacasse, Jurgen Kuppers, Maik Kaltenberg and Frank Jansen - Teitz. Iron man Breugelmans also features in these races for Belgium with Birk Schelfaut, Bengt Laeremans and David Cools completing the quartet. The UK Team will be looking to improve on last year's fifth position and hopes rest with Terry House, Wayne Butt, Pete Mathia and Ewan Johnson.
Apart from two team races for both classes each day there are also the eight supporting classes of 480 riders making this event the biggest motocross gathering within the UK!
