Once again, I have been talked into spannering for Astro JJR in the National Superstock series at this year’s British Superbike Races. This year we are running with three riders all on BMW S1000RR machines
We have retained our Kiwi Rider Shane Richardson for a 3rd year and are looking for a strong year from him this year after a year of getting up to speed in the class.
New for this year we have David Allingham, David has been around the paddock for a few years riding for EHA racing in both BSB and Supersport and last year on the Aprilla with IN Racing. We are very confident that he will fit straight into the team and will be front running from the start of the season once we have had a few test sessions with him getting to grips with the S1000RR.
In addition to David, we have a up and coming young rider who finished 3rd in the Junior Superstock last year on board our ZX636 Caolon Irwin. Caolon will be riding our last year’s S1000RR which finished on the podium a few times with Damon Rees on board. His aim for this year is to get settled with the additional power and get used to how competitive the other rides will be. There are no expectations on Caolon this year but as all riders he will be giving it all as he always has done.
We have a comprehensive testing schedule set up Round 1 Oulton Park and are hoping this year that eventually we will be able to invite spectators to enjoy the racing and atmosphere of the paddock. There will a limited number of discounted tickets available for each round once we have the ok from Boris.
