Vicki Gray - Race Girl

Posted on: Monday, Dec 06 2004



For me motorsports is definitely a lifestyle! I've had the pleasure of owning various motorcycles through the years & currently own three, a Ten Kate Honda CBR600RR, a Ducati 900SSC, & a lovely loud] Husqvarna 250cc two stroke!

I can not ever imagine my life without the activities of riding! My riding activities have changed since 2000 when I discovered & started racing on the track. It is this thrill, this sensation, this challenge in skill and its progression that has me totally addicted.

Motorsports supply me my greatest & best thrills of all!

2004 - New partnership with the world famous Ten Kate Honda Racing! This deal is also with Honda Europe where I competed on a new Honda CBR600RR prepared by Ten Kate (World Supersport Champions 2003).


2003 - Raced on same 1992 Honda CBR600F with very limited budget (no sponsor money). Due to this factor, I could not participate in as many races as desired. Best race 8 August, TT Circuit Assen - pole position and finished 4th.


2002 - Fantastic race season, Riding the 1992 Honda CBR600F (no new machine). Accomplished new best personal time at Assen of 1.34!! With average lap times at 1.36 &8217;s. Further raced in the annual Ducati Club Races, Assen on sponsored Ducati Monster 620ie by Motor Mercuur!


2001 - My second race season on the HondaCBR600F! Again, much progression. Also raced in the Ducati Club races on Ducati Monster 900 via Motor Mercuur ...super!!


2000 - First season (April to Sept.) Great year ahead as I started on my journey into this sport, this man world.


1999 - Enrolled in TOMS course (race license course)at Zandvoort. Obtained license to RACE! Tried 2 races at Zandvoort in the Dutch Zomeravond Competition, but just after 2nd race, my Ducati 750SSC was stolen (!!) from the circuit which brought my racing to an immediate & disaapointing STOP. Later purchased a Ducati 900SSC (current street bike) & entered my first Ducati Club Race, in September at Assen. Near crashes but had a blast! November purchased a 1992 Honda CBR600F & decided to start racing for real beginning 2000!!
