A year is upon us and the hard work has already started and planning for the 2008 race season. Iíll be renewing my association with Robbie Silvester and running under his VRS performance team banner again. Iíve known Robbie for twenty five years or more and pleased to be involved in a professional team. Iíll be part of a three man team alongside Keith Stewart and Craig Atkinson.
I shall be racing my own ex Jakub Smrz 250 GP Honda, and also Robbieís ex Fabien Foret 600cc Yamaha. My main races for the year will be all Scarborough meetings, Aberdare Park, the 250 TT , S100 and selected Irish roads subject to finances.
Iím now back training in my local gym plus cycling and swimming, and at the start of the season Iíll be in the best shape in my life. After a years lay off the season canít come fast enough for me, we are planning a test session in Spain to get us all back on the pace,and get all the bikes set uo properly for the forth coming season.
I now have most of my trade sponsors in place including, Shark helmets, TCX boots, Scott leathers held gloves, Knox and EDZ. Iím also in talks with various companies discussing personal sponsorship packages. The 2008 season will be my twenty fifth road racing, jeez I must be getting old now lol.
