Craig Neve Impresses On Mount Debut

Craig Neve impressed many on his Oliver’s Mount debut at the Spring Cup National Road Races, in particular his performance in the second Classic Superbike race, caught the attention of a fare few.

Piloting the Rich Ellis backed OWO1 Yamaha, the Immingham based rider battled his way to a great second, finishing just over six seconds behind race winner Dave Bell.

This was backed up by additional high quality results aboard the VRS Racing BMW, which included 4th in the second Solo Open B race, plus a very respectable 14th in the feature race of the meeting, the Bob Smith Spring Cup.

Speaking about his accomplished Scarborough debut, Craig stated via his Facebook page:

“Mint weekend for me at Scarborough, steadily chipping away at lap times as I learnt the circuit.

We had a 4th in the B final and a 2nd in the Classic Superbike, Rich Ellis’s OWO1 was a pleasure to ride. Thanks to Mr B (Peter Boast) for talking me into racing at Scarborough!

Thanks to Robbie Silvester for letting me ride the BMW!”

Tipped to be a future front runner at Oliver’s Mount, Craig has the potential in my opinion to in the near future, soon become a winner around England’s only real roads venue.
