The latest NG (North Gloucester) Road Racing round at Castle Combe attracted many current generation International road racers including Wilmslow’s Sam West.
2018 TT Privateers Championship runner-up West, who will be competing in this year’s Pirelli National Superstock 1000 series racing endeavours over the weekend saw him competing on a 19 years old Louigi Moto 999 Ducati.
Alongside Sound of Thunder podium finishes, he would power to successive Formula Pro Stock FP2 race victories, illustrating the potent competitiveness of his previously mentioned almost 20 years old Ducati mount.
Aside from ten times top 10 TT finisher West, others to raise an eye brow or two with their form around the high speed 1.85 miles long Castle Combe circuit included dominant IMS 600 class pace setter, 2016 Ulster GP Super Twins winner Dan Cooper.
Two stroke 250 front runners Chris Moore and Gary Vines, Super Twins race 2 victor Rhys Hardisty who has confirmed that he will be bringing his immaculate RG500 Suzuki steed to the Oliver’s Mount Barry Sheene Classic.
Respected yesteryear, 400 machinery specialist Alex Sinclair, Glastonbury’s Lee Hembury, Welsh roads favourites Justin ‘Weeman’ Collins (Featured Image) and Paul ‘Potchy’ Williams.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention as well that Hebden Bridge’s Jamie Coward was also circulating around Castle Combe, testing the new KTS Racing, Steadplan Group backed 750 Kawasaki, which hopefully will grace this month Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough.
