New Race Machine - Aprilia Factory RS660 Trofeo
As previously mentioned, a new machine will be joining us early in 2022 - the expected delivery slot remains as March/April 2022. Once the new machine arrives there will be some prep required prior to taking it out on track, so we will happily document that along the way!
Machine Maintenance - Kawasaki Supersport and Supertwin
Both of these race machines will remain in the same specification for the 2022 season. After the final 2021 race meeting we stripped down both machines, cleaned them and serviced them - so they are both ready for action! The Kawasaki Supertwin will be used prior to the Aprilia Factory RS660 Trofeo machine arriving, as well as if ever required as a backup machine.
They say that "whatever space you have you will eventually fill"... and we had eventually got to that point! So in order to make some extra room, we decided to acquire a new 12x8ft "workshop style" shed. A new sturdy base was laid, the shed was installed, and then we set to work adding lighting & racking before moving all "non-race equipment" into the shed - in the neatest way possible of course :-)
Now that our 28x8ft workshop/garage contained less "stuff", we set about reorganising the space so that it was a nicer place to work in. Our 1996 Aprilia RS125SP was temporarily removed from its vac-bag home and we were pleasantly surprised to see it looking as splendid as when we put it away.
Thanks for your support!
Since this website went live at the start of 2013, we are proud to announce that we have received a fantastic 115,481 page views from 43,543 web sessions (by 32,315 unique visitors). The figures for our YouTube channel are just as impressive with 59,312 video views (covering 126,000+ minutes) for the 335 videos we have uploaded - which is even more impressive considering that since 2015 our Darley Moor onboard race videos have only been accessible directly via our race reports!
And last but not least - and better late than never - we would like to wish you all a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
