The final round of the series, the Dez Chand GP, took place at the very good looking Cotswold track. The club guys had done a good job on the track and it looked in excellent condition – plus they had laid on some sunny weather for us.

This is the meeting where we run all classes together and I jumble everyone up so you get a chance to race again people who you wouldn’t normally race against. Always seems to work well, don’t get too many complaints.

It was interesting to see the likes of Fred with his nitro racing against superbikes and giving them a good run their money, something side by side we never usually see.

What was interesting, and I believe this may transform the class, was how well Fred’s sidecar went with a simple and cheap, c£10, gyro fitted. Neal drove it all weekend and the smile on his face was the real evidence of how well it went. As I’m writing this a week or so later I know that there at least another 6 or so sidecars now in the offing due to this simple modification – one of which I’ve got on order!

Hopefully next year will see some more racers turn up as I believe everyone will testify that racing in the bike class is pretty relaxed and easy going compared to other classes.

See you all over the winter for some club racing and hopefully next year for the 2014 season.
