CRMC Mallory Park 2012
Here's a brief and the photos from Mallory Park.
Paul (aka Taz #46) was racing his standard FJ at Mallory with the Classic Racing club, due to the clash with NGRR we could only manage to get there on the Sunday. But unfortunately we got a call from Taz during Saturday to let us know he'd had an incident (rider & bike, ok) but wasn't going to race on Sunday. He told us that there was another FJ there racing though so we decided we'd pop along to see who it was.
Well when we got there it turned out there was actually FOUR FJ's racing on the Sunday, so that recent article in Practical Sportsbike must have done some good.
We made our way round the paddock and found all four riders so introduced ourselves. There was Chris White #13, Joop Van De Pol #41 from the Netherlands (yes I said Netherlands), Jono Yardley #46 and Andy Pringle #77. Chris White had already ridden his FJ at the last meeting at Lydden and had been liaising with Phil so his was a pretty well sorted (standard ish) FJ. Joop had been racing all season on a 600 but after speaking to Phil at Pembrey had decided to give the FJ a go, his FJ even had the fairing lowers fitted too. Jono has been racing with CRMC for a number of years but never on an FJ and had actually bought Taz's FJ from him the day before, after Taz decided racing wasn't for him, which was a shame but at least the FJ got passed on. It turns out though that Andy is a complete newbie, he's never raced before or ridden an FJ so this was going to be a baptism of fire for him but fair play to him.
Anyway enough waffle from me, here's the photos - http://www.kerryrawson.com/crmcmallory2012
