It’s unusual to be making only the first trip of the year to Kirkistown at the end of June but that’s the way the calendar worked out this year so on the longest day of the year I was headed north. Having been unable to secure a lift on the Saturday morning it was out with the bike for a 7am start. Good time was made despite a stop for fuel near... [Read more...]

I had a good feed at lunchtime as I figured there would be limited options for eating once we crossed the border, Holstein and O’Brien slug it out for ITCC honours. plus the fact I had very little sterling didn’t help matters.... [Read more...]

It was great to have the season starting back at its early St Patrick’s weekend slot after a few years of April beginnings, but there was nothing spring like about the mid March weather which was damp and gloomy. The not too hectic schedule saw me arriving just after ten having dispatched my F1 duties early following the Australian GP. Qualifying... [Read more...]

It was back to business as normal after the hectic Formula Vee Festival for the July meeting at Kirkistown.

The sun shone brightly and the weather was as hot as the on track action for the 45th birthday of Mondello Park recently.

Due to crossed wires I was still fast asleep when JD rang to say he was 2 minutes away to pick me up for the May meeting at Kirky but everything was ready to go, so I grabbed my camera bag and we were on our way.
