Well, that’s the first round of the Adelaide Masters series from Mondello Park over, and what an enjoyable weekend it turned out to be! I had been down testing on the Wednesday at Woolsey Coulter’s ART day which had left me brimming with confidence rolling into the first round, I was chuffed with how the bike felt and was pretty happy with how...

Motorsport.ie's Biking blogger Jamie Masterson has been working hard over the winter months, both on his fitness and chasing sponsorship- he seems to have done well at both!
With the new season looming, I’m focusing on just one thing- victory in 2014. After a poor season in 2013, I’m looking to bounce back and get back to my winning ways. With a mixture of bad luck and low team morale we struggled all year to get to terms with the big AMA Suzuki but now with a new bike, new sponsors, full fitness and a positive... [Read more...]

Jamie at speed on his JMR Suzuki.
After another great weekend for all the JMR squad at rounds 7 and 8 of the Adelaide Masters series from Bishopscourt, I’m now well on top of my game knocking seconds of my personal best laptime around the Northern Irish Circuit. After a slow start to the season where I struggled to even match my laptimes from last year I’ve clicked into... [Read more...]

2013 has been tough so far- but Jamie is confident the improvements will keep coming.
After a tough start to my 2013 superbike campaign, I’m starting to make good headway on dialing in my ex Celtic Racing USA SUZUKI GSXR. After a few hair pulling months of getting nowhere and not even being able to qualify for the main Superbike races, we’ve made some changes which have put us heading in the right direction, Slowly but surely...

Jamie was delighted to have finally pinpointed the reason for his previous lack of pace!
Finally starting to make progress on my new Suzuki after many weekends struggling to even break that magic minute! After many a sleepless nite and head melting weeks of doing laps of Mondello Park in my head trying to find out where I was going so wrong. I’d be the first person to put up my hand and say I was riding crap but I knew I wasn’t... [Read more...]

Jamie is still getting used to his new for 2013 Suzuki.
April 6/7 saw the kickoff of the 2013 Adelaide Masters Series at my local track, Mondello Park and after a bad start to my season, I was hoping for my run of bad luck to change!!

With the new season looming and D day getting closer, it's all go to get both me and the bike 110 percent for the 2013 championship.
With the new season looming and D day getting closer, it’s all go to get both me and the bike 110 percent for the 2013 championship. I’m still undecided exactly which championship to compete in, but should be wiser in the next few weeks.. Last week I travelled over to Spain with Wolsley Coulter to Circuito Cartegena for a week test to try... [Read more...]

Smashing the sub magic-minute lap time around the Mondello national circuit and a brace of Adelaide Masters Cup race wins added to what has been a hugely successful season for the tin-topper turned Superbike rider Jamie Masterson
Thats it for another season! It was my first year in the Superbike cup class and realistically I suppose, I couldn’t have asked for much more. I started the season with hopes of getting a podium and getting sub minute laps at Mondello Park and then come the end of the season, not only did I get a podium but I won my first superbike cup race, won...

Jamie aims to turn his look around at the next Mondello Masters event
Blogging here from sunny Spain, for a much needed rest after a disapointing weekend at the Adelaide Masters rounds 9 and 10. Not dwelling on the results too much as you can’t have a good weekend every weekend!! The pace was very fast and I was struggling from a lack of rear grip on the Saturday test, we made a few changes which improved the problem... [Read more...]
