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!

Paul, Heavey, Flynn and the rest ready for the off.....
Chris Paul was the man in Formula Vee back in 1991, with Padraic Owens pushing him hard (before dominating the class the following year.) In this one, FF1600 Star Pat Duffy makes a cameo experience, in a borrowed Sheane. He qualifies on the second row, anticipates the start slightly and the rest, as they say, is history! Read More →

It was this close all weekend! Image from autosportpics.com
Last year I did not have a spare minute to even think about writing a blog about my experience in the ITCC 2013 championship. A newly built car with a few issues required all of my time and attention! So I decided I would make an effort this year to give everyone a little insight as to how the little E46 saloon came about.
