Did Donington with them last year and Cadwell the year before. Nice laid-back feel, no superheroes taking it far too seriously. =D>

Mallory's first on Fri 12th April.

Cadwell weekender sounds great. Saturday 3rd August is the Practical Sportsbikes trackday, and the Sunday is the Classic Bike 'Burn Up'. On Saturday night it's party time, with bands playing in the clubhouse, BBQ's in the paddock etc. Got my tent packed already. :mrgreen:

There'll be a Brands Hatch trackday too, no date yet but likely to be 'autumn'.

They've also got a garage booked at Spa for the Bikers Classic on 5-7th July, for those of you feeling a bit more adventurous. :wink:

See Classic Bike Trackdays for details and booking info.
Kawasaki KR250 Tandem Twin (x4) & KS-II 80,
Yamaha RD350LC,
Suzuki GSX-R750RK & RB50 Gag.

Dave, just get your race licence back and come out to play with the TSGP series.

How have you got hold of an RGV500?

No not a proper RGV5 (i wish),Vj22 with the RG500 motor in it,too fast for me but cant beat that Overpowered feeling and the noise! :lol:

Ah I get you. There are a couple of factory RG500's with TSGP. Paul Streets being one racer/owner. There are also a fair few RG500 Gamma's that makes the grids, well worth seeing.

Be good to see you on yours at Mallory.

Usually about 5ish at Mallory. They can't run too late because of the noise row with the neighbours.

Thats good to hear Paul Streets is still racing the RG's,i met him over 10years ago at a Meet at Snetterton (new era),he was running in the "sound of Thunder" class against Modern V twin 1000's,he had an Alloy framed powervalve Gamma (MK6?) and an early steel framed version with NO powervalves that was done up in Sheenie colours (Texaco heron).
He started at the back but won by a mile :lol:
Remember he had a Welsh mechanic/mate,he ran across the paddock to bump the 500,it fired up right by this old granny having her lunch,nearly fell off her perch! :lol:
There team was called "team lucky streetsy" :D
Great rider and a nice guy,be good to see him out there again.
we got 7 sessions at mallory CBT last year,20mins each hour,was knackered at the end of it,then had to drive 250 miles home,but worth it :D
What can you race in the TSGP series?would love to race my 125RS,but dont fancy racing against a load of 16 year olds on £20,000 BSB spec machines :lol:
Dave :D

Lucky Streetsy is still going and he'll be at Donington at the June meet I'm proposing.

I am pretty certain your 125 is elligable, as it's designed to accommodate all and very open and I am one of the younger riders in this class.

Do you use facebook?

There's a facebook page which has more detail.

I came across TSGP when Virginia Power posted on here last summer.

I was interested in the series personally, but also in the interest of Derby Phoenix and bringing potential revenue to them.

I went down to see them race and meet the organiser (Mick Stokes) in September. Grids are a broad mix of GP and production class bikes (mainly YPM for that meet).

This was the qualifying results sheet from Saturday morning.

After our discussions over the winter, this year Mick has split the clubs who host the series to 3x2 BEMSEE, NG and DP.

April 13/14 Brands Indy, Bemsee.

I certainly feel it's a series which is gaining some momentum. The folks involved are all really sound too.

I am expecting to see slightly bigger grids this year from what I posted there as well.
