It is the intention to take it initially short circuit racing, then may be endurance if i can get a good enough team together. Already have a good mechanic and another good rider. I have a lot to do as i tend to work on large engineering contracts through the dark months, maybe away from home etc. which makes it difficult to work on the bikes.

I think for next year i will be doing some racing and track-days and maybe some of the Belgian classic events like Chimay, Geddine etc. as i love the relaxed nature of those races :shock:

I need to find some more room for bikes first :roll:

I've been down to Phase 1 and used to mechanic for Team Glam Racing against Russel and the boys.

Peter is as hard as a rock and would wring the neck of their P&M's usually to podium places.

He was or still is a fighter pilot I believe.

Myth, story or truth has it that he "borrowed" a fighter one day and went and "buzzed" the start finish straight at one of the tracks he was racing at.

Cheers

You'll need someone to tell you which parts are not standard.

I'm your man - if you have a parts book that is.
