Motostar Silverstone 2017

Motostar Silverstone 2017

Scott's third meeting on the Motostar bike and another track to learn. Conditions were changeable over the weekend but his class were lucky with two dry races and some wet time during FP2 on Friday. Scott improved on his lap times all weekend, closing the gap to the leaders and generally working on getting the bike right for the excellent GP circuit. The standard bikes were joined by 18 riders from the ADAC championship which runs in Northern Europe but it was business as usual with Scott battling with Jake Clark, Taylor Fox Moreton and Ross Turner and finishing in P8 in race 1 with burnt out clutch and P9 in the second race before the heavens opened for the afternoon. Thanks to the Microlise Cresswell Racing and to our sponsors Malton Laser. Thanks also for our continued support from DC Butler Motorcycles, A18 Motorcycles and Allotts Chartered Accountants of Doncaster. Scott will be at Oulton Park next weekend, once again...

British Talent Cup selection event 2018

British Talent Cup selection event 2018

Thank you to everyone for their support and congratulations. Wednesday at the selection event was a tough day and there were many excellent riders who didn't make it through to the final 22 plus 6 reserves. Good luck to them next year. The final numbers included 10 current Motostar riders and 18 from other championships including 5 from the KTM Cup and 3 from Bemsee/Thundersports. There are a number of riders from the Spanish Championships and from Minibike bikes/ MX (the World MX 85 Champion!)/Scotland and Ireland. We think it is a great opportunity. It's what British and Irish racing has needed for some time. Thank you to Dorna Sports for use of the images. ...

Motostar Cadwell Park 2017

Motostar Cadwell Park 2017

Sunday at Cadwell Park started with P6 in morning warm up after some setting changes to the rear shock. Scott started from dead last on the grid having been run off the track on Saturday and not setting a lap time. He got a decent start and spent a few laps breaking clear of the riders around him and then set about closing the battle for fifth place. Unfortunately, he ran out of time and had to settle for 7th and a fifth fastest lap time of 1:37.1. He now heads off to Silverstone for the British Talent Cup selection on Tues/Weds. The next BSB round is also at Silverstone in the 3 weeks time. Many thanks to our friends and supporters who made the trip to Cadwell, to All the Team at Microlise Cresswell Racing and to Scott's sponsors. Congratulations to Charlie Corner of Malton Laser who took his first Pro Am victory on Saturday afternoon from 7th on the grid....

Motostar Thruxton 2017

Motostar Thruxton 2017

A great start to Scott's Motostar season. BSB Thruxton on a new track, new bike, first time on slicks and as part of a Team environment with Microlise Cresswell Racing. FP 1 and 2 were a learning experience with many changes to gearing and suspension and an introduction to working with data logging. FP2 highlighted a couple of issues with the quickshifter which lost Scott a few laps. Qualifying started well before a shower swept across the circuit. 5 mins in the pits and the track had dried sufficiently to continue. Scott finished in tenth in the standard class. Race one was dry. Scott had an excellent battle with Jake Clark, Ross Turner, Shane Faber and Luke Hopkins who subsequently highsided at the chicane, nearly taking Scott and Jake with him. Ross got a bit of a gap leaving Jake and Scott to battle it out on the last lap. Scott managed to get past for an excellent 7th place and with a...
