So whats wrong with you solo and side car riders.We quad boys were ready to Rock 'n' Roll on Sunday.But due to lack of entries, the event was cancelled.Tilehurst Roofing are supporting the trophies this year to help the event succeed.Please show your support, to help encourage tracks to remain open for us.
As there was no racing this weekend, Team Elliott and Dude headed for the coast.John needing a break to heal after his many injuries, was looking forward to a weekend by the sea.Once on the beach I produced 2 kayaks - "Have a go John" I said.Next thing we are in the very rough and cold sea.After an hour we are heading back to shore, but disaster John was thrown from his Kayak and hanging by the seat of his pants... literally.John was caught on the boat, his shorts hooked, and upside down.Dude came to his aid and rang the R.N.L.I - www.haylinglifeboats.org.uk within minutes the racing legend had been rescued.Battered and bruised John said afterwards - Thank God for little Dude!. Johns off to France this weekend racing in a 3 hour enduro event. Next local race Binstead 20th July Moto Cross, side cars and quads.
Dude the Tilehurst Roofing duck, made his second race appearance at Wimborne.Hanging on for grim death he and John managed a third place.Dude said afterwards "It was hard out there, but they didnt ruffle my feathers" Dude jumped onto a KTM 450 on Sunday, but unfortunately crashed on a fast corner.He sustained a stretched head and a sore beak.
The Tilehurst Roofing sponsored team Elliott had a busy weekend.Two race meetings in 2 days and a broken nose. The first a warm and sunny Wimborne, hosted by the Wimborne Motor Cycle Club.Saw our own legend John Elliott qualify through the 3 No Moto's to gain entry into the grasstrack speedway final.The six finalists all showed quality pace and racing skills.John managed to hold off a strong field to finish 3rd.After the event, a presentation was held, and with the third place medal, came £10.00 prize money.Not like the old days...John. The Sunday saw Team Elliott roll into Binstead for the South Hants Scramble Club's first round of a mini series sponsored by Tilehurst Roofing.There was a very strong turn out of quads, with very fast action.Mr Elliott again managed 3rd overall, despite head butting his handlebars and braking his nose....Ouch! Next meet - 20th July - Hawbridge Farm, Near Alton.
The Tilehurst Roofing quad team were at the 14th Pro National MX event at Weston-Super-Mare Beach.Not to be confused with THE Weston beach race.This event is completely different in that the races are short course moto's.There were other events happening, including the amazing freestyle bikes MX, Big Foot and BMX riders. John 'The Legend' Elliott was riding a recently built Honda 400 EX, purposely built for the event.Unfortunately despite good racing the electrics failed, were repaired, and failed again for the final race.Good in a way, as it was chucking it down with high winds.Not a nice trip to the beach. Next event - Binstead on 15th June and our big event The Mortimer Classic pro 65 race at Bennetts Hill - 22nd June.
