Round Five. Bonnie Scotland. Superbike Winners.

This is the blog I’ve dreamt of writing. FS-3 Racing and Danny Buchan, superbike class winners. Here’s how it all unfolded. We were in Scotland so there was a chance of the weather introducing some variables, and so it proved. The heatwave just about reached Knockhill on Friday but by Saturday and Sunday it was […]

Round Four. Soggy Kent. Wet or Dry.

Last year we arrived at Brands Hatch at the height of the heatwave which had left the spectator banks scorched brown. This year there were pictures of Graham Hill Bend submerged by a flash flood earlier in the week. Fortunately, things had dried out when we arrived, but the weather was looking changeable, to say […]

Round Three. Back to Leicestershire. Funny Old Weekend.

More particularly, back to the original Donington Park national circuit layout, last used by the British Superbike Championship in 2002. That event marked Shakey Byrne’s first win in the championship he went on to dominate. The layout misses the Melbourne Loop and instead uses the Roberts esses to link the back straight with the start/finish […]

Round Two. Chilly Cheshire. Consistent Performances.

The whole team, and especially Danny and Lee, were looking forward to Oulton Park. A proper circuit after the high-speed triangle of the Silverstone National layout and one which demands precise bike set up and rider commitment. Better still, a test day was scheduled for the week before the round. We’d be able to fine-tune […]

Round One. Sunny Silverstone. And so it Begins.

Something unusual happened. Standard Silverstone issue thermals packed away after the previous week’s test day to be replaced by short sleeves as we bathed in the glorious Easter weather. One less variable to worry about on track and a draw for a big crowd. Although it provides great entertainment, the Silverstone National layout over 1.64 […]

Spain, Portugal, Silverstone. Testing Times.

With the winter’s preparations completed, the FS-3 Racing transporter set off south. Over 1,000 miles south in fact, as the crow flies, to Seville in southern Spain. A couple of days or so by road and ferry, if you’re unfortunate enough to have to do the driving. The new for 2019 ‘official’ Bennett’s British Superbike […]

A Winter’s Tale. Five Months Preparing for a Test.

The 2019 Bennett’s British Superbike Championship started for FS-3 Racing as the flag dropped on the final race of 2018 at Brands Hatch. A cold mid-October afternoon. Five months later, Mediterranean warmth in mid-March. This week our superbike and superstock 1000 machines will be rolling down the pitlane at the Monte Blanco circuit in southern […]
